Octavia Spencer has managed to land roles that are incredibly powerful and equally life-changing. And according to the Hidden Figures star, her portrayals of impeccable characters are all by design.

“There are very few roles out there for me. I need to make choices that will be impactful in some way and find characters that resonate with me; that I learn from,” the Academy Award winner told HipHollywood while discussing her latest film, The Shack. 

But while Spencer enjoys playing these types of roles, she admitted that, although most of her characters fall into the “strong women” category, it’s because “I’m drawn to them.” Not because “I necessarily have to play them.”

Octavia picked up her first Academy Award for her role in the 2011 drama, The Help.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
