Oprah Winfrey hosted the highest-rated daytime talk show for more 25 years, earned two Oscar nominations and won an honorary statuette, lays claim to a Presidential Medal of Freedom, and launched her own television network (called, well, OWN). "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?'" Oprah recounted, sending the trio into fits of laughter and the rest of the world wondering which rock that barista has been living under since the 1970s, when Oprah began her quest to take over the world. I had a kid, I'm a single mom.

Hollywood darling Reese Witherspoon always keeps busy - she's been bustling away with promoting her upcoming film "A Wrinkle In Time", which also stars Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling - but she always makes time to visit a special "friend". "I had, literally, a corncob doll ... where you take the corn, shuck it, and then you try to make a little doll and you use the silk for the hair".

"We're living in a chaotic time as adults, so imagine if you have only been on the Earth for a few years or 11 years or 12 years, the tension that you feel", DuVernay told the crowd. A U-Haul truck from Oprah. "I was supposed to go to work that day (but I was like), I gotta be here".

What showed up on her doorstep, Kaling said, was a hand-carved bookcase, filled with must-have classic children's books. "And I held my baby up to it and I said, 'Did you see what Ms Winfrey did for you?'"

Cambridge's own Mindy Kaling has busted out of her mommy cocoon, making her first public appearance since giving birth to her daughter, Katherine, on December 15. And with no less than 100 books in the collection, there was even one more heartfelt detail: They each had "Katherine's Book Club" printed on them.

Ah, we're sure she doesn't mind.

Directed by Emmy (R) winner and Oscar (R) and Golden Globe (R) nominee Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Oscar winner Jennifer Lee based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L'Engle, "A Wrinkle in Time" stars: two-time Academy Award (R) nominee Oprah Winfrey, Oscar and Emmy winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy nominee Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Pe?a and introducing Storm Reid, with two-time Emmy winner Zach Galifianakis and Emmy nominee Chris Pine.
