Oprah Smokes Cigarette In Goodbye ‘Love Scene’ w/ Terrence Howard In Photo From ‘The Butler’

Oprah Smokes Cigarette In Goodbye 'Love Scene' w/ Terrence Howard In Photo From 'The Butler'

Oprah Winfrey has been the most active cast member of Lee Daniels’ The Butler on Twitter, sharing several on-set photos of herself and other cast members, with a millions of followers, much to their delight.

However, I’m not sure if this new photo she said shared yesterday is one they were expecting to see from Ms Winfrey. It came with the following caption:

And THAT’s a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in our goodbye “love scene”. Thanks Lee Daniels for the great experience. #theButler

So, from that, we can infer that there’s a love scene in the film between Terrence Howard and Oprah! You probably didn’t see that coming did you? Although, while this is a Lee Daniels-directed project (a filmmaker who isn’t at all hesitant to be risque with his material), The Butler is expected to be a PG or PG13 movie, so don’t expect some Monster’s Ball-style romping between the two actors, or for Oprah to pee on Terrence like Nicole Kidman does to Zac Efron in The Paperboy – both films being Lee Daniels products as well.

The Butler has a loaded cast that includes: Forest WhitakerOprah WinfreyDavid Oyelowo, John CusackAlan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Melissa Leo,Liev SchreiberJesse Williams, Mariah CareyYaya DaCosta, and many more.

Music for the film will be composed by the legendary Quincy Jones.

Laura Ziskin Production, The Butler is being produced by Pamela Oas Williams, the late Laura Ziskin, Lee Daniels, and Cassian Elwes; executive produced by Hilary Shor and Adam Merims; and co-produced by David Jacobson.

The independently-financed film is bankrolled by Follow Through ProductionsWindy Hill PicturesSalamander MediaSalloway Rubenstein Productions/Crystal City EntertainmentEarl W. StaffordStarstream FilmsYogi Entertainment, and Inner Media Capital

The Weinstein Company acquired USA distribution rights to the film, for a 2013 release.

The film is scripted to cover several decades in the life of Allen, the White House butler who served many presidents.

This is not flattering. A woman smoking a cigarette with an ashtray breath is not sexy folks!!!!

Yes, this image pertains to a scene in the script.


I'm guessing she is being facetious.


Is this a scene from the film or Oprah and Terrence kidding around on the set ?


Got damn, Oprah! Nearly spit out my orange juice and scrambled egg you looking so damn fine! And Terrance…c'mon man, call me…




Great still! Oprah looks fierce… "fatal"


I lovelovelove this image. Hot! She looks like a right and proper movie star! A blues woman. Sort of earthy and weathered and glamorous.
