Today, Oprah joined fellow luminaries Ben Bradlee, Bill Clinton, Gloria Steinem and more at the White House as they received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The award is the highest honor the nation can give a civilian.
During the event, President Obama spoke about Oprah's previous employers advising her to change her name to Susie to seem more relatable to television audiences, and joked that he had gotten similar advice. The White House also posted a tweet about Oprah's impact on millions of people:
Later that night, Oprah showed off her new medal with Stedman at the Medal of Freedom dinner.
Backstage at The Jonathan Ross Show in London, Oprah happened across a quintet of well-coiffed guys—the English-Irish pop group One Direction! She shared her encounter on Instagram and Twitter.
