While you folks in NYC were braving winter storm Stella and my neighbors here in Nashville were freaking out over five flakes of snow, Viola Davis was living it up this morning in sunny Rome.
Yesterday, Davis posted a family portrait (captioned with the Italian flag emoji) starring her best vacation pals: her husband Julius Tennen and 6-year-old daughter Genesis. Granted, Italy looks pretty chilly in this particular pic, so we weren't that jealous yet — but today Davis one-upped her own Roman holiday photo with a shot of the trio basking in the spring sunshine at the Trevi Fountain. Now we're jealous. At least the actress and her family wisely chose not to keep up with Kendall; they refrained from walking on the Trevi in heels.
But these aren't your average Euro-trip buddies — this family has a majorly strong bond. "To my husband and my daughter," Davis said in the aforementioned Best Oscar Acceptance Speech Ever. "My heart. You and Genesis, you teach me every day how to live, how to love. I'm so glad that you are the foundation of my life." (We're not crying; you're crying.)
In the same speech, Davis explained that she "became an artist and thank god I did because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So here's to August Wilson who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people."
