Oprah also branched out into acting. She was also criticized for serving as a surrogate for him. I don't think she had any intention of declaring. She is credited with roles in almost 30 movie and TV productions, including a role in director Steven Spielberg's The Colour Purple that earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress.
