Oprah Admits 'Beloved' Failure Sent Her into Mac-and-Cheese Tailspin

Watch a preview of her upcoming interview with Piers Morgan.

Oprah Winfrey's biggest failure? Her 1998 adaptation of Toni Morrison's Beloved.

That’s what she tells Piers Morgan in their Jan. 17 interview, according to a preview CNN has posted on its Web site (see video, above).
 
When the movie (which she produced and starred in) flopped critically and commercially, it "sent me into a massive, depressive, macaroni and cheese eating tailspin,” she tells him.
 
She says it was "the only time in my life I was ever depressed. And I recognized, 'I am depressed'...where you feel like you're behind a veil."
