Oprah Winfrey may be one of the richest people, but that doesn't mean she's ready to run the country. In a new interview, the media mogul firmly revealed that she'll never run for president, finally putting those political rumors to rest.
"I will never run for public office," Oprah, 63. confessed during The Hollywood Reporter's "Awards Chatter" podcast. "That's a pretty definitive thing."

Every time I do it there's a level of anxiety and fear I have to wrestle with for myself."
