Is Octavia Spencer Married?

The Hidden Figures actress appears to be single at the moment and is more focused on building her career as an actress. She has allegedly been in and out of so many relationships (in the quest of finding the perfect one) and even the ones that looked to be “the one” still fell short.
It is believed that her present commitment to herself and to her career has come from a place of hurt and disappointment. As we have mentioned earlier, the Self Made star may have previously gotten involved in the wrong relationships which led to her having some bad experiences and not wanting to commit to anyone.
But is she searching for a relationship? Not at all! In an interview, she made it clear that she was okay with not being married and that she was not looking for a man; rather, a man who is interested in her would approach her and make his intentions known.

Are Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in a Relationship?
Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer are not dating. The Hollywood celebrities are just two actors who are passionate about their career and have worked together on several occasions. According to sources, they developed a close friendship bond while working together in films as they worked together for the first time in 2014 when they played leading roles in the movie Black or White.
Kevin Costner is a prominent American actor who is best known for his roles in Silverado, The Untouchables, Man of Steel, and The Guardian. He is a well-decorated actor with multiple accolades under his name, including two Academy and Golden Globe Awards each. Besides acting, he is also involved as a producer, film director, and musician.
Is Kevin Costner Married to Octavia Spencer?
Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer are not married. It is also unfathomable to think that they would be married when they were never dating. For clarity, however, Kevin Costner is a happily married man and has been married to his lovely wife named Christine Baumgartner for over two decades.
The Hollywood celebrities were rumored to have gotten married after their picture was posted on a bizarre online advertisement with the caption “They Are Married Today”. And of course, as one would expect, this sparked controversy among their fans and also among netizens as the two had never really shared a public romantic relationship. Moving from colleagues to a married couple seemed a bit too much even for the staunchest of fans.
Following this revelation, “internet detectives” set about their work and it was discovered that the image that appeared on the advertisement was taken at an after-party in 2014, following the completion of the filming of the movie, Black or White. However, the uproar also prompted a lot of fans to start looking for information online to determine whether there was any connection between the movie sets and their own personal lives.
According to Snopes, when the advertisement was clicked, it took users to a 36-page slideshow of weddings of other people, but it omitted Kevin and Octavia’s names. According to the source, the advertisement was spread by Definition.org as clickbait and for deceptive reasons – and it obviously worked for the time.
