Oprah Winfrey Attended ‘Speed-the-Plow’ in Support of Lindsay Lohan
Oprah Winfrey headed to London to support Lindsay Lohan at a performance of Speed-the-Plow.
The media mogul, who mentored Lohan last year and gave the actress her own reality TV series, jetted to the British capital to show her support as Lohan made her West End debut in David Mamet’s satire.
Winfrey attended a performance of the show at the Playhouse Theatre on Saturday night along with 12 Years A Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o.
Lohan posted a picture on her Instagram page showing herself posing backstage with Winfrey, adding in the caption, “The definition of a blessing. Thank you @oprah and @Lupita_Nyongo for seeing the show tonight (sic). Love you xx.”
The definition of a blessing. Thank you @oprah and @Lupita_Nyongo for seeing the show tonight. Love you xx
She also took to Twitter to thank the stars for their support and she described Winfrey as her “fairy godmother”.
