Viola Davis shows off her stunning smile on the cover of InStyle‘s January 2016 issue, on newsstands December 11.
Here is what the 50-year-old How to Get Away with Murder actress had to share with the mag:
On marriage: “I’ve learned that it’s not always about you. Marriage is a dying to yourself, but [also this] renewing and being born into a state of commitment, of understanding the value of partnership in life.”
On African-American women in Hollywood: “Unwritten racial casting rules absolutely still exist. I’ve played many best friends, crack-addicted mothers, next-door neighbors, or professionals with no personal lives. It goes back to perception. There is a limitation to how we are seen.”
On aging: “What’s released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness. I’ve never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I’ve been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith.”
