Spencer explained, I should be married and have 19 kids. And now Im thinking my eggs are dying on the shelf. Theyre going to go past their expiration date.

But its what I chose, so Im fine with that decision, she added while participating in a roundtable discussion with Emma Thompson, Amy Adams, Lupita Nyongo, Oprah Winfrey, and Julia Roberts.

Octavia also described her acting process while making Fruitvale Station- “I think for me, the scariest moment was taking Fruitvale Station because I”ve never played a real person. There”s a responsibility that is owed, and then there”s a life that extends beyond the screen.

“And having to go to that place to where, I”m not a mom, and having to imagine losing a child that I had to substitute for one of my nephews.”
