The Oscar recipient has also never walked down the aisle. She and partner Stedman Graham have been together since 1986. While they were once engaged, Winfrey and Graham, 62, apparently never tied the knot.

“I’m not a traditional woman and I haven’t had a traditional life,” Winfrey said, in an interview for British talk show “Lorraine” in November.

“I think that had Stedman and I gotten married, we certainly wouldn’t have stayed married.”

In her own way, the Oscar-nominated “Color Purple” actress is still a mother. Winfrey takes care of nearly two hundred girls attending her Leadership Academy for Girls, the school she opened in South Africa in 2007. She frequently begins her day responding to their emails and travels to South Africa twice a year for visits.

“I’m responding to everything from ‘I’m feeling lost’ to ‘I need advice about a boy,'” she told THR.
