Lately, some surprising news developments have clued us into the fact that Oprah Winfrey is indeed just like us. Well, except for the fact that she's a billionaire and one of the world's most famous people... but suspend your disbelief for a sec and go with us.
First, we learned that the queen of daytime TV finds Auntie Anne's Pretzels quite delicious, which is an all-too-human predilection. And now, we know that Oprah's name — just like ours! — gets butchered at Starbucks.
Along with A Wrinkle in Time co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, The Big O sat down with E! News to discuss some details of her everyday life — if indeed she has an "everyday" life. When asked if she pumps her own gas, Winfrey admitted: "I wouldn't know what to do!"
She's also a bit behind on her travel technology. "I took someone to the airport recently and was saying: 'Make sure you have your ticket,' and they looked like, 'what?' And I said: 'They don't have tickets anymore?," Winfrey laughed.
But, the TV legend does make her own coffee runs, and even enlightens baristas on how to spell her (ever-so-slightly famous) name. Winfrey recounted what happened when she recently hit up Starbucks. "I just went two days ago, and the woman said: 'Name?' And I said 'Oprah.' And she said: 'How do you spell that?,'" she recounted, amid peals of laughter.
Watch her share the hilarious anecdote, below:
And, for the record: It's O-P-R-A-H.
