Queen Latifah is getting ready for her new daytime talk show debut, but there's one viewers shouldn't expect to hear the actress talking about: her love life.

Latifah, whose new show launches on Sept. 16, is working alongside Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and says that unlike the famous couple, she will be keeping her personal life private.

"I don't feel the need to discuss my private life on this show or on any show," she said to The Hollywood Reporter.

"There's the part of my life that the public and I share together. And there's the part that's mine to keep for myself. And that's mine. For me."

So while the future host is ready to be in the homes of millions in just a few short weeks, it seems like she's making sure her boundaries are clearly defined.

And it looks like Latifah already has a fan in her Chicago costar Renée Zellweger.

"It's impossible not to have immediate affection and respect for her," the blond actress said.

"Not just for all she's accomplished as a multimedia talent and for her contributions as a performer who redefined opportunities for women in hip-hop, but that she lives with such optimism, generosity and fearlessness."

Wow—talk about a rave review!
