Supporting actress nominee and star of "The Help," Octavia Spencer raised a stir this awards season when she revealed she had worn not one, not two but three pairs of body shaping undergarments -- Spanx-- to last month's Golden Globes ceremony.
"I want to be comfortable and look good and have fun," Spencer told reporters at the Globes. "So I'm just going to do the normal one here, one there," she said, laughting. "Here a Spank, there a Spank, everywhere a Spank-Spank."
The control-top body shapers, available online and in stores nationwide, have become such a red-carpet must for women that the company introduced a men's only line designed to boost muscles and minimize the belly.
