Born on January 29, 1954 in the family of a maid and a miner, however, her parents were only in a civil marriage. All her childhood Oprah Winfrey spent in the wilderness, where she learned to read and write only thanks to her grandmother. Oprah still considers her the most dear person in her life, because it was her grandmother who began to take her granddaughter to church, where she retold the Bible in front of parishioners and learned not to be afraid of the public. The upbringing was strict, but correct. At the age of six, her mother took the girl to her - in Wisconsin - and these were truly difficult times. In those years, dark-skinned people were perceived in a completely different way. But it was there that the girl began to perform in public in public clubs.

At the age of nine, Opruh had a nightmare. She was raped by a cousin. Several years of attempts to come to terms with this have not been crowned with success. At 13, Winfrey steals money from her mother and runs away from home. Upon her return, Oprah learns that her mother abandoned her. The girl ends up in an orphanage and becomes pregnant at the age of 14. Then her father took custody of her. The child died shortly after birth.

In 1971, enlightenment came in this incredibly black streak of failures. After participating in the Miss Black America contest, Oprah was offered a job on one of the TV channels. In 1976 she became a news announcer and later the second presenter of Baltimore Says.

However, the sentimental girl was not very attracted to her acting career. All these years she devoted her own television project The Oprah Winfrey Show. This is what made her world famous. Oprah has become the highest paid host in the world, and the show has been broadcast in its entire history in 146 countries. In 2011, having reached the climax of popularity, the presenter curtailed her project and opened her own TV channel.

In parallel with this, Oprah is actively involved in entrepreneurship, charity, visits third world countries and helps victims of natural disasters.

She also appears in films from time to time. New films with Oprah Winfrey are rarely released, but they immediately catch the viewer. So, in recent years, quite rating pictures The Obnoxious Henry (2012), Butler (2013), Selma (2014) have been released.

The TV presenter has been married for over 20 years, however, due to her first fatal pregnancy at an early age, she can no longer have children.
