NEW YORK (AP) — Oprah Winfrey says her worst career moment was the box-office failure of her movie "Beloved." It sent her into what she calls a "macaroni-and-cheese-eating tailspin."
Winfrey starred as a former slave in the 1998 film based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The movie had the misfortune to open the same weekend as the slasher film, "Bride of Chucky."
"Beloved" was a flop.
Winfrey says she told her chef to make some mac-and-cheese to help her cope.
Asked how much, Winfrey says with a laugh, "About 30 pounds' worth."
The interview airs on "Piers Morgan Tonight," premiering Monday at 9 p.m. Eastern.
