OCTAVIA SPENCER: ‘I SHOULD BE MARRIED WITH 19 KIDS’

Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer is one woman who is not married with children and not at all sad about it. The actress recently shared with her fellow colleagues that motherhood and family life are things that she has sacrificed to become a successful entertainer.

“I should be married and have 19 kids. And now I’m thinking my eggs are dying on the shelf. They’re going to go past their expiration date. But it’s what I chose, so I’m fine with that decision,” the celeb.

Spencer also talked about her upcoming role on television, starring as a detective in Murder She Wrote. “Because I’m a short, cute, chubby woman, there are fewer and fewer roles that I haven’t done [in film] already,” explained the actress. “To break out of that box, the most interesting stuff is television. That’s why [when the opportunity arose] I said, ‘Hey, in my own life, I’m a detective. So I’d rather try that on.’”

Octavia Spencer rose to Hollywood prominence after her spectacular portrayal of Minny Jackson in the hit film, The Help. The star began her trails in entertainment in 1996.

    We are living in the times where a lot of women are opting out of motherhood. At least Ms. Spencer knows what she wants and goes after it. She can always have her a kid, but she may not always be able to have a career. God do everything for a reason. Most women that have kids shouldn’t have them. But God bless them with kids knowing that will be their only happiness in life. Ms. Spencer has been blessed with a career she loves and still have a chance of having a family is she wants. A lot of older women are starting to have families again.

    Good luck on whatever you want to do Ms. Spencer.

    We can’t have it all.

      True. It seems like it don’t it?

      I guess you missed the part where Spencer says “…it’s what I chose, so I’m fine with that decision,”

      Don’t you think you’re being a bit presumptuous? It’s entirely up to the individual to decide what “having it all” entails for themselves. Sure, there are many people who are unable to parent due to circumstances beyond their control. However, those who opt not to parent can find life just as satisfying as their peers who have children, and often argue it to be more so.

        Your point is? Octavia said she should be married with 19 kids, SHE’S the one being presumptuous. It’s not my fault she didn’t get to have children. We can’t have it all and that’s fine.
