The Help star recently commented on her weight, and voiced her concerns. "I am not healthy at this weight," the 39-year-old said backstage at the SAG awards, where she won best supporting actress.

"Any time you have too much around the middle, then there is a problem. [And] when you reach a certain weight, you are less valuable."

But the actress and Oscar nominee also believes you can be skinny and still unhealthy, and Hollywood should embraces all different sizes, even the very thin ones.

"I feel for the overly thin women as much as I do for the overweight women. It ... has to change."

Although understanding she needs to get healthy, Octavia still keeps it light-sending this message: "If more women ate, they would be a lot happier," she says. "Let me tell you, I am a lot grumpier when I don't eat."
