When asked if the Help actress, who received an Oscar nom for Best Supporting Actress, could see history repeating itself come February 26 if she wins big at the Academy Awards, Spencer considered her options.

"Well, if a good-looking guy is attached and he wants us to streak together…late at night...where there are no people…that's about the most streaking I have left in me!" she laughed to Us.

"He's responsible for the success of the film so I couldn't think of anyone better I want to share that moment with than him! I am so excited."
