In the interview Oprah explains her reasoning for pulling her name off of the Russell Simmons documentary that she was executive producing. Explaining that she pulled her name from the documentary because changes were not made that she felt should have been. Oprah stated that she asked producers to pull the documentary from Sundance until they were able to make the changes or else she would be taking her name off.
Oprah stated she is still learning lessons even after being in the entertainment industry for so long. Expressing that this documentary taught her to not put her name on anything that she does not have creative control of.
