Oprah Winfrey David Letterman Interview: Talk Show Legend Discusses 'The Butler', Safaris, Meditation & More [VIDEO]

Talk show legend Oprah Winfrey made a rare appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman Thursday night.

The interview began with Winfrey, who discussed a recent safari she went on. A clip was shown of an elephant approaching her vehicle.

The pair then talked about Winfrey's new movie, Lee Daniels' The Butler, and discussed why it was important to be reminded of the struggles America has faced over the past 60 years with civil rights and racism.

Winfrey then explained how meditation has helped her and what she does to find clarity in her mind.

"I brought meditation to my whole company just before I ended, like in 2010, because it makes for a better environment when everybody is focused and of one mind and doing well," she said.

"You need to find something, and it doesn't matter what you call it, if it's just sitting and being still, if it's reflecting, if it's, you know, hugging your children, hugging your dogs, giving some time to that. It's all good," Oprah added.

Winfrey gleefully asked Letterman, "Aren't you pleased at how we've grown?" to which Letterman nodded his head and flatly responded, "Uh huh," causing her to laugh out loud.

 "The last time I was here I was so nervous and then you were so nice to me," Winfrey said, which Letterman said was his fault. Winfrey told him not to worry about it. Winfrey last appeared on the late night show in 2005 to promote the Broadway production of The Color Purple.

The interview concluded with Winfrey talking about why she invests in young girls in third world countries rather than young boys. She explained that girls are much more likely to give back to their communities while boys usually just buy toys and things for themselves.
