Octavia Spencer: 'I'm Going to Get My Boobs Lifted' After The Oscars

No matter whether she wins or loses, Best Supporting Actress nominee Octavia Spencer is going to treat herself after the 2012 Academy Awards.

"I'm going to get my boobs lifted. That's going to be my first gift," she told Parade magazine. "I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17."

The 41-year-old star, who has already won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA Award and a SAG Award for her role in "The Help," told the magazine she plans to go under the knife after next fall.

"[I'm getting the surgery post-Oscars] because right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie. We're taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn't be back here until about August," she said. "So I want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January."

The actress hasn't been shy when it comes to talking about her body, and at the end of January, she revealed that she was trying to drop 15 pounds. Spencer later claimed comments that she didn't feel healthy or as valuable because of her weight, relayed to People magazine, were misconstrued.

Spencer turned to her Facebook page to clear up the quotes that were taken out of context. "I am NOT WORRYING ABOUT MY WEIGHT! I AM NOT TRYING TO CONFORM TO an unrealistic model of beauty," she wrote. "I AM however being proactive in being the healthiest I can be. And before you ask, NO, awards season is not the reason. I've been doing this for the past 10 years because it took that long to gain the weight! Right now, believe it or not, I'm pretty damn healthy! 20 LBS (max) is all I intend to lose."

Celebs who regret going under the knife:

  • Sharon Osbourne

    "I wish I'd never had my breasts done the last time," she told New Magazine. "They've put these bloody great bags in that are too f***ing round--it's like a water bed on your chest."

  • Denise Richards

    "When I was 19, a doctor put in bigger implants than what I asked for. I was in such a hurry to get them that I didn't research my doctor," Richards told Us Weekly. "I just thought because they're a plastic surgeon, they must be good. You have to be your advocate for your own body and ask 100 questions." Later Richards wrote: "At 19 when I first got my breasts done, I wish that I was confident enough with my body to not have had surgery. That is something that I really want to encourage in my daughters, to embrace their healthy body and have confidence. I actually feel more confident in my skin now than in my 20's. Being confident is one of the sexiest qualities a woman can exude."

  • Jenny McCarthy

    "Me and my friends found a doctor in Arizona that cost about $1,500 to get our boobs done--because they didn't use anesthesia and I didn't know it," McCarthy told WENN. In a later interview with Us Weekly, the former playmate said she was "too young" when she got her implants at 19.

  • Victoria Beckham

    In an interview with British Vogue, Victoria was asked about the absence of her "torpedo bazookas", to which the former Spice Girl reportedly replied, "gone".

  • Kimberly Stewart

    In an interview with Now Magazine, Kimberly states her famous father was supportive of his daughter when she had the implants put in at 18, and even more supportive when she decided to get rid of them. She recalls, "He's very supportive of whatever I do. He was just like, 'If you don't feel comfortable, if you don't feel safe, just get them removed.'"

  • Kourtney Kardashian

    When she was 22, she got surgery to go from a B-cup to a C-cup. "It was so dumb... I just got the idea in my head one day, and that was that. There was no talking me out of it," said Kardashian in an interview with Us Weekly.

  • Danielle Staub

    Last year, Staub had another surgery to correct a botched boob job she got done when she was younger. "She was very upset with her breasts," her doctor, Michael Fiorillo told, Us Weekly. "Scar tissue formed around the breast implant and that makes the implants hard, cold and deformed...the right one was almost up by her neck!"

  • Kim Zolciak

    Kim got her breast implants at age 20. Looking at pictures of herself on vacation in Miami last year, Zolciak couldn't believe what she saw. "My boobs looked crazy and saggy," she revealed to In Touch.

  • Heidi Montag

    The Hills star -- now a size "E or F" depending on the bra had a staggering 10 procedures done in one day. "I'm obsessed with fitness but it's impossible to work out with these boobs," Montag told Life and Style Magazine. "It's heartbreaking. I can't live an everyday life."

  • Jenna Jameson

    "When I had implants, I felt uncomfortable," the former porn star told Us Weekly. "I would be shy at the beach. I know it sounds funny, but I'd wear high-necked clothes, unless I was at an adult-film convention. So I thought, 'why don't I be who I am and get my real ones back?'"

  • Tara Reid

    "I was a 34B, but the right one was always bigger than the left," she told Us Weekly. "He gave me Cs, and I didn't want them. At all."

  • Tori Spelling

    "Well, I got my boobs done in my early 20s," Spelling told Good Morning America. "If I had known that it would or could possibly impact production of milk, I wouldn't have had them. I love being a mom. I am on my third baby. We want to have more. That's my role... these don't matter."
