“Oh, gosh! I have a Burt Reynolds story,” she said on Rob Lowe’s “Literally!” podcast. Oprah said the interview was with Sally Field, who dated Burt.

“My big mistake: I asked her, ‘Does Burt sleep with his toupee on?’” Oprah said. “I even say now, I cringe to even think that I asked that question. But I asked it because the producers are like, ‘You have to ask, you have to ask, you have to ask. That’s what everybody wants to know.’

“And so I asked it, and she went cold on me. She shut down, and I could not get in again,” she added.

“It was like, ‘Whoa, Sally went cold on me on live TV,’” she said. “I deserved it, I deserved it, I deserved it, ’cause that is such an inappropriate question.”
