Actress Octavia Spencer has given up looking for love after failing to find her ideal man.
The Oscar-winning The Help star hasn't had much luck with dating and Spencer insists she is now letting fate take over.
She tells Elle magazine, "Let's just say I'm open for business. I used to obsess about it - and I have to keep kissing these frogs to find the prince. Well, you know what? I'm not looking for the prince. The prince is going to have to come looking for me."
But if things don't work out, the actress, who turned 40 in May, insists she has no problems starting a family on her own.
She adds, "I have to tell you, I started freaking out when, you know, our eggs are gonna die on the shelf! And I thought, 'Then it will mean the good Lord wants me to adopt if I get to the point where I can't have kids'. I'm no longer worried by the trappings of life."
