Octavia Spencer Does Not Feel Bad About Speaking Up For Diversity in Hollywood!

Octavia Spencer is very aware of the lack of diversity in Hollywood and she’s not afraid to speak up about it!

“Since making Hidden Figures, I don’t have a problem saying to a room of male executives: ‘I need a female writer or a female director,’ or ‘I need a black voice or a Latin voice’,” the 46-year-old Oscar-winning actress recently told the New York Times. “I do not feel bad about it.”

“The big boys were big boys,” Octavia added about speaking up in meetings in the past. “They heard me and encouraged me to have a voice, always listened to my needs. We as women should always ask for what we need and might be surprised that there might not be as much resistance as we perhaps perceive.”

Octavia rocked a sophisticated ensemble to attend the 2016 UNICEF Snowflake Ball last night, Tuesday (November 29), alongside Maggie Q, Tea Leoni, Patina Miller, Brooke Burke and her hubby David Charvet, Meryl Davis, Kyle MacLachlan and his wife Desiree Gruber at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

FYI: Octavia is wearing a black tuxedo jacket and matching pants by Laura Basci. Brooke is wearing a Rubin Singer gown.

Bella Hadid's Mom Defends Her After Meryl Davis Criticizes Her Nike Campaign

Bella Hadid‘s new campaign deal with Nike was announced this week and the brand was criticized by Olympic figure skater Meryl Davis for not using a professional athlete in its ads.

Meryl posted a collage of photos featuring Bella in Nike gear, Kylie Jenner in Puma clothing, and gymnast Aly Raisman wearing Reebok. She captioned the pic, “I’ll take the one promoted by the athlete please.”

Bella‘s mom Yolanda Hadid has come to her defense and told TMZ that her daughter competed in equestrian riding from when she was 3 until she was 15, when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. She even had dreams of going to the Olympics in the sport.

“You obviously don’t have to be an athlete to wear or enjoy Nike wear,” Yolanda said.

WHO DO YOU AGREE with on the matter – Yolanda Hadid or Meryl Davis?
