Octavia Spencer


Spencer reveals that she worries about her weight during a backstage interview at the 2012 SAG Awards, saying, 'Any time you have too much around the middle, then there is a problem.'

Octavia Spencer opened up about her thoughts on her weight. She said at the backstage of 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, "I am not healthy at this weight." She added, "Any time you have too much around the middle, then there is a problem. [And] when you reach a certain weight, you are less valuable."

Blaming the society, Spencer explained, "It's a society that tells you you're no longer valuable at a certain age...Or because of your weight." She went on, "I feel for the overly thin women as much as I do for the overweight women. It...has to change."

In the interview, the Minny Jackson depicter on "The Help" additionally joked about being cranky when she doesn't eat. "If more women ate, they would be a lot happier. Let me tell you, I am a lot grumpier when I don't eat," she said.

At the 2012 SAG Awards, Spencer brought home Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role title thanks to her role in the Viola Davis-starring movie. She said of the trophy she nabbed, "I'm just gonna [sic] lift this baby a few times to lose that little bit of weight I need to."
