As one Lee Daniels movie opens this weekend with "The Paperboy," the busy director is wrapping his next feature effort, "The Butler," and Oprah Winfrey has documented the occasion.

The talk show icon and media mogul is apparently an Instagram fan (or her assistant is, anyway) and she recently used the app to post a pic of herself and Terrence Howard in their "love scene" from the movie on Twitter. As you likely already know by now, the Danny Strong-penned movie tells the true tale of Eugene Allen, the late White House butler who served eight presidents during his tenure from 1952 to 1986. Forest Whitaker leads the ensemble cast in the title role, with Winfrey as his wife and Howard in a still-unknown role. But it looks like he's getting pretty cozy with the butler's wife...

Hopefully this movie will provide a bit of bounce back for Daniels, whose "The Paperboy" has been taking a bit of a mauling. It certainly won't be the awards darling that "Precious" was. But The Weinstein Company have faith in the filmmaker, recently picking up the U.S. rights to the pic, and certainly with a cast that includes David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lenny Kravitz, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, John Cusack, Robin Williams, Liam Neeson, Minka Kelly, Alex Pettyfer, Colman Dingo, Vanessa Redgrave, James Marsden, Liev Schreiber and more, this one will be hard to ignore.
