The upcoming film "Fences" is getting all the Oscar Buzz, so it's only right stars Viola Davis and Denzel Washington take over as cover stars....


Viola flossed her natural 'do on the December 2016 cover of Essence magazine, out on newsstands today.  The fab Oscar nominee is back in the Oscar hot seat.  Her and fellow co-star Denzel Washington's new film adaptation of the Broadway production of "Fences" -- they both starred in during the 2010 revival -- is about to take over.

She gushed about her sexy co-star and director (he could still get it, by the way) Denzel:

“It’s not always that a director can say one thing that unlocks a scene when you’re blocked, especially a scene that you’ve done so many times, but Denzel did that time and time again. He has a huge honesty gauge, so when he asked me to trust him, I did…”

The Oscar winning 61-year-old is taking this role just as seriously as we would expect:

“August Wilson is a master and Fences is a masterpiece…What’s most important to me is that I take care of his words and his will for this play…”

The movie, which is spurn from the 1983 original August Wilson Broadway production, is quite timely.  It explores the evolving African-American experience and examines race relations.   The film hits theaters Christmas Day.
