Oprah Winfrey battled with director Lee Daniels about a steamy scene in his upcoming movie The Butler when he suggested she strip off.

The iconic Tv show host and actress revealed that if the filmmaker had his way, she would have been a lot less covered in her scene with actor Terrence Howard.

She explains, "If Lee Daniels had his way I would have been sitting there in my bra and panties on the couch and you know we had a lot of arguments about that because I was saying, 'You know, in the 60s she just wouldn't be sitting there like that, she just wouldn't be sitting there in the middle of the day in her underwear.'"
