Octavia Spencer: Triple Spanx for Award Shows!

Octavia Spencer stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for an episode airing Wednesday (February 1).

The 41-year-old Oscar nominee shared it’s been “very stressful” during award season with all the fittings and dresses.

“I was not a girl scout but I try to be very prepared. I try to over prepare, shoes and Spanx. I triple Spanx. Which is not good,” Octavia told Ellen.

“I could not party [one] night because I was being pinched in places that I didn’t know it was possible. I ran into Melissa McCarthy who is in Bridesmaids and brilliant, one of my closest friends. I said, ‘Oh my god Melissa, I’m about to die. My Spanx are killing me.’ She said, ‘I just went to the bathroom and took mine off,” she added.

Tune into Octavia‘s interview to also find out why she ran down her street nearly naked a few years ago!
