Viola Davis Talks Natural Hair On Red Carpet At Essence Women In Hollywood Luncheon

I loved to hear Viola Davis talk about her natural hair. I secretly think she is going to wear her hair out and natural for the Oscars this weekend. Wow! Just listening to Viola Davis speak about her hair and how she didn’t feel comfortable at first really shows alot about Hollywood.

Today, she was on the red carpet for Essence’s Black Women In Hollywood luncheon!

Red Carpet host Tanika Ray immediately starts asking Mrs. Davis about her natural hair! She explained her husband told her to be comfortable in who she is. She didn’t feel brave until this year. (Check out her L.A. Times pictures rocking her natural hair here)

“I did feel very powerful. More secure in who I am. I waited so long for that feeling.”

Check out her interview and just seeing her speak with such passion about being comfortable in her own skin!

  • Enjoyed the whole broadcast. Thanks for posting. Viola Davis’ hair is the business. I love it. It IS a winner. I commend her for freeing herself.

  • Hats off to Ms Davis for stepping into her own and having the support of her husband is awesome. When you become empowered within yourself that radiates to all areas of your life. Great interview!!!
