Los Angeles: Actress-talk show host Oprah Winfrey reveals she battled with director Lee Daniels over a steamy scene in his upcoming movie `The Butler`, after he suggested her to strip off.

The 59-year-old says had gone with the filmmaker`s decision, she would have been a lot less covered in her scene with actor Terrence Howard in the film, reports contactmusic.com.

Winfrey said: "If Lee Daniels had his way I would have been sitting there in my b*a and p*****s on the couch and you know we had a lot of arguments about that because I was saying, `You know, in the 1960s she just wouldn`t be sitting there like that, she just wouldn`t be sitting there in the middle of the day in her underwear.`"
