*Octavia Spencer is super sexy on the cover of Elle magazine this month.

Haute mama is showing off her cute flirtatious side in the “Women in Hollywood” issue. And yes she is working that cover in a slick black top and big hair. Yeah, haute stuff!

Best known for her Oscar winning role in “The Help,” Octavia discusses her climb to the top, dealing with a jerk of a producer.

“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.”

She’s just as sassy y’all.

The November issue of Elle is available October 16.
