A few days ago we got to see Sarah Jessica Parker looking all types of amazing on the cover of Elle Magazine’s Women In Hollywood issue. As Trent explained, SJP shares the cover with a few other Hollywood heavy hitters including Elle Fanning, Emma Watson, and Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer. Today we get to check out Octavia‘s cover, and I am so, so loving it! Click inside to see a few more pics of the amazingness that is Octavia.
YEEESSS! These pictures are so winning for me, lol! I think they captured Octavia brilliantly. But here’s my favorite part of the spread. Elle shared an excerpt from her interview, and it’s pretty awesome:
Early on I had to stand up to a producer – I won’t say who, but he is famous, famous. He dressed me down in a crowded office. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, ‘You don’t know me well enough to use that tone’…And then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby. But he never addressed me that way again. And he is known as a yeller.
OMG. I love this woman. I saw her doing an interview with Oprah last year around Oscar season and she was with her co-star from The Help, Viola Davis. Octavia was so adamant about her love of acting and her right to play any role she wanted to play; she was just the best. I sooo want to know more about this story (with the douchebag producer) but we’ll have to wait and see what else is revealed in the article.
Any other Octavia Spencer fans out there? I’m really excited to watch her blow up the biz, and rack up some more Oscars. She rules!
