Davis, who appeared in the 2011 movie "The Help," recently opened up about the role, sharing that she felt like she had betrayed herself for taking on the part.

The book written in 2009 was criticized for perpetuating a White savior narrative and the star said that she felt ashamed she was in the movie that "wasn't ready to tell the whole truth."

The actress revealed that she had grown up in poverty.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Davis has partnered with a cause that is close to her by working with "No Kid Hungry" to bring awareness to the hunger crisis.

The actress revealed that she had grown up in poverty, even sharing that she had been teased in school for her school lunches which made her want to get involved with the organization. She said:

"When all your money goes towards your rent, you don't have anything leftover or you never had it to begin with."

In addition to that, Davis was also involved in the Black Lives Matter movement, arranging a neighborhood demonstration for those who needed to be more mindful of their health.

Together with Yvette Nicole Brown, her husband Julius Tennon, and a handful of others, the group camped out on Laurel Canyon Boulevard to show their support for the cause.
