Can’t stop, won’t stop. Viola Davis is something like an it girl these days with her hit television show, an Emmy win for that hit television show and even her philanthropic efforts have made her the one to watch.

So it only makes sense, that she’s snatching magazine covers.

Davis will appear on the January issue of InStyle magazine where she talks about not feeling like a celebrity, superstar when she’s running after her daughter Genius.

“Taking care of a 5-year-old, cooking at home and running to the set when you’ve had four hours of sleep, you don’t feel like a movie star. Then, every once in a while, you put something on that makes you feel cute.”

It’s hard to find time to time to be concerned about clothes when you and your daughter spend so much time in outer space…in their imaginations of course.

“We go into space. We explore different planets,” Davis says of the game Genesis is most currently fond of. “This ship is in danger. We almost died at one point. We lost oxygen.”

In fact, she said the compared to her character Annalise Keating, “I have absolutely no style.”

Her style is so simple when she first married her husband Julius Tennon, of 13 years, she wore a skirt from Express. A few years later, they exchanged vows again where she wore a more traditional gown. In their upcoming vow renewal she plans to wear a custom dress by Carmen Marc Valvo.

Lastly, she explained why she’s not afraid of getting older.

“What’s released me most from the fear of aging is self-awareness,” she says. “I’ve never determined my value based on my looks or anything physical. I’ve been through a lot in life, and what has gotten me through is strength of character and faith.”
