Taking a walk on the wild side!
Oprah Winfrey is taking “brave” to a whole new level posing with a lion on the cover of her publication, O Magazine’s January issue. In the latest issue of the magazine, Oprah is seen posing with a lion on the cover of “O”.
Speaking on the shoot, the show host admitted; “I can honestly say I’ve never done this before,” Oprah said as she reclined next to George DeLacy, a member of the set-design team, who gamely posed in a full lion costume. In the end, the 500-pound cat wasn’t the only thing the crew had to wrangle. “Make sure the left breast is out of sight,” Oprah said after narrowly avoiding a wardrobe malfunction in her low-cut Marc Bouwer gown.
You might wonder how the team managed to bring some calm as Oprah posed with the 10-year-old beast. Well, she didn’t! According to Huffington Post, ‘For safety’s sake, Beast was photographed the previous day and his caretaker was on site to ensure every aspect of his care was attended to.’

Why she shot the cover with a lion:
Text“We’re calling 2015 a ‘Brave New Year’ which is why I’m shooting for the first time with a lion on the cover of O Magazine, in hopes that this bold image will give you the courage to live the life of your dreams.”Oprah
