Maybe Oprah Winfrey thought the gift of friendship was enough?
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday, How to Get Away With Murder's Viola Davis revealed that her friend didn't give her a gift when she and Julius Tennon renewed their vows over Valentine's Day weekend. "Oprah was there! My cast members were there. I was there!" she said with a laugh. "Oprah had a fabulous time. She came with Stedman [Graham]."
Given that Oprah is kind of a living legend, host Jimmy Kimmel asked, "Were you nervous that she would have a good time? Did you have somebody assigned to her to make sure that she enjoyed herself?" Viola made a funny face and told him no. In fact, she recalled, "I sat down with Oprah...She was very, very chill. She looked cute. Everybody had to wear white. I'll tell you, the one person who definitely not fazed by Oprah was my daughter [Genesis Tennon, 4]. There's a picture of her and Oprah where she's just [pouting]…Everybody was just super chill."
"Did Oprah get you anything?" Jimmy asked. "Were gifts accepted at this thing?" Viola clearly did not want to call her friend out on national television, but she did not want to lie, either. "Oprah did not get me a gift," she said. "But you know what? I didn't ask her to give me a gift."
