A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay didn’t just have the pleasure of working with Oprah Winfrey, she also introduced her to one of the simple pleasures in life — Auntie Anne’s pretzels. Of course, Oprah loved them, but seriously, who doesn’t? She may be Oprah, but she can’t deny the deliciousness of Auntie Anne’s! “One day I came in and I was like, ‘This pretzel is so good,'” Ava said to Oprah, recounting the situation to E! News. “She’s like, ‘Oh my God this pretzel is incredible! What chef? What bakery?'” Oh, Oprah.
Ava continued, “I was like, ‘Yeah so like regular people have to walk through an airport to get to the flights, usually.’ I love it because her eyes light up… like new things.” Too funny!

This isn’t the first time it’s been pointed out that Oprah isn’t quite like us. She’s one of the most successful women in the world, so of course, she has slightly different experiences than the rest of the population. She recently revealed to E! News that she doesn’t know how to pump her own gas!
“I gotta just say, I wouldn’t know what to do,” she said. Reese Witherspoon, who was also in the interview and who does pump her own gas, encouraged her, “You would, it would come back to you!” Oprah replied, “I actually took someone to the airport recently and I was like make sure you have your ticket and they were like ‘What?’ and I said, ‘They don’t have tickets anymore!'”
The television personality does, however, get her own coffee! “Can you imagine writing ‘Oprah’ on a [Starbucks] coffee cup?” Mindy Kaling jokingly asked her co-stars during the interview. “I just went two days ago and the woman said ‘Name?’ and I said ‘Oprah’ and she said ‘How do you spell that?'” Oprah replied. Can you imagine?! We officially have to keep an eye out for Oprah at Starbucks and Auntie Anne’s.
