Oprah Winfrey set out to become a fourth grade teacher - and insists she would have been very happy if her career had taken her into education.
During newsman Piers Morgan's first CNN chat show, the multi-media queen revealed she never set out to become a superstar - she just wanted to teach. And then powerful forces took over.
Winfrey told the Brit, "If I had been what I thought I was gonna be and that is a great fourth grade teacher, I would have also liked that.
"At the core of me I am a teacher and I am happiest when I feel that people are getting something, learning something, enhancing themselves in a way that they never thought of before."
