    Viola Davis wants to produce

    The Help star Viola Davis is receiving accolades for her role in the film, but that’s not stopping her from broadening her horizons and seeking opportunities behind the camera.

    “I am doing this out of necessity,” she told L.A. Times magazine. “If I am not the instrument of change, I can meander through this business and be the Black woman who always has two or three scenes, but with fabulous actors around me.”

    Although Viola has been in the business for more than two decades, she said it took a part in the film Doubt to bring her to the attention of Hollywood bigwigs.

    “Suddenly something happens that wakes people up,” she said. “It makes people realize you’re there. Otherwise, you’re that Black girl who had a guest or co-star role in a TV show here or there.”

    Take a look at Viola’s fierce photos from the magazine below.
