Viola Davis: My Husband Encourages Me to Go Wigless

Posted on

Michael Tran/FilmMagic

Daughter Genesis is still getting used to seeing mom Viola Davis without her wigs, but the actress is covering up less and less these days, thanks to some encouragement from her husband.

Speaking to InStyle.com during a private dinner party in Los Angeles recently, Davis recounted a message from hubby Julius Tennon. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are,'” she said. “It’s a very powerful statement.”

Davis, who went au naturel recently for the Los Angeles Times magazine, said she’s not sure if she’ll revert back to wearing her fake hair anytime soon. “We’ll see,” she said. “I think I’ll change it up every once in a while. It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I’m spicing up my life a bit.” Tell us: Do you think Davis should go without her wig on Oscar night?
