MUMBAI: Octavia Spencer, winner of the Oscar in the ‘Best Supporting Actress’ category for The Help, has made her intention clear of turning a producer.
"I don't have any role that I want to play. I want to be a producer. I want to be an activist. I was to be pro-active in bringing about work for men, women, boys, girls, everybody who is good at what they do and deserve a shot," she has been reported to have said.
After winning the golden statuette, Spencer admitted she was 'humbled' by the accolade and hoped that she could be a beacon of hope to aspiring actresses. "I'm very humbled because I get to stand here and accept this award and I haven't really done anything. I hope that in some way I can be some kind of beacon of hope, especially am I am not the typical Hollywood beauty," she observed.
Spencer can next be seen in an yet-untitled film by Diablo Cody.
