Oprah Winfrey refused to get ''buck naked'' in American fictionalised drama, The Butler.

The 59-year-old actress, who plays Gloria, the butler's wife in the movie, was adamant she wasn't going to bare her flesh in a romantic scene with her co-star Terrence Howard.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, Oprah said: ''You know, he [Daniels] would have had me buck naked on that sofa if I had let him.

''He did more screaming than I did - I'm not a screamer.''

Winfrey added that she wasn't keen on her character flirting with the man next door, saying: ''If she's going to roll around in bed in the middle of the afternoon, then it would be a lie, a fake thing.''
