The Widows actress made an appearance on Good Morning America on Tuesday (November 13).

During her appearance, Viola discussed the important advice her daughter Genesis gave her at just 5-years-old at the time after hearing her mother having a conversation on the phone with her manager.

“[We were] haggling over something and she said, ‘Mommy, put the phone down. I got to tell you, don’t let anybody put their life into your life. If they put their life into your life, you have to tell them to get out because they don’t have the pass-code,’” she said.

“I put the phone down and I said, ‘Genesis, say that again so I can write it down’…she teaches me a lot.”

Watch her appearance below!
