Oprah Winfrey: ‘If I had kids, they would hate me’



Oprah Winfrey has opened up about her reasons for never having children.

The talk show host explained that she has no desire to be a mother and only fantasised about being an icon as a child.

Comparing herself to her best friend Gayle King, Winfrey told The Hollywood Reporter: “Gayle [now a mother-of-two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade Home Ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children.

“The #SamsungTwitterParty is back! Get ready to party the night away come 19th December at Zone 7 with fellow tweeps. Entrance is 15,000shs. Call 0775439894 for details. Great music and drinks.”

“While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King.”

She continued: “If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”

The star, who appears in new movie The Butler, also spoke about the school she opened in South Africa in 2007 which she has contributed $100 million towards.

The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls has a 100% graduation rate and every member of the school’s first three graduating classes has continued on to college.

She went on to say that she regularly exchanges emails with the students. “I’m responding to everything from ‘I’m feeling lost’ to ‘I need advice about a boy’,” she said.

Winfrey added that she’d always felt the desire to be charitable, saying she wanted to be a missionary when she started primary school.

“I’d collect it in a little cup and take it back to church on Sunday to give to the starving children of Costa Rica. I always felt that whatever you have, you have to share it.”
