With just three more days until the Oscars, one front-runner has already shared her post-Oscar gift to herself - plastic surgery. We start this week's Round-Up with an award-winning nip/tuck admission - how very "un-Hollywood."
Octavia Spencer is having her "moment" already having won Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards for her role in The Help. The Oscar favorite, she was recently asked what she wants the most after all the hoopla is done. Her answer? A breast lift.
"I am going to get my boobs lifted," she told Parade. "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."
While most actors and actresses get their work done pre-Oscar festivities, the 39-year-old actress' has very specific reasons for waiting.
“Oh definitely post [Academy Awards] because right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie," she added.
"We're taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn't be back here until about August. So I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January.”
Luckily for Spencer, winter is an ideal time for breast work - you can cover up the recovery bras with comfy sweaters and scarves.
