Oprah Winfrey has given Beyonce's forthcoming documentary, "Life Is But A Dream," her stamp of approval. Speaking out Wednesday, Winfrey expressed that she was not only "shocked," but impressed with how much information Beyonce shared.
"This "Life Is But A Dream" is fiercely empowering. It is entertaining. Everybody would have wanted to have her on their network. She has had access to herself that nobody else would have had. So she's one of the greatest executive producers I must say," Oprah shared with HLN Wednesday. "She opened herself up. She let us see her vulnerable side. She became not just this mythical goddess, but she became a real woman to me."
Slated to premiere Saturday, Feb. 16, "Life Is But A Dream" follows Beyonce in ways fans have not seen before. She discusses personal struggles, including a miscarriage, and her relationship with husband and recording artist Sean Carter.
Looking back at what she saw and felt, Oprah says fans will be able to truly connect with Beyonce after watching this documentary.
"She shocked me. I was in tears. She did an amazing job. People are going to be amazed," Oprah shared. "What's going to happen now is people are going to feel a connection to her that they didn't feel before because she shows us how real she is."
Humanizing Beyonce even more, Oprah added "the way she hurts is the same way other people hurt."
