Fans Outraged at New York Times for Calling Viola Davis & 'Darker-Skinned' Women 'Less Beautiful'

Twitter exploded this morning when an article surrounding Viola Davis and her new role in How to Get Away with Murder was published on the New York Times website and included some very poorly worded phrases.

“Ignoring the narrow beauty standards some African-American women are held to, Ms. Rhimes chose a performer who is older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful than Ms. Washington, or for that matter Halle Berry” the article stated, which caused fans to explode after saying that darker-skinned women are “less classically beautiful.”

Viola is a gorgeous and incredibly talented actress known for her work in Doubt, The Help, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby series, and many more.

Angelina Jolie has just signed on to direct the new film Africa, a drama centering around paleo-archeologist Richard Leakey, THR reports.

The 39-year-old actress will take on the film about the “fossil hunter who helped find bones of early man but later turned his attention to combating elephant and rhino poaching.”

“I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and responded immediately to Eric’s beautiful script about a man drawn into a violent conflict that leads him to discover his own profound connection to that same place and people,” Angelina said in a statement.

Angelina Jolie Doubled the Number of British Women Getting Screened for Breast Cancer

Angelina Jolie Doubled the Number of British Women Getting Screened for Breast Cancer

It was just announced that Angelina Jolie has single-handedly inspired enough women in England to visit breast cancer clinics for screenings that the number has doubled since she announced her brave double mastectomy last year.

“The Angelina Jolie effect has been long-lasting and global, and appears to have increased referrals to centres appropriately,” a medical team from the University of Manchester told the BBC.

Angelina Jolie stating she has a BRCA1 mutation and going on to have a risk-reducing mastectomy is likely to have had a bigger impact than other celebrity announcements, possibly due to her image as a glamorous and strong woman,” Prof Evans, head of the team, said. “This may have lessened patients’ fears about a loss of sexual identity post-preventative surgery and encouraged those who had not previously engaged with health services to consider genetic testing.”
