Her role opposite Meryl Streep as Mrs Miller in Doubt stopped me in my tracks. It took precisely 7 minutes and 41 seconds for her to become a cinema legend. She's that good. She is positively incandescent.

I have been in love with Viola Davis since the first time I saw her on a screen in "The Help". I thought the movie was ok but I told my wife that "Viola Davis" is a Superstar. So whenever she is on the screen, my wife says it's okay for me to have a crush on her. As you can guess, her crush is Denzel. 30 year Denzel, 40 year Denzel, 60 year Denzel....doesn't matter. Same goes for Viola Davis.

I've worn an Afro since the late 60s. My babies recognized me for my Afro. They smiled every time they looked at my face and hair. Especially my son. I'd still be wearing one but as I aged the hair on top of my head went straight. I hate that. My Afro made me feel free.
