Oprah Winfrey Posts A Strange New Photo From Set Of Lee Daniels' The Butler

It was thanks to Oprah Winfrey's Instagram feed that we got our first ever look at Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda in the upcoming Lee Daniels film The Butler, and now she's at it again, only this time her shot parner has changed.

While the first photo the actress took had her standing with the director and Ronald and Nancy Reagan, the newest features Winfrey with Terrence Howard, who sadly doesn't play a notable historic person in the movie (instead playing a character named Howard). That said, the picture is interesting just because of the insane look of Winfrey's face and the caption that reads

"And THAT's a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in our goodbye"love scene". Thanks Lee Daniels for the great experience. #theButler"

Check out the image below:

Based on true events, The Butler tells the story of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a man who served as the White House butler hunder eight different American presidents. The film follows the man through decades of social and political change while also focusing on him as a person and a family man. The all-star ensemble cast includes Robin Williams (Dwight D. Eisenhower), James Marsden (John F. Kennedy), Liev Schrieber (Lyndon B. Johnson), John Cusack (Richard Nixon), Alan Rickman (Ronald Reagan), Melissa Leo, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jane Fonda, Terrence Howard, Vanessa Redgrave, Mariah Carey, David Oyelowo, Alex Pettyfer and Jesse Williams. The Weinstein Company recently picked up the rights to distribute the movie in the United States, though a release date has not yet been announced.
