There is no doubt that Octavia Spencer was happy at her SAG win for portraying Minnie Jackson in The Help. One thing that she isn’t so happy about, is her weight.
Backstage at the awards show, she said, “I am not healthy at this weight. 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.”
She also said that Hollywood should be more accepting of actresses who are different sizes. That is, including super thin actress, as well.
She said, “I feel sorry for the overly thin women as much as I do for the overweight women. It has to change. If more women ate, they would be a lot happier. Let me tell you, I am a lot grumpier when I don’t eat.”
