Meet Essence magazine’s new cover girl, Viola Davis.

During an exclusive interview for the publication’s October issue, the Prisoners’ actress opens up about being a new mom.

The actress describes motherhood as “five hundred million joys and a hundred million heartbreaks every single day.” The 48-year-old also revealed the she wants her two-year-old adopted daughter, Genesis, to have confidence, and of all things, embrace her hair.

“There’s not one woman in America who does not care about her hair. But we give it way too much value. We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other, we’ll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child’s hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair,” Davis told the publication.

Davis and her husband Julius Tennon adopted Genesis in 2011. Their daughter is the couple’s first child together.

For the full interview with Davis, be sure to pick up Essence’s October issue on stands Friday.

Don’t believe us just watch!
