Viola Davis was brought up in Central falls, Rhode Island. She describes herself as having lived in
object poverty and dysfunction during her childhood. But as the universe would have it, she took that pain and reality to the screen and stage. I had the pleasure in seeing her in the play "Fences" a long with Denzel Washington, which she won a Tony award and became the second African-American woman to win the award after Phylicia Rashad. I have come to the conclusions that no matter how many characters a celebrity plays or the appearance of their life in photos, they are just human beings having an earthy experience that I hope makes them happy!
