"I don't think I've ever been to an awards show, and had this much fun," the Hidden Figures star told Ellen DeGeneres on the Wednesday episode of her daytime talk show.
Spencer credited her sunny disposition to the custom Laura Basci tuxedo she wore to the awards show. "In doing that, I was able to be [more free] ...less underwear," the 46-year-old actress admitted. "A lot less underwear, and I was just radiant. Everyone was like, 'Oh, you're so happy,' and they thought it was because of the box office. But I'm thinking, 'My feet don't hurt and I am not cinched.' It was wonderful."
After DeGeneres noted that she always wears suits and comfortable footwear, Spencer quipped, "More women need to say, 'You know what, we're going to wear the pantsuit.'"
Spencer was so excited about her tuxedo that she ended up oversharing with one of her peers at the Golden Globes. "I had so much fun that I bumped into Casey Affleck," she recalled. "Before I knew it, I was telling him, 'You know why I'm happy, I'm not wearing all that underwear.' Um, probably I'm speaking too much!"
DeGeneres managed to find a photo of the moment Spencer made this confession to Affleck and they're facial expressions are priceless. "Well, you made his night better too," DeGeneres joked.
