Octavia Spencer won an Academy Award for her role in "The Help." Her most recent movies "Divergent" and "Insurgent" are box office smashes. And when she's not busy making movies or winning awards, Spencer is also a writer. Her latest children's book is called "Randi Rhodes Ninja Detective: The Sweetest Heist in History."
She was in town for a book signing and stopped by WGN Morning News to chat with entertainment critic Dean Richards.
She's got another book signing tonight at Anderson's Book Shop in Naperville.
