Oscar -nominated for the movie Doubt, Viola Davis is having a big year in Hollywood. She's currently promoting the feature film The Help.
In the mag, Viola talks about the struggles black women face saying,
“As Black women, we’re always given these seemingly devastating experiences -- experiences that could absolutely break us. But what the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls the butterfly. What we do as Black women is take the worst situations and create from that point…”
And Essence's press release states:
Award-winning actress Viola Davis is having the time of her life as one of Hollywood’s hottest stars. Despite her evident radiance and mind-blowing talent, she has had to come to grips with a culture that seldom makes dark-skinned women feel like “the chosen one.” However, during her recent successes—including her Oscar nominated performance in the film Doubt—she feels more like a “princess” now than ever before. As she anticipates the release of her new movie, The Help, Davis shares her story of growth and acceptance with writer Lola Ogunnaike.
