Octavia Spencer knows exactly how she wants to treat herself after a successful run at award season and after the Oscar winners are announced.

"Well, I am going to get my boobs lifted. That's going to be my first gift," she told Parade magazine in a recent interview. "I'm going to do that. I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17."

"Right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie," Spencer added when asked if she was going to do the procedure before or after the Oscars. "We're taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn't be back here until about August. So I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January."

The 39-year-old actress is nominated for Best Actress In a Supporting Role for her part in "The Help." The movie stars Emma Stone as an aspiring writer and college graduate who was raised partially by a black maid in the 1960s in Jackson, Mississippi. She decides to write a book from the perspective of many black domestic workers in the area, including two who are played by Spencer and Viola Davis.

The actress also won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA a Screen Actors Guild Award and an NAACP Award for the role.

Spencer has been candid about her body and views about weight. She once revealed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that she wore thee pairs of spanx at the Golden Globe Awards.

In late January, the actress posted on her official Facebook page about being asked by reporters about her weight at several award ceremonies.

"I'm thinking....this is relevant because... Then I started thinking, would these questions ever be asked of my male counterparts? Better yet, underweight actors or actresses? Nah, I don't think so," she wrote.

She later added, "Here's what I will leave you with: Be happy in your own skin. If you are unhealthy start by making small changes to become healthier. You are unique, beautiful, and worthy."

Spencer, an Alabama native, previously starred in films such as "Being John Malkovich" and the 2002 film "Spider-Man." She has also had parts on shows such as "Ugly Betty." She can be seen next in the 2012 movie "Smashed," which also stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul.

UPDATE on Sunday, February 26: Octavia Spencer has won the Oscar for Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in "The Help." Check out details here.
