"I could not have had the life or the career in the way that I had it if I'd chosen to have children," she explained, while also talking about her longtime love Stedman Graham. "As we grow together, as we get older together, he becomes a more affirming and more loving part of my life than he's ever been."

Winfrey, who stopped hosting her own talk show in 2011, also told Walters she doesn't miss working on set every day. "I don't miss that because you know you're only as good as the last show. You're always chasing the numbers," Winfrey said. "And this is the thing: The 25 years are a blur to me because I just worked."

Winfrey even admitted that life in general is a lot more enjoyable now her illustrious career as a host is over. "For example, I'm going to do something I've always wanted to do. I wanted to do that truffle hunt, with the pigs and the dogs. So, I'm at least taking some time," she said.

The ABC News special 'Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014,' aired Sunday (Dec 14th).
