Oprah Winfrey's surprise bathroom break

Most businesses reserve their bathrooms for employees only - but when Oprah Winfrey shows up, we understand making an exception.

While Oscar-party hopping in Los Angeles Sunday, Winfrey was giving Selma director Ava DuVernay a lift back to her car in Santa Monica where she had been working when suddenly nature started calling on Oprah.

Fortunately Max Lloyd was working late at WorldWideKat, an interview-based web show. DuVernay came up to him and said the words none of us ever expect to hear in our lifetime: "I have Oprah and she really has to pee! Can she use your bathroom?" He obliged and, of course, took a photo.

His coworker Kat De La Fuente was in New York during the crazy moment and posted about it on Instagram too.

She said, "This is too much. Oprah stops by our office while I'm in NYC?!... I'm in shock...The most inspiring amazing woman and I cannot believe she literally knocked on the door of our show's office at 10:30 freakin PM. Most surreal moment of my life and I wasn't even there. I swear if Max hadn't taken this photo I wouldn't have believed it in a million years."

Other Insta users were equally as shocked, calling it "amazing!!" and one user joked that she had a heart attack.

We love a good celeb surprise. Like that time John Travolta was working out at 3 a.m. and introduced himself to the only other guy in the gym. Perfect selfie opportunity.
