When Oprah took her show to the Big Apple in 2009, Tyler made a brief appearance from the Toronto Film Festival where he was supporting Precious, which went to receive six Oscar® nominations. Gayle King caught up with Tyler Perry and Oprah, executive producers of Precious, on the red carpet.

When Gayle asked Tyler if he thought the film had universal appeal, he said, "I certainly do. Everybody understands pain. Everybody understands triumph, no matter what race."
