Oprah Winfrey - Oprah Winfrey gives away car on TV

Oprah Winfrey gave away a car to a stunned fan on live TV on Wednesday night (14.08.13).

The generous star recreated one of her most famous stunts from her old talk show - in which she gave brand new cars to every audience member - by surprising an unsuspecting woman with a lavish new ride while being interviewed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'.

The 59-year-old talk show host-and-actress joined host Jimmy Kimmel, 45, to promote her new movie 'The Butler', but midway through the interview she became restless and declared she had gotten ''that feeling again''.

Oprah appeared to perplex the show's host and audience members as she scoured the studio for a guest to pull onto the stage, and finally settled on a young woman named Britney.

The wealthy star's plan was then unveiled as she declared, ''You, you get a car! You get a car!'', while confetti rained down on the studio.

The shocked audience member was then escorted to her brand new Ford Fusion Energi Hybrid car as Oprah said: ''Every once in a while, Jimmy, it just happens. Especially when I skip lunch.''

The big-hearted gesture was a play on an infamous 2004 episode of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show', on which she gifted cars to her entire studio audience.

Oprah would later top her extravagant motoring gift by whisking every member of her audience off to Australia to mark the final season of her talk show, which ended after 25 years in 2011.
