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.

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?

Minka Kelly was feeling fishy on Wednesday night when she popped into Pearl Dive Oyster Palace for dinner with two friends in Washington, D.C.

"She [seemed] very happy," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "[The group] was all laughing with each other. Minka was very sweet, at ease and casual. She [seemed] really fun."

Kelly was in such a good mood that when she was approached by a fan who was being deployed to Afghanistan the next day, she ended up paying for his meal.
