Oprah ‘Doesn’t Want Any A**holes’ On Set With Her
When it comes to sexual harassment, Oprah Winfrey is not having any part.
When she was asked by People magazine about how her staff and actors are protected on the sets of her OWN shows, she said: “We don’t want any a—holes around us.”
“First of all, starting with all-female directors,” she explained how actors and crew are vetted. “Ava [DuVernay] casts from the spirit of the person and looks for skill and talent. You’re casting with the very idea of surrounding yourself and when you’re looking at casting you’re looking at ‘Does this guy fit with this woman? Does this little boy fit? Could those two people have had that boy? And how do we make this family?’”
