It is one of her most memorable roles to date and landed her an Academy Award nomination. Amazingly, though, Viola Davis now wishes she hadn’t starred in The Help. The actress has candidly revealed that she regrets appearing in the movie that helped to catapult her to stardom – for one very important reason.
Davis was born in St. Matthews, South Carolina, on August 11, 1965. She grew up in Rhode Island where she developed a love of acting. The star studied theater at Rhode Island College before attending the prestigious Juilliard School in Manhattan for four years.
