Susan Sarandon had to phone in her appearance on Monday's Oprah Winfrey Show - because she couldn't get a flight to Chicago, Illinois from New York.
The actress was billed to appear live on Winfrey's sofa, alongside fellow Oscar winners Sissy Spacek and Holly Hunter, but had to scarp her plans due to the Big Apple's ongoing winter white-out snowstorm.
At the top of the show Winfrey explained, "Susan got up at four in the morning and tried to get here... but all flights were canceled."
The Dead Man Walking star joined the get together via satellite.
