Actress Viola Davis addresses the elephant in the room regarding her forthcoming film “The Help.”

There has already been frustration expressed from those who simply heard that two-time Academy Award nominee Viola Davis is playing a maid in her next movie – without knowing anything about her character from the book upon which the film is based.

But fans of the novel understand that Aibileen is a complex, multi-layered individual who ultimately puts her life and livelihood on the line, just by agreeing to tell her own truth about her life as a maid – all for a new book written by a white woman in town with far less to lose.
