Oprah's lips are sealed when it comes to discussing her recent holiday in Tahiti with Barack and Michelle Obama.The 63-year-old was quizzed about the getaway at the New York premiere of her new film The Immoral Life of Henrietta Lacks, but the talk show queen refused to spill any secrets.

"This is the deal, what happens on the boat stays on the boat," the media mogul quipped to Extra  about her time on a yacht with the Obamas. Oprah wasn't dishing up any details on the former president and his wife, but she did gush over fellow vacationers Tom Hanks  and Bruce Springsteen.

"There were conversations all the time, that’s all we did was talk," said the two-time Oscar nominee, adding that everyone on board had a blast enjoying everything yachting had to offer. "There was a lot of paddle boarding, snorkeling, jet skiing, lots of good stuff."

When it came to water activities, Oprah did admit that she was more of a spectator than a reveller, saying, "I'm not really good with the ocean. Me and the ocean don't get along too good."


Barack and Michelle have been having the time of their lives since leaving the White House in January. Following the inauguration of Donald Trump, the parents of two spent some time with family and friends in Palm Springs before jetting off to the British Virgin Islands for some fun in the sun at Richard Branson's exclusive Necker Island resort.
