LOS ANGELES: She hasn’t yet turned 15 but child star Storm Reid is wise enough to have picked up some life lessons already — the most important of them from Oprah Winfrey.
The talk show legend and media tycoon became a mentor for the Atlanta-born newcomer on the set of Disney sci-fi fantasy “A Wrinkle in Time,” which came out in March.
“She said, ‘Don’t waste energy on things you can’t change in life when you could be using that energy on something else positive.’ It’s my life motto,” Reid told AFP.
Speaking on the red carpet at the MTV Movie and Television Awards in Los Angeles, Reid said she “fangirled a lot” when she met Winfrey.
Unkind critics might point out that Oprah’s advice would work well in the case of “Wrinkle,” which was panned by critics and made losses estimated at up to $186 million.
