On Episode Four of Table for Two, Bruce capitalizes on the element of surprise. Through a shared friend, he has learned that this week’s guest, Octavia Spencer, has a weakness for Trader Joe’s sangria and empanadas. So, like any good host, he makes sure that her preferences are handled. With their table at the Tower Bar nearly buckling under the weight of Trader Giotto’s delicacies, the Oscar-winning actress (The Help) talks about Season Three of Truth Be Told on AppleTV+, the importance of a tribe, moving to Los Angeles from Alabama with only $3,000 in her pocket, and why scrubbing the history books is the enemy of progress.
