    But she is not classically beautiful, let us call a spade a spade, but ugly people can be successful and nothing is more attractive than success.

      No that is not what Ellesaris is saying, I think she has a valid point, let us be frank, light or dark skin Viola is not easy in the eye. She does have a nice figure. Every woman has something that is attractive, it may not even be physical-maybe she is nice with a great personality. But she is NOT fine, I am sure her oyibo husband sees her differently.

    how can u call viola davis ugly, u yourself must be a goddess.

    having fair skin doesn’t mean you are beautiful. hollywood and america in general has defined black people’s beauty as light skin, long hair, big eyes. very euro centric,. which is terrible.

    viola davis is a stunning actress. two time oscar nominee and a tony award winner.any body who watches how to get away with murder will tell u.she is amazing at what she does.

    viola is in her 50’s and she looks good.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Black is beautiful.
    Strong is beautiful.
    Kind is beautiful.
    That’s what I know.
