I think it’s actually a misperception that I am a comedic actress. I do more drama than comedy but very little of it has been seen. When you are in big funny movies and they do well and your little part in it kind of explodes people perceive you as a comedian.

Octavia Spencer Funny Quote

I hope that in some way that I can be some sort of beacon of hope especially because I am not the typical Hollywood beauty.

Octavia Spencer Beauty Quote

I was always a closet lover of acting. My mom was very practical. She never ever restricted our dreams always told us we could do or be anything. Then I said ‘Maybe I want to be an actor’. And she said ‘Maybe not that’.

You cannot live to please everyone else. You have to edify educate and fulfill your own dreams and destiny and hope that whatever your art is that you’re putting out there if it’s received great I respect you for receiving it. If it’s not received great I respect you for not.
