Viola Davis is opening up about what her daughter, Genesis, has put on her Christmas list this year.
The 55-year-old Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom star revealed to Jimmy Kimmel on his late night talk show this week that Genesis actually had some high hopes this year with her gifts.
However, Viola had to shoot down a lot of the items that were listed.
“She had things on that list where I had to say, ‘Let me tell you something, OK, Genesis? I don’t care how much money you think mommy has, 98 percent of the stuff on this list you’re not gonna get,’” she shared.
Viola recalled telling her nine-year-old that “‘You’re not getting that iPhone. You’re not getting that camera with the tripod on it. You’re not getting half the stuff on this list.”
“‘That’s the kind of mommy I am. Do you know how much that iPhone cost? $365 — do you have $365? Because I’m not spending that on a phone’,” she says.
Also this week, Viola opened up about the moment she learned of co-star Chadwick Boseman‘s death and said she “broke down”.
