5+ Celebs That Can't Stand Oprah (And 5+ Who Adore Her)

We may all adore her, want to be on her show and some may even want to be her, but there are others out there who aren't all that fond of the billionaire talk-show host.

Let's check out the people who adore her, and the people who don't!

ADORE: Gayle King

These two have been friends for years.

In fact, apparently the two stars have known each other since their 20s! I think it's safe to say that these two are BFFs.

CAN'T STAND: Ludacris


He doesn't like her because of his appearance on her show:

"Of course, it's her show, but we were doing a show on racial discrimination, and she gave me a hard time as a rapper when I came on there as an actor. It was like being at someone's house who doesn't really want you there."

ADORE: John Travolta


In his own words:

"To the most wonderful person in the world, Oprah Winfrey, our friend... You care. Your intelligence, your inspiration, and you do it all without judging, and because you treat everyone equally important, and this makes you a great American hero."


This beef has to do with a show Oprah did back in 2009 when she interviewed a man who allegedly sexually assaulted Mo'Nique.

The actress was not happy that her mother and father were in the audience for that interview.

ADORE: Reese Witherspoon

Yes! The actress has talked very publically about how she loves the talk show host, and can we really blame her?

She is Oprah, after all, it's hard not to love her.

CAN'T STAND: David Letterman


There was a time when David Letterman was hated by Oprah, and he thinks it's because he pulled a prank on her back in 1995.

Not only that, but he made a joke at her expense during the Oscars.

ADORE: Tom Hanks

The legendary actor has told many stories on talk shows about hanging out with not just Oprah, but the Obamas as well!

Man, this guy is in good, no, great company!

CAN'T STAND: 50 Cent

Apparently, fiddy thinks Oprah is targeting black men:

"I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men. No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this [stuff] is sad."

ADORE: Ellen DeGeneres

You'd think these two talk show hosts would have a rivalry, but nope! In fact, they usually take time out of their days to defend and compliment each other!

What a nice pair!

CAN'T STAND: Angelina Jolie


Apparently the beef between Angelina and Oprah started back when Angelina would not help the talk show host launch her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.


ADORE: Jimmy Kimmel

YouTube | Jimmy Kimmel Live

The two talk show hosts have a very good relationship:

"She's really just a person who lights the whole building up. It kind of amazes me... I love her! I really do."

This self-described "lowlife" once tweeted:

"My people tried to get me to do the Oprah Winfrey show years ago and her people wanted me to write down 5 reasons why I loved her and her show. I said [expletive] that and her. End of story.”

ADORE: Dwayne Johnson

Between starring in a Super Bowl commercial together, and appearing a few times together for interviews, there is no bad blood between these two celebs.

They even toasted to his late father, together.

There will be no kisses from a rose for Oprah because Seal thinks she's a bit of a hypocrite.

Mostly because she used to hang out with Harvey Weinstein back in the day.

ADORE: Roseanne Barr


She has a positive attitude towards the talk show host. In her own words:

"Oprah, I really do admire and love you for all the good you do and have done in this country and the world at large."

CAN'T STAND: Rachel Ray

The cooking show host apparently has quite the problem with Oprah Winfrey.

She allegedly has blasted her in private a couple of times, even though her camp has denied it.

ADORE: Jonathan Franzen

Sure, they may have started off in a bad way, when Franzen blasted Oprah's book club, but in recent years Franzen has come around to the media mogul.

And we hear she has come around to him as well.

CAN'T STAND: Janet Jackson

The Jackson family has a lot of issues with Oprah, mostly because of the way she has treated the pop star over the years.

Janet was especially irked after Oprah brought the King Of Pop's kids on her show after his death.

ADORE: Stedman Graham

It's easy to say that Stedman Graham probably loves Oprah Winfrey. Why? Well, the two of them have been spiritual partners/boyfriend and girlfriend since 1986.

How is he a celebrity? Well, he's married to Oprah.


Ice Cube doesn't like Oprah because he feels excluded. Every time he's in a project she's covering, he's never invited to the show.

"She's had damn rapists, child molesters and lying authors on her show. And if I'm not a rags-to-riches story for her, who is?"

ADORE: Meryl Streep

The actress once said about the ex talk-show host:

"I want her to run for president. I don't think she had any intention [of declaring]. But now she doesn't have a choice."

CAN'T STAND: Chris Brown

They were friends until Chris Brown's notorious incident with Rihanna.

He actually expected her to have his back on that one, and she definitely didn't want to go down that route.

ADORE: Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr

This one is pretty easy to believe, considering the good reverend is always at events that are commemorating big moments in Winfrey's life.

He too has endorsed her for President.
