Oprah: When Halle first [interviewed on The Oprah Winfrey Show] about 15 years ago...I went into the green room and I gave [her a copy of Their Eyes Were Watching God] and I said, "Read this book because one day, I'm going to be able to make this a movie." And then Halle won the Oscar® ...and I said "I'd better lock this in!" I called you up the day after, right?
Halle: You did. I was thrilled. When you asked me, I was probably happier than you were, that I was given a chance.
Oprah: Even the day after the Oscars®?
Halle: You know what, Oprah, you always make dreams come true. ... Even before this year when it became about dreams, you always, just with your show, your presence, you say the right thing; help people in so many ways. So to be a part of something that meant so much to you really meant the most to me!
