Viola Davis Shares Why She Took The Wig Off

Viola Davis talks about why she chose to wear natural hair to the Oscars. Davis also discusses why Gabby Douglas’s hair was the topic of discussion.

Viola Davis had this to say about wearing her natural hair on the red carpet: “”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.”

    That was great! The headline was misleading, she was not apologizing at all but saying that she wants to be free who she is!!!
