Viola Davis stepped out yesterday with her hair au natural, thanks to a little encouragement from her husband, Julius Tennon. “My husband wanted me to take the wig off,” the Best Actress Oscar nominee told us at the private Alfre Woodard dinner hosted by Grey Goose in Los Angeles. “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!’ It’s a powerful statement.” As for whether she’ll ever return to wigs, which she’s worn for years, she said: “We’ll see. I think I’ll change it up every once in a while. It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I’m spicing my life up a bit.” Either way, she looks beautiful!
