So what do you get the woman who already has – and can afford – everything and anything she wants? According to Perry, you get her a giant floral arrangement and a strained back.
Winfrey turned 59 on Tuesday, but it wasn’t until the next day that she received her birthday gift from Perry.
The 43-year-old actor, director, and screenwriter sent the famous talk show host a large bouquet of flowers … that’s right flowers.
Of course it’s pretty hard to get a bundle of flowers large enough to strain a woman’s back, so we’re assuming that the container the flowers were in was very heavy.

“I feel so bad,” the man behind Madea wrote on Facebook. “I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up.”
Now before you think the Alex Cross actor is trying to be funny, he went on to assure his Facebook fans that this was not a joke. The large arrangement of flowers had indeed injured Winfrey’s back, forcing her to spend the rest of her day in bed.
“No Joke!” Perry continued. “Feel better Oprah, Happy birthday. Sorry.”
