Last quote by Viola Davis

I say, You gotta wear your hair exactly the way it is. You can be Wonder Woman, but you gotta be Wonder Woman with your hair. You can be Elsa, but you gotta be Elsa with your hair. If someone had told me that just time and time again … oh, my God! I would've had a completely different childhood. And my childhood was good, even with all the pain and poverty. But it would've been even better.feedback

I run, I do weights. I'm very toned. I'm like every other woman. I'd love to be 10 pounds or 20 pounds lighter. If I'm not, I'm OK with that, too. I'm good as long as I'm healthy.feedback

It's hard to accept being a role model for women when you're trying to lose weight. When I was handed Annalise Keating [of HTGAWM] I said: 'She's sexy, she's mysterious … I'm used to playing women that [I] have to gain 40 lbs. [for] and wear an apron. So I said: 'Oh, I've got to lose weight, I've got to learn how to walk like Kerry Washington in heels.' And then I asked myself: 'Well, why do I have to do all of that?feedback

Just like we have to redefine strength, we have to redefine beauty. It's not even about beautiful, it's about being who you are. It's about being honest. It's about stepping into, This is how I am in private, this is how I look, this is how I act, this is my mess, this is my strength, this is my beauty, this is my intelligence,' and then putting it out there that this is who I am.feedback

Mar 03 2017

It was great, but it was not fulfilling. I wanted my life to mean and be something deeper. That's when the urge came, and the urge was just very, very, very, strong. So I have a kid now and she is just the light of our lives.feedback

We deserve to be in the canon, in the center of any narrative that's written out there. And that's what August did. He elevated my father, my mother, uncles, who had 8th and 5th-grade educations. He just encapsulated them in history. So thank you, August.feedback

I always separate the message from the messenger. I think we've seen extraordinary human beings in the past; everyone from Martin Luther King to Joseph Campbell – I love all of his books, (such as) 'The Hero with a Thousand Faces' – who led very questionable personal lives.feedback

During the course of promoting this movie and having to kind of defend my choices in playing a maid in 1963 Mississippi, in 2011 I've had to find my voice. I've had to find my voice as a woman of colour, an artist.feedback
