 Whoopi Goldberg spills major secret to her succesful career in Hollywood


Whoopi Goldberg has shared the cornerstone of her enduring success in Hollywood, spanning several decades and countless memorable roles. Known for her vibrant personality and distinctive talent, Goldberg has become a staple in the entertainment industry.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Whoopi, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming memoir, Bits and Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me out on May 7, revealed, “I have to say, the same attitude I had in my forties, I have in my sixties… I give zero you-know-whats.” “If I don’t want to do it, I’m okay with walking away. Pick your battles and then fight those,” stated the Sister Act actress.

“Most of the time I think, ‘Well, you don’t know me well enough to dislike me,” she told the outlet. Whoopi mentioned, “You dislike aspects of me, but you don’t know me to dislike me, so I’m not going to sweat it.” “Now you may ask why you would do something like Reading Rainbow. I mean, you’re not making any money,” she continued. Whoopi pointed out, “What is the pull? I can tell you why it was for me because I’m dyslexic. So I learned to read long after I should’ve. Reading opens everything.” In the end, the actress added, “I’m so glad I got here.”

Goldberg first captured the public’s imagination with her heart-wrenching portrayal of Celie in the 1985 drama “The Color Purple,” a role that catapulted her into the spotlight and earned her critical acclaim. She further solidified her status as a Hollywood luminary with her Oscar-winning performance as the quirky psychic Oda Mae Brown in the 1990 hit film “Ghost.” These roles not only showcased her versatile acting skills but also her ability to deeply connect with audiences.

Beyond her notable film achievements, Goldberg has also made significant contributions to television. She appeared in the season 11 episode of the beloved children’s series “Reading Rainbow,” in an episode titled “Amazing Grace.” This appearance underscored her commitment to reaching audiences of all ages and her belief in the power of storytelling.

In the recent documentary “Butterfly in the Sky,” which focuses on the impact of “Reading Rainbow,” Goldberg opened up about her decision to participate in the children’s show. She expressed how important it is to engage with young audiences and contribute to educational efforts. This documentary gave her a platform to discuss her involvement in children’s television, an often-overlooked aspect of her career that she holds dear.

Goldberg’s revelation about the secrets behind her long-standing career highlights a mix of a passion for acting and a commitment to impactful roles that resonate with viewers across generations. Her willingness to embrace both serious and light-hearted roles, while also dedicating time to educational content for children, illustrates the breadth of her influence in the industry.

Her participation in “Butterfly in the Sky” also allowed fans and critics alike to see another side of her career, one that emphasizes her role as an educator and advocate for literacy and learning through entertainment. It’s clear that Goldberg’s success is not just the result of her acting skills, but also her broader vision for her platform and her dedication to making a difference, both on and off the screen.
