Oprah Winfrey Hands Out Juicers At A Wrinkle In Time Wrap Party
Oprah Winfrey surprised her A Wrinkle in Time cast and crew mates at their wrap party by gifting them all with a $400 juice machine. The media mogul and actress decided to treat director Ava DuVernay and co-stars like Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Mindy Kaling to the juicer she has fallen in love with by giving them away as they all celebrated the end of filming over the weekend.
Oprah, who was famed for giving away elaborate gifts like cars during her time as a TV talk show host, shared video footage of her surprise giveaway on Instagram, and captioned it, “The Wrap gift that keeps giving… To your Health and Happiness! Thanks.”
In the clip, the 63-year-old Weight Watchers spokesperson and shareholder is featured leading a toast onstage with a glass of green juice in her hand as she says, “Here’s to A Wrinkle in Time!
“I also wanted to tell you that there’s this great juicing machine that makes these fresh-pressed juices…,” she continues. “Here’s the deal, everybody. I have one, and now… You. All. Will. Have. One. Every morning, when juice comes out, think of A Wrinkle in Time.”
The video ends with Oprah unveiling a stack of the Juicero appliances as her colleagues cheer in excitement.
The project, an adaptation of author Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 fantasy novel, reunites Winfrey with her Selma filmmaker DuVernay, who cast Oprah as Mrs. Which, the leader of a trio of mysterious women who send the teen protagonists on their way through time and space as they embark on a mission to find their missing scientist father.
A Wrinkle in Time is set for release in April, 2018.
