Oprah Winfrey is still the most influential celebrity in America according to Forbes.
At 59, Oprah has achieved what many women wish to achieve in their 60′s and still is going strong. She has managed to beat Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood, Barbara Walters and Suze Orman. 48 percent of the people surveyed rated Winfrey as influential.
Winfrey ended her daily “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in May 2011 after 25 years to launch the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), which features lifestyle programming aimed at women.
Four directors, including Ron Howard and Martin Scorsese were among the Top 10. E-Poll Chief Executive Gerry Philpott said, in reference to Spielberg said, “To this day, ask anyone what they think about before going in the ocean,” referring to the filmmaker’s 1975 blockbuster “Jaws.”
