Keenen Ivory Wayans To Oprah: 'I Don't Control Things' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The Wayans family has long been known for their comedic timing, sense of humor and effortless ability to make audiences laugh. But when Keenen Ivory Wayans and other members of the Wayans family -- Kim, Shawn, Marlon, Damon Jr., Damien Dante and Craig -- sat down with Oprah for an upcoming episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” Keenen revealed his reflective side.

The clip begins with Oprah asking whether or not Keenen has always been philosophical, and after first giving her a witty rejoinder -- “I’ve been watching '[Oprah's] Lifeclass'!” -- the actor/director gets serious.

“You go through life thinking that you control everything,” he says. “Then, there comes this time that you realize you don’t control anything. I feel that I’ve become a better person and better to all the people around me because I realize I don’t control things.”

"Oprah's Next Chapter" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.
