Viola Davis says she regrets her role in The Help

Oscar winning actress,Viola Davis recently revealed to the New York Times at the Toronto Film Festival on Tuesday.After the HTGAWM actress was asked roles she regretted doing .she said;
“Have I ever done roles that I’ve regretted? I have, and ‘The Help’ is on that list,” Viola Davis told the New York Times at the Toronto Film Festival Tuesday. As part of a slew of questions submitted by Times readers, Davis shared personal ruminations on her career, including the constant pressure to be a beacon of hope for women of color. “Being that role model and picking up that baton when you’re struggling in your own life has been difficult,” she said, but “I choose to be the leader.”

“I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard,” she said. “I know Aibileen. I know Minny. They’re my grandma. They’re my mom. And I know that if you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work for white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it. I never heard that in the course of the movie.”

She also commended her co-stars;
“The friendships that I formed are ones that I’m going to have for the rest of my life,”  “I had a great experience with these other actresses, who are extraordinary human beings. And I could not ask for a better collaborator than [director] Tate Taylor.”

Viola Davis talk about new movie 'Widows' on the cover of Variety

Viola Davis,53 sizzle on the cover of Variety magazine as she discuss new movie,Widows directed by McQueen which also stars Gillian Flynn. Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo, and Elizabeth Debicki. She said;
“I have issues with stories of people who just get out of bed and start robbing banks,” “As an actor, I needed to know what would drive a seemingly together woman to do this, and it always starts with someone reaching bottom.”

 “This kind of role isn’t usually out there for a woman of color,” says Davis. “Widows” is a female-driven enterprise, offering up meaty roles for Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Erivo and Elizabeth Debicki, who play the other members of a gang of widows who must pull off a heist in order to pay their husbands’ debts to a drug dealer.

“People try to be too nice with women,” suggests Davis. “They keep them pretty. They keep them likable. They cater to male fantasies. They cater to the male gaze. This film didn’t do that.”

The How to get away with murder actress also talked about being a woman of colour in Hollywood;
“There are no percentages to show the difference,” says Davis. “It’s vast. Hispanic women, Asian women, black women, we don’t get paid what Caucasian women get paid. We just don’t. … We have the talent. It’s the opportunity that we’re lacking.”

Love her in HTGAWM and i get wait to see this movie. She is a brilliant actress.
