Viola Davis Reveals Why She Regrets Taking On Some of Her Movies

Viola Davis is on the cover of THR‘s Women in Entertainment issue.

Here’s what the actress had to share with the mag…

On how she views America: “I see America as that uncle who always gave you a whole lot of candy and treated you with the utmost respect and who you loved more than anything in the world, but who has a record for murder. That’s how I see America. I think that that is hard to reconcile, the messy with the love.”

On discovering who she is post-fame: “Now, at 53, I’m picking out what the pieces are. Literally. For instance, just an example, I’ve gained weight. Now, listen, I’m not a skinny Minnie. I’ve never been a skinny Minnie. I’m a yo-yo dieter. I’m always weighing myself. I always go to bed in a panic that I’m really heavy, I’m not pretty, I’m not this, I’m not that. But I don’t care about being pretty…I never cared about being pretty. I came to L.A., and all of a sudden, I care about being pretty because I feel like that is my way of being accepted into a larger community, coming from poverty, coming from a past of invisibility. Now, it’s like, I don’t care about that! And once I decided I didn’t care about that, I feel pretty good! I feel pretty good! It’s lightened my load.”

On admitting she’s taken projects she regrets: “I had the Oscar, I have two Tonys, I have the Emmy, I have a big house, and still — bam — unfulfilling. Then I realized it’s because I’m not living for significance and legacy. And this is a big one, and this sort of hurts a little bit: I’m finally admitting to myself that a lot of the jobs I’ve taken in the past, because I knew that they would further my career, have been things that I have not been proud of. They put more money in the bank, they raised my status, but at night they keep me up.” (If you don’t know, Viola recently said that she regretted taking on her role in The Help.)

Viola Davis Tells 'Fallon' Filming 'Widows' Was 'Best Experience' Of Her Life!

Viola Davis keeps it cool and casual in a blazer while arriving at the discussion for her film Widows held at 92nd Street Y on Tuesday (November 13) in New York City.

That same day, the Oscar-winning actress made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote Widows, which she called “the best experience of my life.”

“It’s about women getting the job done, it’s about us taking ownership of our lives,” Viola told Jimmy. “The best experience of my life by the way, Steve McQueen has got to be one of the greatest directors out there in every single way. Especially for a woman, he gives you permission to just be you.”

Viola also talked about her daughter inspiring her to write a new Corduroy book, and proves she is all of us when she owns up to going on a bender after just two days on a Widows cast and crew cleanse – Watch the interview below!
