Her role as “Minnie” won her stardom and acclaim. Now her hard work in the industry has caught the attention of many, including the Screen Actors Guild.
As we reported, the standout actress took home the award for overall best performance, along with her co-stars of “The Help.”
And she could be honored once again at next month’s Academy Awards.
Since coming to her new found fame, Spencer is becoming increasingly more concerned about her image. Following her appearance on the SAG Award stage, she revealed to People magazine that it’s time for her to shed a few pounds.
“I am not healthy at this weight,” she told People magazine. “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.”
But she also commented that an unhealthy skinny actress is valued just the same.
“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.”
