Octavia Spencer plans to reward herself for all of her awards season accolades for “The Help” with a little cosmetic work.
“I am going to get my boobs lifted,” the actress told Parade magazine when asked what her first “splurge gift” will be. “That’s going to be my first gift. I’m going to do that.
“I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17,” she added.
The 39-year-old star has already found a time in her schedule to have the surgery.
“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 told the mag. “So, I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January.”
With a Golden Globe and SAG Award under her belt for her portrayal of “The Help’s” sassy Minny (and a nomination for Best Supporting Actress at Sunday’s Academy Awards), Octavia has had her fair share of celebrity encounters, but was star struck by two in particular.
“Steven Spielberg. I saw him quite a few times and he was always smiling. And I literally probably looked like a stalker,” she told Parade. “He and Oprah. They’re right there together.”
Adding, “Oprah changed my dream of what I could be and Steven influenced every ounce of my artistry. I think he’s just the best ever. The fact that I got to do a movie for his studio and had conversations with him is like ‘Oh my God.’”
