Octavia Spencer Praises Taraji P. Henson
Octavia Spencer is showing love to Taraji P. Henson over the success for their new film, ‘Hidden Figures‘. For a second week in a row, the film has topped the box office. Spencer took to social media, tipping her hat to the actress. She wrote:
Shout out and tip of the hat to my sis @tarajiphenson. She tops the box office two weeks in a row. Now before people weigh in… yes, @janellemonae and I put in work on this film, and we gladly take our bows. But, if this movie had tanked Taraji would have taken the flack because she is the lead. So, in the spirit of living the dream and advocating for my sisters, so proud of you, sis. Glad to be your wing woman. Dun dun dun… don’t you know that we’re able. Dun dun dun…That alone makes us major… #hiddenfigures?
She also posted other messages thanking fans, along with fraternities and sororities for supporting the film.
On this #mlkday I’d like to say a special thank you to all of the black Greeks who have bought out theaters supporting us and the women we portray. We feel and appreciate the love!!! Feel free to give shout outs to your sorors and frat bros below!!! I see you Deltas. I see you AKAs. I see you Zetas. I see you Sigmas. If your fraternity or sorority has bought theaters let us know. We want to show you love. Thanks to all of you who are showing up in record numbers. We see you. #greekssupportingHiddenFigures Repost @_marvelicious_ with @repostapp ??? I’m so excited for the new Hidden Figures movie?? Like, it looks great and I’ve been inspired to draw some fan art for it! It has a really good message for young women who are African American that you can be anything you want to be! And me being young and African American, I want to be a professional artist and work for Disney/Pixar someday! I’m really happy at how this came out and I hope you guys are too! Happy Holidays as well! ????#hiddenfigures #hiddenartists #artistsofinstagram #artist #artistsofinstagram #art? #blackgirlmagic #fanart @hiddenfiguresmovie @tarajiphenson @janellemonae @therealoctaviaspencer @pharrell @20thcenturyfox
