February 2, 2012 9:15 am

Award winning actress Octavia Spencer called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Thursday to set the record straight on her actual age and dish on wearing three pairs of spanx on the red carpet!

Octavia confessed she used to wear “the triple spanx. I can’t do that anymore. I’m only going to do double. You can’t get too much of a good thing. It’s painful! The minute you take one pair off it’s like the poppin’ fresh dough. Everything just pops out!” She continues, “then I realized you can be sucked in for a second. I lived in ‘em. Then I thought to myself ‘Well, if one works what will two do?’ Then of course I got three and put them on and I won’t do that ever again.”

The Oscar nominated actress corrected her age misconception saying, “I’m 39! Contrary to people saying I’m 41, 42, 43. I want to live my last 8 weeks at 39 feeling like I’m 39!” Octavia reminded Ryan that she is “about to work with your girlfriend [Julianne Hough], and she better not stand too close to me. I’m still single and she’s hot. So I don’t want any guys that are coming in my direction to make a detour towards her!”
