OPRAH'S NEW STYLE MEANS A CHANGE IN ATTITUDE, TOO

If some people have a hard time accepting the new Oprah Winfrey, tough.

"In your 20s and 30s you are always struggling to be open to what other people see as their vision for you," the television talk show host says in People magazine's Sept. 12 issue. But people reach the point where they don't accept as much of that as they used to, she said.Along with her new, svelte look, the 40-year-old Winfrey changed her attitude: She made a last-minute decision to back out of a big book deal, and she's also put a hold on her marriage to longtime boyfriend, Stedman Graham.

Does that mean putting off kids, too?

"For right now I feel I can make greater contributions to the world's children. What it takes one-on-one, I don't have," she told the magazine.
