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:

├óΓé¼┼ôEverybody has [their] own interpretation. She would have played it very stoic, you know, something very different.”

Very different indeed. Of all the things that Oprah has done on the big and little screen, we don’t think that’s one of them — and we don’t think it ever will be!

Everybody has their line! LOL!
