Octavia Spencer wants her girls put back where they were at 17

Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer is taking this supporting actress thing seriously -- emphasis on the "supporting" -- with more than her career likely to get a lift in the wake of awards season and her run of success with "The Help."

"I am going to get my boobs lifted," the Oscar nominee told Parade magazine when asked if she planned to splurge on anything as a reward to herself. "That's going to be my first gift. I'm going to do that. I figured going into my 40s I want my boobs where they were when I was 17."

But first she has to spend a few months shooting a project directed by Diablo Cody, a job that'll take her out of the country through August or so.

But after that, Spencer said, things will be looking up. And moving up.

"I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January."

Golden Globes 2012: 'The Help' cast enjoys the evening together

"The Help" table inside the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton was shaping up as a friendly affair. Jessica Chastain was flipping out: It's her first Golden Globes, she's nominated, and Elton John just walked by.

She's up against her friend Octavia Spencer for supporting actress in a film, but there is no friendly competition: "Octavia is going to win," Chastain announces.

Producer Chris Columbus arrives at that moment, and while director Tate Taylor and star Viola Davis take their seats he says, "If we win best picture, you all have to come up there with me. I'm not going alone. Octavia already told me she'd rush the stage."

When it comes to taking the stage as a winner, lead actress in a drama nominee Viola Davis has delivered some of the most heartfelt acceptance speeches. "I just have a lot to say after 23 years of being in this business, and 46 years of life," she'd said on the red carpet, flanked by her husband, Julius Tennon.

As for her bond with "The Help" cast members, David said she's become especially close with  Spencer. "Octavia and I talk three times a day," she said, proceeding to imitate one of their conversations.

"It's like, 'Hey girl, what ya doin?' 'Oh nothin', what ya doin?' 'Eating pizza, what are you eating?' 'Oh, I don't know, maybe some black eyed peas?' 'All right then, talk to you later.'"
