"Lee Daniels' The Butler" is inspired by the real-life story of a man who served as the butler to eight U.S. presidents. It also marks Oprah Winfrey's first film in 15 years. Anderson spoke to her and co-star Forest Whitaker. Oprah says one of the reasons she chose this film as her big screen return is its backdrop of America's civil rights movement.
