This has been an amazing and life changing year for Octavia Spencer. While Octavia has been a steadily working actress in films and television for over a decade, she never achieved massive notoriety until this past year. With her breakout performance in “ the Help “ that lead t not just a SAG and Golden Globe award but has her as the odd on favorite for the Oscar as well, she is moving into true movie stardom . And what is her next move?
“I’m going to get my boobs lifted. That’s going to be my first gift,” she told Parade magazine. “I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17.”
The newly minted award winner will be turning 40 this year and as a gift to herself she has decided to get her breasts lifted. While the move is not exactly, ahem, unheard of in this business. Octavia has stated “I am NOT WORRYING ABOUT MY WEIGHT! I AM NOT TRYING TO CONFORM TO an unrealistic model of beauty,” she wrote. “I AM however being proactive in being the healthiest I can be. And before you ask, NO, awards season is not the reason. I’ve been doing this for the past 10 years because it took that long to gain the weight! Right now, believe it or not, I’m pretty damn healthy! 20 LBS (max) is all I intend to lose.” The actress hasn’t been shy when it comes to talking about her body, and at the end of January; she revealed that she was trying to drop 15 pounds. Spencer later claimed comments that she didn’t feel healthy or as valuable because of her weight, relayed to People magazine, were misconstrued.
“[I'm getting the surgery post-Oscars] because right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie. We’re taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn’t be back here until about August,” she said. “So I want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January.”
