Octavia Spencer on Birthdays, Keanu Reeves, and Chris Evans

Leave It to Keanu Reeves to Have Octavia Spencer "Crying Like a Baby" on Her Birthday

Octavia Spencer might not have been able to spend her 50th birthday on May 25 like she wanted, but her celebrity friends made sure to give her a gift she would never forget. During her Oct. 22 Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance, Octavia discussed that although she'd planned to spend time with her family, things didn't quite go to plan. Instead, she was surprised with a video her friends put together with a sweet message from Keanu Reeves. "Of course, I started crying like a baby, like, 'Keanu!' It was so fabulous," Octavia told Jimmy. "He's somebody I like, and my friends know that, and it was like the sweetest thing."

Her love of Keanu wasn't the only thing Octavia had feelings about. While gushing about Captain America and her friendship with Chris Evans, Jimmy had to say, "I hate to be the one to tell you this, Chris Evans is not really Captain America." Without missing a beat, Octavia replied, "I know, I know. But I just loved him as Captain America, and I love Captain America." You can see her fangirl about Keanu and Captain America in the full video above.
