Octavia Spencer On Her Oscar Statue: 'He & I Are Gonna Get Married!'
Best Actress winner and “The Help” star Octavia Spencer is in love with her little golden guy.
“I think he and I are gonna get married!” an ecstatic Octavia told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on Sunday night at the Governor’s Ball following her big win.
“I don’t even know I don’t know what I said, that’s what I’m worried about,” the actress said of her emotional acceptance speech.
“Actually, you said ‘Thank you world,’” Shaun reminded the star.
“Did I say, ‘Thank you world? I said, ‘Thank you world?’” she said with a laugh. “Thank you world!”
In addition to her love for her new golden statue, Octavia explained that she’s really enjoyed all the other non-golden men who helped shower her with awards over the past few weeks.
“I’ve gotten awards from Christian Bale, Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Owen Wilson — I mean, it doesn’t get [better!],” she said.
And what does she plan on doing with her statue – something she affectionately refers to as “the hottest guy in the room” – when she gets home?
“I am going to never let this guy out of my sight for the next 48 hours,” she explained. “I’m gonna redecorate my house, so I can put him right smack dab in the middle of something.”
Octavia explained to Shaun that she’s honored to now have “Oscar winner” come before her name.
“I have to live up to it,” she said with a smile. “I have to live up to it.”
Also on Sunday night at the Governor’s Ball, Shaun spoke to Octavia’s “The Help” co-star, Viola Davis, who was overjoyed for her friend’s win.
“I just so proud. It means so much to Octavia,” Viola told Shun. “It’s like she said last year at this time, she didn’t know where her next job was coming, and now this. It’s just speaks to just how magical this business can be.”
