Oprah reveals chores she doesn't know how to do

Oprah reveals chores she doesn't know how to do

Yes, she might be one of the world’s wealthiest women and can pay people to do the most tedious tasks for her, but does that excuse Oprah Winfrey for not knowing how to do even the most basic chores?

Whilst promoting her upcoming moving A Wrinkle in Time, Oprah sat down with E! News, along with her co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, and confessed some of the everyday chores the star doesn’t know how to do.

When the actresses were asked if they still fill up their own cars at the petrol station, Oprah confessed, “I don’t. I gotta just say, I wouldn’t know what to do.”

As Reese and Mindy giggled, Oprah shared another insight into her life, showing how out of touch she is with the average person.

“I actually took someone to the airport recently and I said, ‘Make sure you have your ticket,’ and they were like, ‘What?’ And I said, ‘They don’t have tickets anymore?’”

The former talk show queen’s petrol station revelation comes just days after she made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and admitted she doesn’t answer her own phone at home either.

“I actually have security,” Oprah told Jimmy.

“Somebody does answer the phone and they’ll say, ‘Mr Kimmel is on line two.’”

And then there’s Oprah’s first bank visit since 1988! During a chat with friend Ellen DeGeneres on her TV show last year, Oprah revealed that she’d only recently been to the bank in the first time in almost 20 years.

“What did you go to the bank for?” Ellen asked.

“To deposit a million dollars,” Oprah admitted.

“I just wanted to go there just to do it. I stood in line, just to do it. It felt fantastic,” she added, laughing, before remembering, “Actually, it was $2 million!”

With Forbes estimating Oprah’s worth at $3.5 billion, $2 million sounds like it would have been small change for the star!
