Viola Davis has had her share of steamy moments in the Shonda Rhimes hit series How To Get Away With Murder -- but the actress revealed in an Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance on Monday that she's put her foot down for the upcoming season and won't do any more physically taxing sex scenes.
"I told them no more sex scenes," the 51-year-old two-time Oscar nominee said. She humorously recalled one scene that left her injured, "They threw me up against the wall in the first season and I threw my back out for two weeks -- and my hip! So I limped around for two weeks and I said 'no more walls.'"
But Davis, who won an Emmy for her HTGAWM role last year, indicated that she might be up for sex scenes without a lot of movement involved. "I just want to be on a bed and I don't want to move. I don't want anyone on top of me and I don't want to be on top of anyone else," she joked.
The star also opened up about her 6-year-old daughter, Genesis, whom she adopted in 2011 with her husband, Julius Tennon.
"Her latest thing is Beyoncé," Davis said. And like all of us, Genesis wanted to go to a Beyoncé concert but Davis and her husband said no. "She said, 'You don't know what Lemonade means to me, Mommy! You don't know what Beyoncé means to my life!'"
