Unlike most couples in Hollywood, Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham have famously kept their relationship out of the spotlight. And in a candid interview with Gwyneth Paltrow, Winfrey shared how she came to this personal decision and the lesson she learnt about not inviting the media into her private life.
“I lived, as you have lived, every other week in the tabloids,” Winfrey explained to Paltrow.
The media icon revealed she found it really upsetting when false stories were being created about her and joked that she was always happy when Paltrow was on the covers, instead of herself, “to take the heat off me”.
Oprah shared that when she would get upset about the tabloids, she would confide in Maya Angelou about her struggles.
