We appreciate Octavia Spencertaking the time to really ponder our closing question.

The Oscar winner chatted recently with E! News' Marc Malkinabout her new film Gifted and, not only did we find out that charade nights at Chris Evans' house are epic, she also revealed a few of her favorite things while taking the E!Q in 42.

During the rapid-fire Q&A, Spencer proceeded to tell us something we had never heard before—and don't expect to hear again—when it comes to which member of the royal family she'd set her sights on if given the choice. In fact, we were so amused by all of her answers, we did something we've never done before with an E!Q. 

We let Octavia Spencer go into overtime. 

Believe us, though, it was worth it, as you'll see in the video above.

Meanwhile, when it comes to the themes addressed in Gifted—in which Spencer plays Roberta, a neighbor of Evans' "every guy" Frank and his prodigy niece Mary, played by Mckenna Grace—the actress serenely said that, in real life, she's "already gifted in what I need to be gifted in." Hence she has no use for super powers, though a little more talent in the cooking department wouldn't hurt.

Spencer also said that Grace reminds her of a young Natalie Portman—not a bad comparison for the already veteran actress, who at 10 has almost a dozen film credits to her name. "She has that spunk but the sweetness of Shirley Temple," she explained. "She's professional. It wasn't like working with a child actor, except you had to watch your language."

Gifted is in theaters now.
