It's no secret Oprah Winfrey has struggled with her weight for many years.

Time and time again, we've heard stories of Oprah's tales of woe when it comes to her fluctuating weight, especially over the last few years. From fad diets to intense workout routines, it seems like O has earnestly tried everything only to end up in failure.

Speaking on her low point and the flack she has received from fans over the years, Winfrey confessed:

"None of those people had stood in their closets with three different sizes to try on on the floor, where the waistline didn't fit and the arms didn't fit, and the hips didn't fit, and you can't get it zipped, and felt that shame and that humiliation of 'Wow, I can't believe I'm in this position again.'"

Aw, how heartbreaking. We can't imagine the shame and humiliation O.W. must have felt as not only a public person but as a motivational speaker.

Luckily for the talk show host, she was able to find redemption in Weight Watchers. The spokesperson complimented the program's focus on community and supportive members as for why she was finally able to get back on track.

After it was reported that Joseph Fiennes would be playing Michael Jackson in an upcoming British TV movie, many critics found the casting choice a perfect example of the entertainment industry's lack of minority representation!

The Shakespeare In Love actor claimed due to Jackson's skin pigmentation, casting a white guy to play the King of Pop in the 9/11 road trip comedy Elizabeth, Michael, and Marlon wasn't a big deal, explaining:

"He was probably closer to my color than his original color."

But the late music legend was always against the prospect of a white actor playing him on the screen, telling Oprah Winfrey back in 1993 that the idea was "ridiculous."
