She’s earned it!
Asked by Parade if she’s planning a splurge gift to herself in the wake of her success in The Help, Oscar front-runner Octavia Spencer says she does have a little present in mind.
“I am going to get my boobs lifted,” she says. “That’s going to be my first gift. I’m going to do that. I figured going into my 40s I want my boobs where they were when I was 17.”
But don’t expect Spencer, who’ll be 40 on May 25, to debut her new look at the Academy Awards this Sunday, where she’s a favorite to win Best Supporting Actress – having already won Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards, among others. In fact, it will be a little while.
