Viola Davis Is Scared to Take On Her 'Suicide Squad' Role!

Viola Davis poses for photos with her three-year-old daughter Genesis while attending the GBK & Stop Attack Pre-Kids’ Choice Awards Gift Lounge on Friday (March 27) at the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood.

The 49-year-old actress recently opened up about taking on a role in the highly anticipated movie Suicide Squad.

“You know what that’s a tough one, but I would give it to Amanda Waller,” Viola told Entertainment Tonight. “I’ve been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I’m a little scared because she’s really unapologetic. She’s on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island — that’s just my opinion, Amanda!”

Viola Davis Went to School 'Always So Hungry & Ashamed'

Viola Davis shows a little shoulder in this gorgeous shot from her feature in the April 2015 issue of Glamour magazine, on newsstands March 17.

Here’s what the 49-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On going to school hungry: “I was always so hungry and ashamed, I couldn’t tap into my potential. I couldn’t get at the business of being me…It was like, If you don’t eat it now, it’ll be gone, and you’re going to be hungry for the next—Lord, who knows how long?”

On helping to raise over $4.5 million for the Hunger Is campaign: “This is the richest country in the world. There’s no reason kids should be going to school hungry. Food is something that everyone should have. It just is.”

On fully accepting who you are: “One thing that is missing from the vision boards is what happens when you don’t get what you want. Your ability to adapt to failure, and navigate your way out of it, absolutely 100 percent makes you who you are.”

On the memorable episode of How to Get Away With Murder in which she removes her makeup, eyelashes, and wig: “I’m finally comfortable with my story. And I finally understand what [mythologist] Joseph Campbell meant when he said: ‘The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.’”
