That Time Oprah Almost Played A Masturbating Maid In The Paperboy

Precious director Lee Daniels' scored a big thumbs up from us by casting Zac Efron to dance around in his underwear in The Paperboy, but it turns out he wanted another one of our favorite people to star as well — Oprah Winfrey!

And if he got his way, she would been MASTURBATING on the big screen for all to see!

The director recently revealed that he originally asked the Big O to play the part of Anita the maid, but after she turned it down, he cast Macy Gray instead.

While it would have been VERY inneresting to see Oprah in the role because it required her to masturbate on the floor during a scene, Daniels admitted the singer was "the right choice after all" and explained:

nicole kidman n word paperboy

She'll pee on Zac Efron's leg, but you can't make her say the N word!!

As much as Paperboy director Lee Daniels wanted her to say it for the film, Nicole Kidman refused.

And she confessed why at the New York Film Festival! (As if we didn't already kind of already know…)

Explaining she didn't want to "go home at night and feel discomfort," she says:

Oprah Gives Us A Glimpse Of Jane Fonda's Uncanny Nancy Reagan In The Butler

Oprah Winfrey is just too kind!

On top of giving us the first glimpse of her and Lenny Kravitz's characters from the set of Lee Daniels' The Butler, she tweeted a photo of an unrecognizable Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan (above).

Srsly! She's almost identical, don't ya think?

And who is the actor playing Ronald Reagan? It's none other than Professor Snape himself — Alan Rickman!

Along with the sweet set pic, the OWN star wrote:

Every day, we see someone else on the set of The Butler!

This movie's production is like a revolving door of talent!

And today, MAN CANDY!

That's right, Alex Pettyfer was spotted walking around in between takes of the Lee Daniels-directed historical drama, which chronicles a White House butler who served eight different Presidents, and the seksi actor treated us all to another look at his absolutely lick-able BOD as he no doubt tried to beat the New Orleans summer heat!

Ch-ch-check him out (above)!

MmmMmmGOOD!

Now excuse us while we go lie down.

We're having some DEBILITATING Magic Mike flashbacks! Ha!

First Look At Forest Whitaker In The Butler

Filed under: Film FlickersOprah Winfrey

Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels is hard at work in New Orleans filming The Butler and the first pic of his main character has been released (above).

Forest Whitaker stars as the titular character based on Eugene Allen, a butler who served eight different presidents and their families living in the White House.

This photo is nice and all, but what we REALLY want to see is what Oprah is going to look like as Whitaker's on-screen wife!

Her return to the big screen alone is enough to make us want to see this drama, but the rest of the talented cast is a plus too!
