Oprah Winfrey has said running to be President of the United States would "kill" her.

There have been calls for the chat show star to consider a move into the political arena since her inspiring speech at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

But she told Vogue magazine she had ruled out a run for office.

Asked if she was sure that she would not run, Winfrey (64) said: "Yes. In that political structure - all the non-truths, the bullshit, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on - I feel like I could not exist. I would not be able to do it. It's not a clean business. It would kill me."

Winfrey features on the cover of the magazine's new issue.
