Viola Davis and Octavia Specer are breathlessly stunning in W Magazine. Styled by the uber-talented Edward Enninful, The Help stars are featured in the “Best Performances” editorial, photographed by Mario Sorrenti. According to Beauty Is Diverse, Viola wears a sexy yet regal look by Dolce & Gabbana in the beautiful shot.
In the spread, Viola opens up about being typecast: “No matter what, people don’t think of me for glamorous parts. I’ll go to an audition or a meeting in a pretty dress, and they still think of me as depressed or embattled. Hopefully, that will change.”
Golden Globe winner Octavia Spencer compares her cooking skills to The Help character, Minny: “I don’t know how to cook or bake or prepare anything in the kitchen, and my character, Minny, is a fantastic cook. That was the hardest part of playing her. I don’t know how to do anything other than get a plate from the cabinet and stick something in the microwave.”
