Hollywood's Most Powerful Women of 2014

Oprah Winfrey

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.
