Octavia Spencer is burning up the awards shows lately, winning big for her role in The Help!
You'd think she'd be on cloud 9 without a care in the world, but that's not true.
She's worried about her weight:
"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," she says. "Let me tell you, I am a lot grumpier when I don't eat."
It's a sad fact, and it does need to change. The opposite ends of the weight spectrum in Hollywood lose their worth for some reason, and that's terrible.
People need to be seen for their talent and their expertise instead!
Congrats on everything, Octavia! We hope you find that healthy place soon!
