Viola Davis may work designer gowns and major jewelry on the red carpet, but the Oscar nominee prefers a more laid-back look when she’s out of the spotlight. “I’m telling you, I have to keep it up,” the Best Actress nominee said of her glitzy public persona at yesterday’s Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon. “If only you guys could see me when I’m at home with my cornrows. I am not a glam woman,” Davis joked. “My biggest fear is that some paparazzi with some lens is going to come to my backyard and see me when I get in my pool. That would be very unfortunate.” We bet Davis looks great, even in her pool!
