The Insider caught up backstage with the winners of the SAG Awards, including cast members of Modern Family, who were showing off their muscles; Boardwalk Empire's Gretchen Mol, who claimed that slapping was "very cathartic"; The Artist's Jean Dujardin with his Best Actor Award in hand; The Help's Chris Lowell, who admitted to being drunk; and Octavia Spencer, who revealed to us why she's losing weight.
When asked if she was losing weight, Spencer responded, "Well, I have, and I'm also wearing Spanx. Spanx are a girl's best friend."
"I'm working out with a trainer," the 39-year-old actress revealed. "I'm just trying to get some of this adipose fat from around my belly so that I don't have a heart attack. That's the truth."
Whatever the reason may be, Octavia is looking good and so is her trophy case after she was awarded the SAG Awards Best Cast Award alongside her co-stars of The Help.
