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.

Hayden Panettiere covers her bump in Lorena Sarbu at the Emmys: pretty?

Aug 26 2014 9:50am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

When Hayden Panettiere was speaking to Giuliana Rancic during the E! pre-show she dropped a female pronoun in reference to her baby. Giuliana picked up on it, got all excited, and Hayden confirmed that she was having a girl. Later the other commentators, Kristin and Kelly, started gloating about how they had the exclusive that Hayden was having a girl and that Amanda Peet was pregnant. (Bedhead covered Peet here.) I don’t really get how it’s a big deal to find out a celebrity baby’s s ...

Will Chadwick Boseman get an Oscar nomination for ‘Get On Up’?

Aug 4 2014 9:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I went to see Get On Up over the weekend, and it was SO GOOD. And now I’m sort of obsessed with James Brown as a person, and with Chadwick Boseman as an actor. I’m including some photos from the NYC premiere of Get On Up, which happened a few weeks ago. Mick Jagger is in the photos because he produced the film, because he’d always wanted to tell the story of James Brown. Mick and James knew each other for a long time. They met in the ...
