Oprah Winfrey Joins ‘Selfie’ Craze, Reveals This A-Lister Was Her First!
Oprah Winfrey is a talk show host, producer, author, actress, and one of the best in the magazine biz, but when it came to joining the “selfie” craze on social media, the TV pioneer admitted, “I really don't do selfies,” but said her favorite selfie is the one she took for the June cover of O magazine.

During the photo shoot for the upcoming issue, Oprah recalled her first selfie at last year's 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards with Hollywood hottie Idris Elba.
“I'd never done a selfie before, but I thought 'Idris Elba is sitting behind me, I should take this picture,' and I did, but I think my thumb is in part of it and so is half my face and half of his. It wasn't a very good one.”
Selfies may not be Oprah's thing, but a lot of people want to take selfies with her. “Now, instead of autographs, people ask for selfies. They've replaced 'hello.' Rather than people even saying hello, they say, 'Can I have a selfie?'”
