Hollywood is full of talented actors who can bring any story to life onscreen, and Viola Davis is undoubtedly one of them. But even after almost three decades of stunning audiences with her performances on television and in film, the actress still isn’t getting the respect — or the salary — that she deserves.

A video from 2018 is once again making its rounds around the internet, reminding the world just how underrated Davis is. The clip, taken from a conversation at a Women of the World event two years ago, shows the award-winning actress discussing the disturbing pay gap that occurs across gender and racial lines.

  Bryce Dallas Howard says she would not star in The Help if it was made today "Stories are going to play a crucial role in our ability to empathize and to be inspired into action."The Jurassic World actress appeared in the 2011 film that focuses on a white woman documenting the experiences of Black maids in her town, and recently advised people not to watch the movie if they wanted to educate themselves on racial injustice.

"I have to get on that phone and people say, 'You're a Black Meryl Streep There is no one like you.' Okay, then if there's no one like me, you think I'm that , you pay me what I'm worth."

“I got the Oscar, I got the Emmy, I got the two Tonys, I’ve done Broadway, I’ve done off-Broadway, I’ve done TV, I’ve done film, I’ve done all of it,” Davis reminded the audience.

“I have a career that’s probably comparable to Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Sigourney Weaver,” she continued onstage. “They all came out of Yale, they came out of Julliard, they came out of NYU. They had the same path as me, and yet I am nowhere near them, not as far as money, not as far as job opportunities, nowhere close to it.”

Davis, a Julliard alum, has been acting in Hollywood since the early 1990s. Her role in the 2008 period drama Doubt (alongside Streep) is widely considered her breakthrough performance, paving the way for other award-winning roles in projects like The Help, How to Get Away with Murder, Widows, and both the play and film adaptation of August Wilson’s Fences. Unfortunately, all of that talent and success still hasn’t amassed to an equitable path as a Black actress; the Shondaland lead’s career and coins are still being stifled by the forces that be.

James Gunn was told he could 'do whatever he wants' with any DC Comics' character

  James Gunn was told he could 'do whatever he wants' with any DC Comics' character James Gunn was told by Warner Bros. executives that he could do what he wants with any character from the DC Comics universe. Last year, the filmmaker was hired to helm The Suicide Squad, which is a loose sequel to David Ayer's original 2016 blockbuster, and filming finished just before the Hollywood shutdown amid the Covid-19 outbreak. In a Q&A on his Instagram Stories, Gunn was quizzed about the upcoming movie, which sees Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, and Joel Kinnaman reprise their roles, and revealed that when he was in early talks with Warner Bros. about helming the film, he was offered his pick of projects.

The video itself has gone viral with well over 3.5 million views, but the comments left by viewers are making the internet roll with laughter. Shelly DuVall humorously joked, “Is it wrong that I can do this and I’m not pregnant?” Thank you, Shelly, for making everyone spew coffee into their screens with

Last year, Davis’s net worth was an estimated $12 million (£9.6m), a total that is devastatingly low in comparison to Streep’s $150 million (£120m) or the $50 million (£40m) of Moore. The disparity is symptom of Hollywood’s refusal to pay people of colour (specifically Black women) what they deserve, a problem also reflected across various industries.

And Davis isn’t the only one — other Black Hollywood icons have talked openly about their struggle to be recognised for their celebrated bodies of work. Just months ago, Davis joined Mary J. Blige, Taraji P. Henson, Kimberly Elise, Halle Berry, Lynn Whitfield, and Angela Bassett in a conversation about being Black women in the industry for T Magazine. The discussion shone a light on the entertainment world’s history of singling out certain Black actresses as examples of diversity in an otherwise wholly-white space while simultaneously restricting their opportunities.

Viola Davis is receiving rave reviews as Veronica Rawlins in "Widows," a role that has put last year's Oscar winner for best supporting actress right back in the awards discussion. But there's another force on display in Davis ' portrayal of a grieving widow compelled to finish her dead husband's final heist.

“What I see Hollywood do is feature one or two of us, and they’ll ignore the rest of us like we don’t exist,” Elise, star of The Diary of a Mad Black Woman, shared. “It gives the illusion that we’re moving forward, but it’s really disempowering the collective.”

Hollywood has always had an equity issue, but in the climate we’re living in, the glaring inequality of the television and film industry seems more urgent than ever. Promises to put more people of colour in front of the cameras and behind the scenes as push for anti-racist representation sound nice, but they mean nothing without other actionable changes. Diversity efforts need to extend beyond just faces in a room (looking at you, Academy). There are a number of ways to address this history of systemic inequality, — we need more seats at the table, more opportunities to expand our professional portfolios, and a lot more money.

But first, let’s start with changing the way we talk about talent. Davis is a powerhouse of her own right, a theatre-trained actor with years of stage and screen experience under her belt. As such, she isn’t “the Black Meryl Streep.” She’s the Viola Davis, the woman whose onscreen breakdowns will reduce you to tears right in your own bedroom. And that should be more than enough reason to pay her exactly what she deserves.
