Morgan asked Winfrey, 56, about Martin Luther King, and the talk show host began to get emotional.

Oprah said to Piers:

    "Now you are going to make me weep. I could weep over that. I would because I hold him in reverence. And I know that I would not be here... this life... the dream that I live in, would not be possible if he hadn't had been who he was."

During the interview, Winfrey also discussed President Obama running the country, getting pregnant and losing the baby at age 14 ... and the fact that she'll never marry long-term beau Stedman Graham.

The talk show queen also discussed her thoughts of suicide after learning of her pregnancy. She added, "I did silly things like drinking detergent, but really I was crying for help."

Shock jock Howard Stern will be the next guest on Piers Morgan Tonight.
