Oprah Winfrey sat down with Piers Morgan recently and confessed depression led to an unsavory habit - she ate 30 pounds of macaroni and cheese.

On CNN's new show "Piers Morgan Tonight," the talk show host and Oprah talked turkey.  Piers asked her what the worst "turkey" she ever had was, and Oprah mentioned the failure of her film "Beloved." So she turned to comfort food.

"I literally went into a tailspin," Oprah confessed.  She said it was the only time in her life she was ever seriously depressed.
