As long as Dakota Fanning -- and most of you! -- have been alive, so has The Oprah Winfrey Show. Tomorrow marks the final episode of the ground-breaking talk show, which has been on the air for 25 years.
Dakota is a self-proclaimed "lifelong Oprah Show watcher" --Â and she made a special appearance on Monday's show to represent an entire generation of "Oprah Babies" whose lives literally have been changed by the show.

"Your voice has been the soundtrack to our lives -- every milestone, every first, you were there," Dakota said. "We've learned from The Oprah Show that we are enough, that we matter, that our lives have value."
Girls then spoke up, chiming in about how the show has inspired them. One girl talked about how Oprah helped her lose 20 pounds. Another talked about how she and her mother used to watch the show every day... but her mom died when she was 14, and now she's kept watching it to carry on their tradition. Yet another girl said that watching Oprah inspired her to report that she was being abused... and ultimately changed her life for the better.
"Oprah, thank you," Dakota continued. "Because of The Oprah Winfrey Show, we believe girls can run the world."
