Oprah Reveals Her Biggest Failure

Posted: Updated:

CNN released a preview clip of Piers Morgan's upcoming interview with Oprah. In it, Morgan asked Oprah what the biggest failure in her life had been.

Oprah said that her biggest failure was the 1998 adaptation of Toni Morrison's "Beloved," which she produced and starred in. She said that its failure at the box office "sent me into a massive, depressive, macaroni and cheese eating tailspin."

It was, she told Morgan, "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."

Oprah also told Morgan the lessons she learned from the depression.
