Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are serving holiday magic on the December issue of Essence magazine.
Inside the issue, Viola, who first worked with Denzel on his directorial debut, Antwone Fisher, gushed about how amazing he was as the director of Fences.
It’s not always that a director can say one thing that unlocks a scene when you’re blocked, especially with a scene that you’ve done so many times, but Denzel did that time and time again. He has a huge honesty gauge, so when he asked me to trust him, I did.
Fences tells the story of an African American father’s struggles with race relations in the United States while trying to raise his family in the 1950s and coming to terms with the events of his life.
In addition to their gorgeous cover together, the Fences stars have their own solo covers.
Fences opens in theaters on Christmas Day. Do you plan to see it?
