Actress Viola Davis Says 'God Has Blessed Her Life In Abundance’ At Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony


Actress Viola Davis got the first new star of 2017 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday and she is feeling grateful to God.

Considered an Oscar frontrunner for best actress for her role in Fences, she said her life is “blessed.”

"I cannot believe my life right now,” wrote the excited celebrity, 51, on Instagram early Friday, Jan. 6.

At her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, the two-time Oscar nominee got emotional when thanking her husband Julius Tennon and daughter Genesis Tennon. She was also honored by Doubt co-star Meryl Streep, who calls her "the most immediate, responsive artist."

“It's like my life flashing before my eyes and all I can say is God has blessed my life in abundance,” wrote Davis in her social media caption about the momentous occasion her family attended.

Though she is currently beaming with joy and bursting with pride, the wife and mother remembers a time when life didn’t feel quite this blessed.

According to a Christian Post report, at Variety's 2014 Power of Women Luncheon where she was honored for her work with the Hunger Is campaign, the philanthropist said, “Although my childhood was filled with many happy memories, it was also spent in abject poverty. I was one of the 17 million kids in this country who didn't know where the next meal was coming from, and I did everything to get food."

The now successful and revered actress recalled, "I've done everything to get food. I have stolen for food. I have jumped in huge garbage bins with maggots for food.”

Now that those days are behind her, the Emmy Award-winning “How to Get Away with Murder” star told USA Today following the ceremony, “I feel great as a woman. I feel like I’m at a point where I’m owning my power and I’m owning my story. I’m owning my beauty. I’m owning my joy. I’m owning my hard work.”

Davis added, “I’m standing in front of people and I can say that I’m not the best of anything, but I deserve whatever I get because I’ve worked hard for it. So, I feel wonderful.”
