BFFs: Oprah Winfrey taped an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres's chat show and found herself being fought over by the comedienne and her A Wrinkle In Time co-star Reese Witherspoon
The Big Little Liars star made a surprise appearance on the show wearing a brown polka dot dress.
'We talk every morning,' Reese bragged about her friendship with Oprah. 'She told me she was coming on your show.'
'Why can't we all just be best friends,' Oprah inquired.
Ellen then explained to her studio audience: 'Oprah's going to ask some questions about herself and the person who answers correctly gets a point.'
'If I win the audience gets a prize from Fandango and if Reese wins, they get nothing,' she added.
