If you’re an a– stay away from Oprah Winfrey and the team at OWN.
Oprah Winfrey shared during Tuesday night’s season finale celebration for Queen Sugar that she keeps her sets harassment free by being very choosy about who she works with.
“We don’t want any a——- around us,” she said before describing the casting process that weeds out any person whose spirit doesn’t line up.
“First of all, starting with all-female directors,” she continued. “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?’”
“So we’re looking at those things and not just looking at who’s gonna be the star and take the lead, but looking at how does it all integrate so that it can evolve into something bigger,” Winfrey said.
