Viola Davis Is Instilling A “Love Of Self” In Her Daughter

2012 WIF Crystal + Lucy Awards

Viola Davis‘ 2-year-old daughter Genesis sounds like a very independent little girl.

The Help star tells US magazine that she’s working hard “to instill in her a strong sense and love of self” in her daughter – a lesson that seems to be sinking in.

“When she plays with the little boys who want to kiss her, she’s slaps them and says, ‘No!’” Viola reveals. “So that’s good!”

The 47-year-old star adds, “She loves telling people her name. It’s a big one because at first she didn’t do that. She’s 2, so now when people say, ‘What is your name?’ she says, ‘My name is Genesis!’ And she screams it! She’s proud of her name!”

Genesis may have no interest in boys at the moment, but her Oscar-nominated mom has said in the past that she already has her eye on the perfect little guy for her daughter: Sandra Bullock‘s son Louis!

“Louis would be the one,” Viola decided, adding, “Sandra is the most loving, fun mother. Just fantastic!”

    I love this woman! I saw a pic of her daughter on BCK; such a gorgeous little girl.

    Sandra has a beautiful boy; he is spoting a new hairstyle now. Agree with Viola, Louis and Genesis would make a cute couple in 20 years time.

    She is showing her little girl that it is nice, right and OK to stand there with your boobs hanging out for the world to see…..according to her, this is what is right to show and teach her little girl! No modesty required!

Such harsh judgement from less than perfect people. STFU.

      You’re right, CaramelKiss is a much more respectable, personalized name. I’m sure that’s how it’s listed on your birth certificate. And if it is, well, I’m sorry.
