found on lipstick alley and I think it's interesting I copiedas is!
 
"You are black and you’re a woman — and you’re dark-skinned at that — so you have to be a quadruple-triple threat and you know, a lot of actors are not actual actors, they are movie people or whatever it is. I said, you have to learn how to act, dance, sing, move on stage, that is the only place you learn how to act, in my humble opinion. Look at Viola Davis. That’s who you want Viola Davis. That’s who you want to be. Forget about the little pretty girls; if you’re relying on that, when girls; if you’re relying on that, when you hit 40, you’re out the door. You you hit 40, you’re out the door. You better have some chops.”

Am I missing something? When did Viola Davis become ugly, is she not a "pretty girl" Boy I tell you colorism is a motha. I get what he is saying but still it sounds hella harsh.

he speaks in first min

 
 
Do you agree that he was harsh?

when did Viola Davis become ugly?  the real question is when did she become attractive?  she isn't even considered pretty enough to play a black woman [Nina Simone] who looks like her.

I mean I get what he's saying

Hollywood isn't gonna welcome with open arms a dark skin black women unless they have to. Unless her talent shines have the rest. In.ess she has some sort of "it" actor.

And even then it's gonna be tough.

So if she wants to get in the biz she needs to be a step above the rest.

I agree. I dont think he was calling her ugly. I think he was saying the people who the industry and fans go crazy over mainly because of their looks, the ones defined as 'pretty,' are the ones whose careers done last.

This shouldnt be an issue. Not only that, its what he said he would tell his daughter (according to the text in the OP), so it is what it is....even if you dont agree with it.
