Oprah Winfrey Says She Never Had Children Because They 'Would Hate Me'

Oprah Winfrey says she's content with the fact that she doesn't have children.

"If I had kids, my kids would hate me," the 59-year-old Winfrey tells THR in an in-depth interview. "They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something in my life would have had to suffer and it would've probably been them."

Winfrey says she just never aspired to be a mother and has accepted with the fact that her "eggs are dying on the shelf."

"Gayle (best friend Gayle King) was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade home ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children," Winfrey explains. "While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King."

But Oprah says she fills the void by helping youngsters at her charity, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

She begins her day at 7:30 AM by responding to emails from those students who need a little help.

"I'm responding to everything from 'I'm feeling lost' to 'I need advice about a boy,'" she says.

Winfrey, who was the first African-American female billionaire, earned a Screen Actors Guild nomination on Wednesday for her role in Lee Daniels' 'The Butler'.
