Viola Davis Says She Regrets Her Role in ‘The Help’

Viola Davis has some surprising feelings about her award winning role in the 2011 drama The Help.

In a recent Q&A with The New York Times, Davis revealed: “Almost a better question is, have I ever done roles that I’ve regretted? I have, and The Help is on that list,” she said. “But not in terms of the experience and the people involved because they were all great. The friendships that I formed are ones that I’m going to have for the rest of my life. I had a great experience with these other actresses, who are extraordinary human beings. And I could not ask for a better collaborator than Tate Taylor.”

“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,” the 53-year-old Academy Award winner said. “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.”
