Who runs the world? These girls! See which Hollywood power women, including Angelina Jolie, Beyonce and Oprah Winfrey, became star influencers by raking in box office bucks, building a business empire and filling their trophy cases with Oscars and Emmys
After 25 years running The Oprah Winfrey Show, her OWN Network and a magazine, Winfrey doesn't count material wealth as her crowning achievement. Instead, Winfrey penned in O that she is most proud of "never shutting my heart down" despite sexual abuse, an unplanned pregnancy and endless scrutiny over her weight. "I stayed open to believing that no matter how hard the climb, there is always a way to let in a sliver of light to illuminate the path forward," she wrote in January 2014.
