IN HAPPIER TIMES
We’re dying to find out what on earth Steven Spielberg DID – or didn’t do – to get Oprah’s goat. And did Tom Cruise have anything to do with it? The two moguls have been best pals for years – every since Spielberg gave Oprah her big acting break in The Color Purple. Nowadays there’s such bad blood between them that you won’t even catch them in the same room together and Oprah will NOT talk about it. Many of Oprah’s celebrity pals showed up for the premier of her play The Color Purple. Not Steven. Recently Spielberg was honored at the Chicago Film Festival with a Lifetime Achievement Award and many stars flew in from LA, but Oprah , who lives in Chicago, couldn’t be bothered. She refused to attend or participate – fueling rumors about this secret feud.
