Life needs to be about something bigger

Viola Davis, 46, and her husband, actor Julian Tennon, announced that they have adopted a newborn baby girl named Genesis.  This is the first child for the couple. (Tennon has two children from previous relationships.)  Viola’s comments, made at Starz’s 15th annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala in Los Angeles:

It’s giving me purpose,” said a beaming Davis. “After a while, your life cannot be about hair and make-up and what film you’re doing next. It’s got to be about something bigger and larger. Especially when half your life is already gone and you look back at what are you leaving behind. For me, it’s a child. That truly is the key.”
