Octavia Spencer - The Things They Say 24226
"I don't know how to cook or bake or prepare anything in the kitchen, and my character, Minny, is a fantastic cook. That was the hardest part of playing her. I don't know how to do anything other than get a plate from the cabinet and stick something in the microwave." Oscar-nominated actress Octavia Spencer admits she is no good in the kitchen, unlike the maid she plays in 1960s period drama The Help.
