The moment – which Oprah has said she categorizes as “flubs of the world” – occurred when she interviewed actor Sally Field and asked about her then-boyfriend, actor Burt. Reynolds.

For those who don’t know, Sally Field is an incredible movie star, who has starred in blockbusters like Lincoln, Norma Rae, and Steel magnolia trees. During the 1970s, she dated her usual costar, actor Burt Reynolds, occasionally for five years. Burt was famous for films like Boogie Nights and Smokey and the bandit.

Burt died in 2018 at the age of 82.

“My big mistake: I asked him, ‘Does Burt sleep with his forelock?’ Oprah said. “I say even now, I cringe at the thought that I even asked that question.”

“But I asked it because the producers are like, ‘You have to ask, you have to ask, you have to ask. This is what everyone wants to know. “”

“It was like, ‘Whoa, Sally chilled me on live TV,” she continued. “I earned it, I earned it, I earned it, because this is such an inappropriate question. “
