Oprah Winfrey Channels Her Inner Nicki Minaj, Shows Off Her Wig Game

A make-up free Oprah recently shared her “girls” a.k.a her wigs on set of her new movie The Butler that she is currently filming in New Orleans. For those unfamiliar with her latest film, the movie is based on the story of Eugene Allen. Allen was a black man who worked as a butler from 1952 to 1986 serving eight Presidents in the White House. Starting out as a pantry man, Allen had the ultimate seat in the White House, observing first hand political and U.S history in the making (monumental moments like the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy and John F. Kennedy) while working at the White House. Allen and his wife of 65 years were overjoyed that they would finally get to foresee a black president in office after so many years. Featuring an all-star cast, the film features Oprah, Cuba Gooding Jr., Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, Lenny Kravitz, Minka Kelly and Alex Pettyfer. There are rumors that Mila Kunis may portray Jackie Kennedy and that John Cusack will play Richard Nixon. Other names that have been floating around are Hugh Jackman with David Oyelowo (Red Tails) being looked into as portraying the role of the Butler. The film is being directed by Lee Daniels who worked with Oprah while directing Precious. The Butler is expected to hit theaters sometime next year.
