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.
Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First
If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.
Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.
And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.
What I also loved were the new editions. Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman – and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.
Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.
Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne). But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
