Viola Davis is well known from her recent movie in the 2011 movie The Help. Of course she has acted in other movies like Doubt, Solaris, Disturbia. Which for me, those roles had her looking plain Jane, she looked older than what she really was, and it put her in certain category of movies. But seeing Viola Davis on the cover of Essence Magazine this month, really allowed me to see her in a different light and the interview she did with Vanessa K. Bush at Essence really allowed me to get a little in Viola's world to see what kind of person she is.
The Interview with Essence Magazine:
On issues of self-esteem:
"My image of myself as a youth was in the mouths of young white kids calling me ugly, and then going home to a mother who did not fully embrace her beauty."
|The Help (2011)|
"There's not one woman in America who does not care about her hair, but we give it way too much value. We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other, we'll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child's hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair."For more on behind the scenes with Essence Mag and Viola Davis, visit Essence.com
Viola Davis 48 & Fabulous: On Going Natural and Praying for a ManNecolebitchie: Viola says,
I only wear wigs when I work.
"I had to defend myself as an artist, but I found myself defending myself as a dark skinned black woman in front of people who did not know my life. I took my wig off, because I no longer wanted to apologize for who I am."

I Prayed for a Husband.
"I asked for a husband who was emotionally available, someone who was older, someone who maybe had a family before. I like older men. Someone from the South. Someone who loves God, more than he loves himself. I meet my husband three and half weeks later, an ex football player from Austin, Texas, named Julius Tennon. On our first date, he took me to church. Viola and Julius were married in 2003 and adopted a daughter in 2011."
