The Tresstastic: Viola Davis rocks TWA in LA Times Magazine

Screen shot 2012-02-04 at 23.07.25

Oscar-nominee Viola Davis rocks a TWA and looks stunning with it in a photo shoot for LA Times Magazine. Stun-ning!

Honestly love the overall look for her in this shoot but her hair and face is everything. The interview was interesting too and here’s a few highlights I picked out:

  1. She has a 19-month old daughter named Genesis. Beautiful name.
  2. LA Times name her “one of the most electrifying actresses of her generation.” Yay!
  3. On her move into film production, Viola says: “I am doing this out of necessity. If I am not the instrument of change, I can meander through this business and be the black woman who always has two or three scenes but with fabulous actors around me.”
  4. On the role that changed her career: “You can be in the business for 23 years, which I have been, and suddenly something happens that wakes people up. For me, that was being in a movie with Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman [Doubt]… It makes people realize you’re there. Otherwise you’re that black girl who had a guest or costar role in a TV show here or there.”
  5. A film she’s already looking into producing is “The Personal History of Rachel DuPree, a sweeping novel about an African-American woman struggling to farm the Badlands in 1917…” Looking forward to it.
