*Oprah doesn’t know the meaning of rest, stop or slow down. She’s stoking the flame of her thespian spirit and wants to get back to acting.

The 57-year-old former talk show diva is planning to return to the big screen. She last starred in 1998’s “Beloved.”

“For years, I couldn’t do it …,” Winfrey said to Variety. “If a film comes along that I feel really speaks to me, I would do it … I am the most relaxed I have ever been in my life doing a film because it’s the only real vacation I get [and] I no longer have to be myself … I just love the opportunity to submerge into somebody else’s life and not to have to deal with my own for a while,” she added.

She’s been talking to good friend Tyler Perry, Lee Daniels and Jonathan Demme about some potential roles.

Right now she’s working on a project about the inner workings of a home shopping channel with Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock.

The big screen is not the only thing on Winfrey’s mind. She’s also been talking about starring in a stage production.
