VIOLA DAVIS ON GENESIS: ‘I DON’T WANT HER TO BE A PASSIVE CITIZEN’

Viola Davis is raising her daughter to be a contributing member to society. The Oscar-nominated actress recently revealed that she wants Genesis,2, to stand out instead of merely fitting in. “It is a combination of the education she will be getting at school and the education she will be getting in terms of tapping into her voice and her authentic self. I do not want her to be a passive citizen.”

Davis talked about her experiences as a child saying, “I didn’t have a sense of security growing up. I grew up in dysfunction [and] in poverty, and it took me years of therapy to make up for all the years that I had lost.”

Now fully confident in who she is, Viola works hard to protect her daughter from the perils of life. “I am just feeling like a bull in terms of protecting the security, the innocence [and] the power of having a beautiful child full of joy. It means everything to me,” said the actress.

Viola stars in new movie “Won’t Back Down”, which comes out in theaters this fall.
