'My guilty pleasure is doing nothing'
I don’t know anyone happier. I don’t know anyone who has a better life, or had a better life. I look at other people, they look happy. But not as happy as me
Los Angeles: Talk show host Oprah Winfrey said she loves doing "nothing" when she has some time off work.
The 64-year-old media mogul said she does not know anyone who is happier than her.
"I don't know anyone happier. I don't know anyone who has a better life, or had a better life. I look at other people and I think, they look happy. But not as happy as me."
"I can go weeks and never turn on a television. I've gone a summer not having it on. No, my guilty pleasure is, I do nothing. I live in a very beautiful space that I created," she said.
"Every time I leave home and I'm driving out the back with the pond and the ducks, and I'm looking at the grass and I see the house on the hill, I have this moment where I think about when Dorothy says in 'The Wizard of Oz', 'I learnt I didn't have to look further than my own back yard.' Every time I think of that," Winfrey told Vogue magazine.
A Wrinkle In Time actor said she is one of the lucky ones who knows what makes her happy.
"Most people don't even know what makes them happy. But I can just sit on my porch and I'll start reading a book and then realise, OK, I'm not reading any more. I can just take it all in. I can just be," she said.
