Time to steal the donuts! Apparently, that's also the way to steal New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's heart.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, set to air Sunday, the hefty GOP governor dishes about his relationship with wife Mary Pat, his struggle with weight, and presidential politics.


Christie recalls how he and Mary Pat broke into a dining hall at the University of Delaware to steal donuts. He also talks about why he won't let daughter Sarah have a Facebook page — a decision supported by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg — and on how he thinks he'll be more ready to run for president in four years.

A transcript of the interview was released to The Associated Press. The interview airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
