You actually just had your seventh wedding
anniversary, you and Alex. – Yes, yes.
– Congratulations on that. – Yes, thank you.
[cheers and applause] – Seven years.
– And so–yeah, there she is. There’s my boo.
There’s my baby. And, um–
and the funny thing is, you know, seeing Oprah
on our anniversary, We went to New York,
and, you know, we saw a play, We saw “Fun Home,”
and we stayed at a really nice–this
new hotel, the Baccarat Hotel. So we’re sitting in the lobby
after the play and everything, and you know,
having drinks and stuff, and then, in walks Oprah. And I’m like,
“Oh, wow, that’s Oprah.” And she goes, “Go say hello.
Go say hello, you know Oprah.” – You always act like she’s
smoking, she’s not. Like–
[audience laughter] – I can’t help it! That’s the only way
I can do the French thing. I do the French thing,
I do the cigarette. – So she’s French.
We know that by now. You don’t have to make her
smoke every time. – All right.
[audience laughter] – So she says, “Go see Oprah.” – “Go say hi,” and I said,
“No, I don’t want– You know, you don’t
just run up on people, you know, especially at a hotel. I don’t know what she up to,
you know, so– [audience laughter] Right?
So, uh–so– Then–so we just sat there,
and then she was leaving, and I was like, “You know what?” I had a few drinks–I said,
“I’m gonna say hi,” right? I know Oprah, right? So I go over,
and I say hello and all, then she comes over and says
“Oh, let me meet Alex,” so we’re sitting there talking,
and Oprah says, “Wow, this is a lovely hotel.
My first time here.” And Alex goes– Wait, she goes–she goes–
[audience laughter] I can’t do it.
– Go ahead. She goes,
“Yes, it’s very lovely, but it’s very expensive.” She says this to Oprah Winfrey.
I looked at her like– [audience laughter] Oprah don’t know
what that word means! What is wrong with you?
[audience laughter] [audience laughter] I had to apologize, like,
“I’m so sorry, Oprah.” [audience laughter] “She’s French,
she didn’t know any better.”
