Octavia Spencer GETS FAB For ELLE'S November 2012 "Women In Hollywood" Issue, SPEAKS About PRODUCER Who BULLIED Her

Academy Award winning actress Octavia Spencer shows off her glamorous side in ELLE's 2012 "Women In Hollywood" issue.  And we're loving every bit of her cover pic.   Inside the issue, she talks about taking a stand for herself in Hollywood.  Get the deets inside.....

Octavia Spencer, who won an Oscar for her role in The Help, stars in ELLE magazine’s November 2012 Women In Hollywood issue (on stands Oct 16th). She's joined by Emma Watson and Elle Fanning who are also featured on separate covers.

Inside, Octavia recalls a moment where she had to take a stand in Hollywood against a producer who bullied her.

“Early on I had to stand up to a producer – I won’t say who, but he is famous, famous. He dressed me down in a crowded office. I told him right there in front of a hundred people, ‘You don’t know me well enough to use that tone’…And then I ran to the bathroom and cried like a baby. But he never addressed me that way again. And he is known as a yeller.”

In the photo above, Octavia wears a Tadashi Shoji cocktail dress (her fave designer) with sheer details and a ring from Harry Winston.

I am so sick of white

I am so sick of white industry trying their damn best to transform us into what they think would appeal to the fashion industry and hollywood...Octavia is a beautiful actress and her essence should be celebrated - I would have fired the hair stylist who would even consider putting that wig on her head....

Ladies, it is a rare occurence when a normal regular gorgeous brown sistah like us gets the cover of a magazine in this league, so cherish it. Please go out and buy it, and buy an extra one too to give to a loved one. We want to Octavia issue to sell well!!!!

The white fashion magazines

The white fashion magazines always do this with big girls -- a close up shot rather than a full body shot. There are four other covers and every actress except Octavia has a body shot They also did this with Gabby Sadobuie. It's unfortunate but expected.
