Whoopi Goldberg has recently spilled major secret for her successful, decades-long career in Hollywood.

In a new interview with PEOPLE, Whoopi, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming memoir, Bits and Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me out on May 7, revealed, "I have to say, the same attitude I had in my forties, I have in my sixties... I give zero you-know-whats."

"If I don’t want to do it, I’m okay with walking away. Pick your battles and then fight those," stated the Sister Act actress.

Whoopi revealed she doesn't care what critics think about her because of her positive attitude.

"Most of the time I think, 'Well, you don't know me well enough to dislike me," she told the outlet.

Whoopi mentioned, "You dislike aspects of me, but you don't know me to dislike me, so I'm not going to sweat it."

The actress previously made headlines for her breakout role as Celie in the 1985 drama The Color Purple and her Oscar-winning performance as Oda Mae Brown in 1990's Ghost.

Meanwhile, Whoopi appeared in the season 11 episode of Reading Rainbow, Amazing Grace.

In the latest documentary, Butterfly in the Sky, she opened up about participating in the children show.

"Now you may ask why would you do something like Reading Rainbow? I mean, you’re not making any money," she continued.

Whoopi pointed out, "What is the pull? I can tell you why it was for me, because I’m dyslexic. So I learned to read long after I should've. Reading opens everything."

In the end, the actress added, "I’m so glad I got here."
