If you're wondering by Winfrey didn't address the rampant speculation on Twitter, it's because she's not a fan of the platform, unlike our current president, Donald Trump.
"I try not to lean into the hysteria," she said. "I've heard a lot of Twitter chatter when people have said, 'Where are you? You should be speaking up on these things.' But it makes no sense to speak when you cannot be heard. One hundred and forty characters -- that is not how you want to make your mark in the world."
And Winfrey feels like her way of making a mark at the moment is by giving voices to those who have been silenced for so long.
"Everything that's happened has brought us to this point in time. We've been working our way through a lot of repressed pain, anger, shame and disappointment," she said. "And we weren't honoring our own voices. Now we're here and it took Harvey Weinstein to burst that door wide open. But Harvey wasn't the first one. It was Bill Cosby before him, and Bill O'Reilly before him. It's just fascinating to me because I always try to look at things from thousands of feet above."
Winfrey concluded hoping that women all over the world will be inspired by the numerous actresses who have stepped forward with their own personal stories of sexual harassment, abuse and even rape in the workplace.
"It has seared into the consciousness -- a level of awareness -- that was not there before. That's the most important thing to me," she said. "When Reese Witherspoon can tell her story at the same time as a farm worker in Iowa or a factory worker in Alabama, it says to a person, 'Oh well, I've been putting up with that asshole supervisor for all these years. Maybe it's time for me to do something too."
