well? can he????
I said, “The only way I can play someone this hard is for something to be peeled away each week, and the first thing that needs to go is the wig.” I just wanted to deal with her hair. It’s a big thing with African-American women…You start when you’re just a young girl. Do you twist it? Do you leave it natural when it’s so hard to take care of? Then you start wearing wigs but every night before bed you’ve got to take the wig off and deal with your hair underneath. And it’s a part of Annalise that I needed the writers to deal with because I’ve never seen it, ever, on TV and I thought it would be very powerful. It’s part of her mask. - Viola Davis (x)
1d: *releases 50th album*
y’all: damn. i was really sure just can’t let her go would be on this album
*pretends to understand the movie reference you just made*
yeah, stay gold too, horse man…………………………whatever that means…………….
"She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful." (x)
This moment really resonated with me so much. So many people (especially other Black people) mocked this scene and Viola Davis’ worth, beauty, autonomy, experiences, and the representation her character embodies for Black women. And that ignorance reemphasized Viola Davis and many black women’s reality and actual struggle with feeling other-ed, being seen as one dimensional, and being seen as the bottom of the hierarchy of beauty standards. I hate that Viola was so empowered by getting this role and then hateful ignorant people exploited this moment on the show to belittle her with anti-Black jokes and referencing trope movie roles she specifically wanted to move away from (referencing: The Help, The Color Purple). Viola is a goddess and this moment on How to Get Away with Murder was revolutionary.
