Ava DuVernay Explains Why Working With Oprah Winfrey Was A ‘Full-Circle Moment’ She ‘Never Imagined’

Working with Oprah Winfrey in Hollywood was a meaningful experience for Ava DuVernay. “Growing up, my mother would always say, ‘Look at her,’ and ‘Be like her’ … So to grow up and be working in the same industry as her, to know her personally, it’s a full-circle moment that I never imagined,” she told Access Hollywood’s Zuri Hall. Ava also broke down her new social experiment, “Home Sweet Home,” which follows families swapping homes and lives. “Home Sweet Home” premieres Oct. 15 at 8/7c on NBC.
