VIOLA DAVIS COVERS ESSENCE MAGAZINE OCTOBER 2013

Viola Davis looks gorgeous on the cover of 'Essence' magazine.

Viola Davis wears an 'Oscar De La Renta' dress on the October 2013 cover of Essence.  Viola talks about the simple things in life and how she took her wig off because she was tired of apologizing for who she is.

Viola Davis’s husband is a pretty special guy. In fact, says the actress, he was heaven sent.
The Oscar nominee for The Help tells October’s Essence, on newsstands Friday, that she prayed for a certain type of man to come into her life – and then he did.
“I asked for a husband who was emotionally available, someone who was older, someone who maybe had a family before,” she says. “I like older men. Someone from the South. Someone who loves God more than he loves himself.”
And then, voila!
“I met my husband three and a half weeks later, an ex-football player from Austin, Texas,” says Davis, 48. “On one our first dates, he took me to church.”
Davis and actor Julius Tennon were married in 2003. They adopted a daughter, Genesis, in 2011.
Davis has spoken before about how her husband has encouraged her not to wear her wigs outside her professional life – and says now that taking off the wig is a powerful act.
“I had to defend myself as an artist, but I found myself defending myself as a dark-skinned black woman in front of people who did not know my life,” she says. “I took my wig off because I no longer wanted to apologize for who I am.”
“There is not one woman in America who does not care about her hair, But we give it too much value. We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other, we’ll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child’s hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair.”

It is a great interview and you guys should check it out.  The magazine is out already for those with a Next Issue App.
