Some habits die hard.

And when it comes to Oprah Winfrey, those habits apparently include giving things away. Specifically, cars. Because during an appearance Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the former queen of daytime talk stopped in the midst of an interview to promote her new film to tell the late-night host that she "just got the feeling again. You know, that feeling."

Oprah then pointed at a woman in the studio audience and beckoned her to come on stage, where Oprah proceeded to shriek, "You, you get a car! You get a car!" as confetti rained down from the ceiling.

The lucky winner, a woman named Britney, was quickly whisked outside by Kimmel's sidekick, Guillermo, where a shiny new Ford Fusion Energi Hybrid awaited her.

"Every once in a while, Jimmy, it just happens, especially when I skip lunch," explained Oprah, who later tweeted, "THAT was fun. I don't know what came over me."

The whole scene was, of course, a play off of the 2004 season premiere of The Oprah Winfrey Show, where the talk-show host gave away a new car to every member of her studio audience, repeatedly shrieking "You get a car!"

Oprah stars alongside Forest Whitaker in Lee Daniels' The Butler, out Friday.
