Oprah Reveals Why She’s Not in 2023’s ‘The Color Purple’

In the wacky world of movie cameos, Oprah Winfrey, the queen of everything, decided to sit this one out for the 2023 version of The Color Purple. Now, if you didn’t know, Oprah was strutting her stuff as Sofia back in ’85 and even got herself an Oscar nomination for that grand performance. But this time around, she decided to take on the role of producer and let someone else steal the spotlight.

So, why did Oprah ditch the idea of a cameo in the 2023 film? Well, gather ’round for the tale. According to the high priestess of talk shows herself, she pondered the idea and figured a cameo would’ve been perfect in the church scene. Picture this: Oprah in the back pew, waving and mouthing, “Hey, it’s me, Oprah!” But hold your horses, because she had a revelation. Imagine the chaos if the original Sofia showed up casually in the middle of a Georgia church, smack in the middle of a pandemic! Oprah said, “No way I’m sitting in that church all day, honey.”

Cue Oprah’s infectious laughter. She spilled the tea to THR, saying, “And also I just think it’s more special that it’s just Whoopi Goldberg making the cameo.” Oprah, the wise decision-maker, spared us the sight of her fabulous self battling COVID in a church pew and let Whoopi take the cameo crown. Bless her heart, and let the church of laughter say, “Amen!”
