Daughter Genesis is still getting used to seeing mom Viola Davis without her wigs, but the actress is covering up less and less these days, thanks to some encouragement from her husband.

Speaking to InStyle.com during a private dinner party in Los Angeles recently, Davis recounted a message from hubby Julius Tennon. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are,’” she said. “It’s a very powerful statement.”

Davis, who went au naturel recently for the Los Angeles Times magazine, said she’s not sure if she’ll revert back to wearing her fake hair anytime soon. “We’ll see,” she said. “I think I’ll change it up every once in a while. It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I’m spicing up my life a bit.” Tell us: Do you think Davis should go without her wig on Oscar night?

I think it is only woman here who are calling this woman beautiful. I have never heard a guy every say Viola is hot. She is not pretty people!!!

Viola Davis has a great husband, and he has given amazing advice to her. That what partners should do for each other. Viola, you look gorgeous au naturel without any wigs!

LPW on

Simply . . . gorgeous.

Hector. Which one is is? Beautiful, hot or pretty? I bet her husband thinks that she is all three. I would love for you to post a picture of yourself so we can judge you fairly. Beauty is subjective and clearly the posters on here look at Viola and think she is an attractive woman. She’s got great skin, amazing teeth and smile, and glittering eyes. You must be used to a blow up doll or something.

I meant to write, ” which one is it ? “

She looks stunning either way, but I prefer her natural hair. So flattering — and she looks younger, as well!

Looks even better!!!

I love it. She looks amazing. She should stop wearing wigs altogether.

She is so pretty with her natural hair. I really didn’t know her eyes were so big, beautiful and alive.
The wigs hid all of that gorgeousness. Tell hubby, I agree!
