"My takeaway from 2020…..Let your light SHINE…..without apology!!!!"
Being her most authentic self is one of the best traits of the "Triple Crown of Acting" winner, and she has never shied away from speaking her mind, especially in matters of inequality.
Aside from her strong opinions on inequality, [Davis] is a doting wife to her husband Julius Tennon.
Last year, a throwback interview of the "Suicide Squad" actress resurfaced, and fans were moved by Davis's powerful speech about self-worth, gender inequality, and the racial pay gap in Hollywood.
The 55-year-old's strong views were also portrayed in the movie "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," which is the 2020 adaptation of August Wilson's 1982 play about a blues singer named Ma Rainey.
The movie is set in 1920s Chicago and centered around the events that occurred on a hot summer day at the recording studio when Davis's character clashed with the record producers who were white men.
Aside from her strong opinions on inequality, the mother-of-one is a doting wife to her husband Julius Tennon and the lovely couple have unique ways to keep their romance alive.
"The Help" star told sources that she and her spouse spent their mornings together in the jacuzzi while at night they enjoyed a relaxing soak in the tub and used this calming period to discuss.
The iconic actress was raised in Rhode Island where she discovered her passion for acting in high school before moving on to earn a degree in theater from Rhode Island College.
Davis' Broadway debut occurred in 1996 when the 55-year-old portrayed the character, Vera, in August Wilson's tragic comedy "Seven Guitars." This role led the actress to bigger movies such as "King Hedley II" and "Doubt."
