Oprah Winfrey - Oprah Winfrey Gave Inspirational Speech To Lindsay Lohan

Oprah Winfrey gave an inspirational speech to Lindsay Lohan after interviewing the troubled actress for an upcoming Tv special.

The Mean Girls star recently completed a court-ordered 90-day stint in rehab and she sat down for a candid Tv chat with Winfrey to discuss her recent problems in an episode of Oprah's Next Chapter.

The pre-recorded interview will air in America later this month (18Aug13), and Winfrey has now revealed she took the actress aside for an off-camera chat about her issues.

Speaking during a press junket for upcoming movie The Butler, Winfrey told Access Hollywood, "I had a real conversation with her afterwards, saying, 'Look, the reason why I'm doing this, obviously it's going to be on television, and obviously you chose to say yes, or wanted to do this for your reasons, obviously you want people to watch this, but in the end, it's about your life. I want you to win.' That's what I said to her... 'I want you to win.'"

Winfrey adds of her decision to interview Lohan, "All the people who take issue (and say), 'Why are you (interviewing) her?' I think she's an interesting figure of our culture right now. I think that lots of people make mistakes in their lives. We, as human beings, I think, cannot stand in judgment of how many chances you get. I think the arc of trying to reorganise, reshape and rebuild your career and your life... it's a really interesting story, if you can pull that off."

The media mogul is also convinced Lohan has the potential to turn her life around: "I absolutely think it's possible for her to do that, and I want her to win."
