Posted on August 6, 2012 /Film


The talented Oprah Winfrey is undergoing an extensive special effects make-up application for her latest film, The Butler. The reporter-turned-actress shared photos on twitter capturing the lengthy process. However, photos of the final product haven’t hit the web until recently.

In the new film, Winfrey plays Gloria Gaines, the wife of a White House butler who served eight different U.S. presidents. Winfrey plays the same character over a three decade time frame.

While Winfrey has lent her voice to projects including Bee Movie and The Princess and the Frog, The Butler marks her first on-screen acting role since 1998′s Beloved.

Check out the big O’s amazing transformation below.
