"God has blessed my life in abundance" - Viola Davis gets emotional as she accepts Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Posted by Sidney, 09 Jan

We need to offer some pretty enormous congratulations to Viola Davis right now, as she has just been awarded with a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The first person of the year in fact, which is a huge honour in itself! What a great way to kick off 2017!

Viola attended the ceremony in the chicest white Christian Siriano ensemble, but it was her emotional acceptance speech which really stood out for us…

"Only thing I could think about is my dad,” she began. “I wish he were here. He died in 2006 and, um, he would think this is pretty fantastic."

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Her star was presented to her by none other than multiple Oscar winner and her ‘Doubt’ co-star Meryl Streep – something which Viola Davis was more than a little bit excited about…

"I cannot believe my life right now … that Meryl Streep spoke at my Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony with my handsome husband and a beautiful daughter and my family and my representatives … all I can say is, 'God has blessed my life in abundance.'"

Aww – is the just the cutest, or what?

Congratulations again, Viola – a truly well-deserved honor!
