Minka Kelly: 'I'm Not Worthy' of Acting with Oprah

Originally posted 02/08/2013 07:40PM

It's intimidating enough to play Jackie O, but Minka Kelly felt even more pressure to perform when she found out who was joining the cast of her latest film, The Butler.

"I'm not worthy. I feel so lucky and grateful. I was like, 'What am I doing here?!' " Kelly tells PEOPLE of starring alongside Robin Williams, Forest Whitaker, John Cusack, Vanessa Redgrave, Jane Fonda and more in the upcoming film, which tells the story of a butler who served eight presidents.

The movie also features another major star: the one and only Oprah Winfrey. "I didn't get to meet Oprah because our shooting schedules were different, but she's a pretty loved lady," Kelly says. "I have yet to hear a bad thing about her!"

Mandy Moore and Minka Kelly are ladies who brunch.

Joined by another female friend, the pair stepped out for brunch at BLD in West Hollywood on Saturday.

"They were very low-key and sat in the center of the restaurant, pretty much unnoticed by fellow diners," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Both of the famous friends were dressed down – Moore wore her hair in a bun and a gray V-neck T-shirt, while Minka sported a cozy gray sweater with her hair down in waves – and "didn't have a stitch of makeup on," the source adds.

While deep in conversation, Moore sipped on iced tea while the table shared granola, fruit, sandwiches and salads.

The Voice coach stepped out on Saturday with boyfriend Matthew Rutler for film and television producer Jennifer Klein's annual private holiday party in Los Angeles.

Arriving around 11:30 p.m. with a small group of friends, the duo "looked to be in the best of moods, sitting in a corner, happily sipping on Russian Standard Vodka Moscow mules while their friends sang and dance to Michael Jackson," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They seemed to be quite in love and happy!"

Other guests included Chris Evans and girlfriend Minka Kelly, who donned "giant smiles" as they stayed close throughout the evening.

Meanwhile, Mad Men's Christina Hendricks dressed for the holiday theme in a red plaid dress and enjoyed cocktails with her husband Geoffrey Arend and friends.

Minka Kelly as Jackie O: How Does She Stack Up?

Originally posted 08/15/2012 05:20PM

Playing the role of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is no easy task – and an impressive list of actresses have portrayed the former First Lady onscreen, including Katie Holmes in The Kennedys last year. And now a new star can add Jackie O. to her resume: Minka Kelly.

The Friday Night Lights actress, 32, is set to appear as Onassis in The Butler, which premieres in 2013 and stars James Marsden as John F. Kennedy.

Kelly was recently snapped in full Jackie O garb with Marsden on the film's New Orleans set, which recalls a similar picture of Holmes in costume last year.

Do you think Kelly has what it takes to play the beloved Jackie O? Or did Holmes look better as the wife of the 35th President of the United States?
