Admin Note

With the deepest respect and support to Viola’s career, due to the subject of the movie and the unjustified treatment of people of color in the United States, Simply VIola Davis has respectfully decide not to display any image from this particular project. This decision comes from reflecting upon Viola’s own thoughts about her involvement in this movie (“I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard. I know Aibileen. I know Minny. They’re my grandma. They’re my mom. And I know that if you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work for white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it. I never heard that in the course of the movie.” – from Vanity Fair); I respectfully take the distance from this project.
