Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer, Best Supporting Actress nominee for "The Help," recently fessed up on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", telling the host that she wore three pairs of Spanx with her Golden Globes dress.

She's clearly a fan of the slimming undergarments but admits they're not the most comfortable piece of clothing. “I could not party [one] night because I was being pinched in places that I didn’t know it was possible. I ran into Melissa McCarthy...and I said, ‘Oh my god Melissa, I’m about to die. My Spanx are killing me.’ She said, ‘I just went to the bathroom and took mine off,” she added.
