Celebrities are just like us, right?

Apparently, if you’re Oprah, you don’t have to go to the bank for yourself. The 63-year-old media mogul revealed to Ellen that she recently stepped foot in the bank for the first time in 30 years… to deposit a $2 million check.

The revelation came on Ellen DeGeneres’ YouTube show, “Ellen’s Burning Questions.” Actually, at first Oprah said the check was only for a million dollars. She later clarified that it was actually a two million check, but that part is just a minor detail, right?

Oprah told Ellen that she had not been to a bank since 1988. So, naturally, she stood in line at her friendly neighborhood bank “just to do it.” We were wondering, however, how Oprah definitely know that the last time she went to the bank was back in 1988? That's oddly specific. For what it's worth, The Oprah Winfrey Show premiered in 1986. 

By the way, Ellen admitted she hadn’t been to the bank in a long time either.

Yes, after learning this... we still can say that celebirites are just like the rest of us. Totally!
