    UPDATE: An OWN spokesperson told E! News that while Oprah Winfrey did spend time with Rita Ora and Naomi Campbell, she did not discuss Fifty Shades of Grey.

    Who knew Fifty Shades of Grey was one of Oprah Winfrey's favorite things?!

    Well, at The Weinstein Co.'s post-BAFTA party Sunday at Rosewood London, the 60-year-old media mogul revealed that her Inner Goddess will be delighted next year when Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson bring E.L. James' S&M-loving leads to life on the big screen.

    "I know Rita [Ora] and I know Fifty Shades of Grey—and I just can't wait for the movie," she reportedly said, per The Sun. "I've read the book and I just hope the movie is filthier than the book. Less talking, more action!" Oh my.

    Even though the film doesn't hit theaters until Valentine's Day 2015, Oprah might get a few secrets from the set via 23-year-old Ora, who plays Mia Grey, the adopted younger sister of Christian (Dornan) in the flick. O was hanging out with the "I Will Never Let You Down" singer Sunday, along with Naomi Campbell and Georgina Chapman.

    So will Ms. Winfrey's wish for a raunchier Fifty Shades movie come true? Producer Dana Brunetti told Collider this past November the film "obviously" has to have an R-rating, but he's hoping to have "an NC-17 version that we released a few weeks later," too.

    "So everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then have that NC-17 version out there as well," he explained. "What we're kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty, they want it as close as possible [to the book].  We want to keep it elevated, but also give the fans what they want."

    Certainly, and now that Oprah is out as a Fifty Shades fan, this movie better be really good—or bad, depending on how you look at it.
