    a lot of interested

    A famous person I take a lot of interested in is Oprah Winfrey.

    Doesn't it have to be like this? "the" should come as it's a specific person and "interested" seems to be grammatically wrong.

    Re: a lot of interested

    The first sentence is correct if you change interested to interest. It's better with the indefinite article a.
