Viola Davis on Being Called "Less Classically Beautiful": You Won't "Erase" Me

"I think that beauty is subjective. I’ve heard that statement (less classically beautiful) my entire life. Being a dark-skinned Black woman, you heard it from the womb. And "classically not beautiful" is a fancy term for saying ugly. And denouncing you. And erasing you.
Now…it worked when I was younger. It no longer works for me now. It’s about teaching a culture how to treat you.” -Viola Davis

Article on Avan’s Rise To Fame Launched By Tut

diggingdacey:

Nice article on how Avan is moving up the ladder of celebrity and is on the brink of becoming a huge star on the big screen. Also a mention of him “hanging” out with Kylie and others on the King Tut set. He supposedly has also released some more BTS pics of the movie.
