Viola Davis

Viola Davis reacted to one of the animated memes and GIFs featuring her no-nonsense TV character Annalise Keating. The clip from "How to Get Away with Murder" is one of the most popular memes on the Internet.

In an interview with Will King, Davis laughed when he showed her that GIF on his tablet. "That one I see all the time," she giggled. "I'm always thinking, 'when did I do that?'"

Davis added that Annalise "is not afraid to edit herself; she's not afraid to be unlikeable; she's not afraid to cuss somebody out; she's not afraid to be messy, ugly -- all of those things."

Watch the interview below.

    Listen ATL, what's going on with the voting suppression. They're saying the Republicans are putting 53,000 voter registration on hold, which 70% of them belonging to African Americans. Sandra you living in Atlanta, I would have thought you would make a post about this. Stacy Abrams is running after all, and I see these White Republican men are trying to be slick.

  • Renee26

  • Renee26

    Aunt Vi looked fierce in that interview... Afro poppin and getting her classy sexy on... I see you!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Viola was a PLEASURE to work with! The most down to earth star of her own show I ever experienced.

  • Dowoop

    I've been asking for the show names so I can check the credits. He been dropping these damn hints everywhere.

  • Chicagowise

    Viola Davis is a beautiful, talented, and intelligent woman. I love her to pieces! ?

  • WhoKnew

    If you'll notice @daughterofaqueen @KcoolMuziq is quick to name drop but will never answer anyone when asked what is it that he does or who he is. He just continues to drop names implying that he has worked with almost everybody in the business. I think he just likes to name drop for the hell of it to sound important because otherwise there is absolutely no reason to do it if you can't tie an association to it. IJS.

  • Nyla x

    Did you read my post? I guess you had too many happy hour drinks on this Friday? I was actually complimenting you on your comment. Damn, girl, what you on?

    Pssst. Guess what. I'm going to give you a hint. The word "kudos" means in so many words "good job". I was giving you a compliment on doing a good job on describing Viola. Wow and wow. I guess you're not used to anyone saying "good job" unless it's spelled out so it flew over your head. Hmmm. One flew over the cuckoo's nest I see.

    he is currently in therapy for name-dropping and i notice he has been getting better because there are at least three posts over the past week or so where he does not name drop. i hope he is not relapsing though.
