On The Cover: Viola Davis at LA Times Magazine



With the Academy Awards just days away, the name Viola Davis seems to be on the tip of everyone's tongue.While I am no stranger to Ms. Davis' engaging talent (guess who I am rooting for on Sunday night!), I was stunned when I came across these images of her from a photo shoot for LA Times Magazine.
I have never seen her look so radiant!

Emily,
The short hair really suits her, wish she would wear it like that all the time! Maybe we will get lucky and she will ditch the wigs on Sunday night!

Wow, she looks incredible! What a gorgeous photo shoot. I've been disappointed at some of the negative press she's received in regard to her role in "The Help." I think she brings great dignity and beauty to the role and the role is indicative of that era in our history. It's a shame some critics say that by playing that part, she's hindered the achievements of black actors. Best of luck to her at the Oscars!

Second Hand Rose,
In a sea of beauties with long manes and flowing locks, it's definitely refreshing to see someone looking so glam with short hair! Can you tell I am a big fan of pixies like Violas!

JMW,
unfortunately it's the negative nellies like those critics that hinder the accomplishments of black actors. Viola Davis did a wonderful job of portraying that character and telling the story that was written. If a white actress portrayed a character who was deemed an archaic stereotype for women, she wouldn't receive the same harsh criticism that Viola has. January Jones has been praised for her icy portrayal of Betty Draper in Mad Men but I have yet to hear anyone say she is bringing women down by playing a 'character' like that. Such a shame but hopefully that doesn't stand in her way Sunday night!
