Oprah Winfrey has confessed that she is afraid that her new flick, The Butler, would be another embarrassment for her.

The 59-year-old TV personality would be returning to the big screen after her 1998 flop, Beloved. Winfrey said that she mourned for a long time after her last flick could only cash 13.5 million pounds despite its 51-million-pound budget, the Daily Express reported.

She said that the thought about acting again scared her a lot and she said to Lee Daniels, the director of, The Butler, that she didn't want to embarrass herself.

Winfrey added that when someone has a big so-called failure, it proves to be a lesson for the future and she has to make sure the impact doesn't happen again.
