"As a young girl, I wasn't always told that I was smart, beautiful, or worthy," the 54 year old said in a statement accompanying the announcement.

"I worked tremendously hard to get where I am today, overcoming feelings of doubt to become a woman who truly believes I am 'worth it' in every way. I believe it's so important to build confidence in women from a young age... To now be part of a brand that has been championing women's worth for more than 40 years and to use my voice to help empower others is truly surreal."

Viola joins a roster of diverse spokespeople, including Celine Dion, Dame Helen Mirren, Eva Longoria, Elle Fanning, Aja Naomi King, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Camila Cabello, among others, who have represented L'Oreal Paris.

The Fences star will appear in TV, print and digital advertising campaigns for Age Perfect, beginning later this month.

The 'Fences' star was seen wearing a pair of Stella McCartney Britt Gold Metallic Platform Derby Shoes (retail $975). Davis, 51, said she feels extremely “blessed” after growing up in a "rat-infested and condemned" apartment. "I was the kind of poor where I knew right away I had less than everyone around me,” she recalled in the new issue of People magazine. “We had nothing... I cannot believe my life (now). I just can’t. I’m so blessed.”
