‘I Can’t Be Another Housekeeper:’ Viola Davis Narrowly Escapes Maid Role In New Film, ‘Beautiful Creatures’

February 7, 2013  |  

From Eur Web

In “The Help,” Viola Davis famously played a maid who discovers her own power.

Her new film “Beautiful Creatures” is based on a book in which her character Amma is also a maid – but with telepathic power.

All dark magic aside, the maid part of the deal, for Davis, caused initial hesitation in moving forward with the role.

“As soon as I saw that Amma was a housekeeper, my radar went up because of ‘The Help,’” Davis told us during interviews for the film last weekend in Los Angeles. “I said, ‘I can’t be another housekeeper.’”
