Viola Davis 'prayed' for husband

Feb 14 2013, 11:25am CST | by

Viola Davis "prayed" for a husband weeks before she met Julius Tennon.

The 47-year-old 'Beautiful Creatures' actress used to feel like the "loneliest" woman in the world when she was single and thought she would never find happiness.

However, after taking advice from a friend to describe her perfect man, Viola met Julius less than a month later when they worked together on US TV show 'City of Angels' in 2000, and immediately bonded.

Speaking to The New York Post newspaper, Viola recalled: "I was the loneliest woman in the world, and someone said, 'You should just pray for a husband'.

"I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before. Three and a half weeks later, I met my husband.

"He was the anesthesiologist, Dr. Holly, and I was Nurse Lannett. We were passing blood in a scene. He knew how lonely I was. I was out in LA and I hated it and he said, 'I'll show you around Los Angeles. I'll show you around the Santa Monica pier.' "

Viola and Julius - who was a football player in college and has two sons from a previous marriage - will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary on June 23 this year and the couple describe their marriage as "magical".

Viola gushed: "We've been together 13 years, and from the first day, it was magic."

Julius added: "She's the sweetest woman. It's so great to see her be all of who she is. That's what I love about her."

The couple added a new member to their family when they adopted their two-year-old daughter Genesis in October 2011.

Fug the Show: How To Get Away With Murder recap, season 1, episode 4

Oct 21 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Go Fug Yourself

   Jessica and I recently concluded that Viola Davis’s performance is accomplished, yes, but also extremely curious — because she’s so AGGRAVATED-seeming all the time, as if she read the script and went, “Ugh, Annalise clearly hates all these morons.” Between that and the way she walks like her feet hurt, Annalise comes across less like a dynamic, compelling, Read Mor ...
