Even Oprah has to spell her name out in Starbucks.


She sat down with her fellow costars Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about all the regular, normal - people things they do.

It turns out Oprah does not get her own Petrol - but she gets her own coffee.

Speaking to E! News, she shared a tale about the time she went to Starbucks, and the barista didn't recognise her.

Kaling asked her:

Can you imagine writing ‘Oprah’ on a coffee cup?

To which she responded:

Oh my god! I just went two days ago!. And the woman said, ‘Name?’ And I said, ‘Oprah.’ And she said … ‘How do you spell that?’

Perhaps Oprah has managed to find the one Starbucks in the entire world who doesn't know who she is.

Or maybe that Starbucks employee has been taking shade lessons from Rihanna.

Here's the entire exchange, below:
