Octavia Spencer for Good Housekeeping Magazine

Posted on March 09, 2017

“Hidden Figures” actress Octavia Spencer is featured in the April 2017 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine photographed by Amanda Friedman.


On what makes her most proud: “Through it all, I’m most proud of my family. That means both the family I was born into and the family that chose me — my friends.”

Why her mom is her inspiration: “My mom was a hard worker and did whatever she could to provide for us. To me, having a strong work ethic is what will reign supreme over everything.”

On getting the best advice from Whoopi Goldberg: “The best advice I ever received was from Whoopi Goldberg, who told me to be true to myself. It seems like a cliché until you’re faced with a major decision that will impact your life.”

Octavia’s go-to outfit: “My go-to outfit is a pair of form-fitting jeans and a beautiful, classic top. Sometimes I’ll pair it with a blazer and nice pumps!”
