Va va voom, Viola! The Oscar-nominated star has said her daughter Genesis gets “weirded out, and now we see why: Davis is one hot momma under that extra hair!
In the interview, between cooing at her 19-month-old daughter and discussing her interest in producing and supporting black actors, she talks about growing up in Central Falls, Rhode Island.
“I never had a phone,” she says, and surprisingly adds she “never watched the Oscars” either.
But she will be there Feb. 26 and possibly go home with a Best Actress trophy. Will you be watching and rooting for her?
