Octavia Spencer has already won the award for Best Supporting Actress (for her role in “The Help”) at both the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild, so it appears her career is on the right path. However, backstage at the SAG Awards, she admitted her health is not.
“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. I feel 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.”
