Meryl Streep Donates Money To School In Viola Davis' Honor

Filed under: InspirationEducational

So generous!

Oscar winner Meryl Streep did something super nice for her fellow Best Actress nominee, Viola Davis.

She donated a $10,000 check to the Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts in honor of Viola who grew up in Central Falls, Rhode Island and has been supporting the school through her moral and financial help.

Recently, the building that houses the school has been in trouble. It's been scheduled to be sold for $1.2 million within the next 12-13 weeks, but hopefully, with the help of Viola, and now Meryl, the school can remain.

School founder Angelo Garcia said:

"We've just been screaming from the rooftops. [Viola has] always kept us on her radar."

Great work, ladies! Education is oh so important and you're just helping to make the world a better place.

Also, this should soften the blow of losing that Oscar to Meryl, right, Viola? Ha!

Viola Davis' Mom Won't Watch The Help

Filed under: Film FlickersFamily

Viola Davis

Viola Davis's mother can't watch her daughter's Oscar nominated performance in The Help. She says the content of the film is too "painful."

Viola says the film's story hits too close to home to her mother, who grew up in the segregated South. The actress admitted:

"My mother has yet to see the movie… I think it's just because — I think it's painful. You have a whole generation of women who don't want to be reminded of the past."

So Sad!

Viola said when she asked her mom for stories, to help prepare for her roll, she didn't even want to talk about it. The actress said the only info her mom gave her was:

"My grandmother was treated very cruelly by her employers."

Davis should be so proud of her work on The Help.

Even if her mother hasn't seen it, we're sure she's proud of her too.
