Viola Davis

Essence cover

5 Sep, 2013

violaDavis appears on theĀ coverĀ of Essence magazine to discuss parenthood, her film Prisoners, and being called ugly as a child. On having a child:

Five hundred million joys and a hundred million heartbreaks every single day.

And her image issues as a child:

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 own beauty.
