Oprah Winfrey showed off her generosity during a lunch at a posh Beverly Hills restaurant earlier this week (begs23Apr12) by ordering her entourage to buy a homeless man a lavish lunch.
The TV titan was in a creative meeting with executives from her Own network on the Scarpetta eaterie's patio, and enjoyed a five-course meal while she listened to her employees' ideas.
But the star interrupted the chat when she was approached by a man who asked for a bowl of soup - and she made his day by giving him a wad of cash and organising a sumptuous feast.
A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six Oprah was heard saying, "Please, can we get him some money, get him a meal."
When the man told the star his name was Eddie, she reportedly replied, "God bless you, Eddie."
