Butler Of Course

Making her return to the silver screen, Winfrey stars as the wife of White House butler Eugene Allen (Forest Whitaker) in Lee Daniels' The Butler. "Lee doesn't care what your name is," she says of joining an ensemble cast, though she admits, "I suppose it would surprise a lot of people that I can take direction so well, because it's very hard for me to stay out of it!" The film opens at No. 1 over opening weekend.

Oprah gives fans a chance to get an up-close look at the life of Lindsay Lohan with a documentary series titled Lindsay for OWN. The show ends with the troubled actress revealing a dark secret. "No one knows this, and we can finish after this, I had a miscarriage for the two weeks that I took off," Lohan says on the show. "I was sick. And mentally that messes with you."
