Open Post: Hosted By Viola Davis’ Juice Cleanse Fail

November 15, 2018 / Posted by:

Viola Davis was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night to promote Widows. She says that during filming, they had a makeup artist on set who encouraged everyone to take part in a 28-day cleanse. The only food they could consume had to be sipped, since chewing and sucking were forms of “aggression.” To be honest, aggressive sucking sounds like a whole lot of people’s idea of a good time, but apparently not for that makeup artist. Viola says she decided to participate, because she wanted to release her anger.

“This was going to be a game changer for me. We had to do it for 28 days. I lasted for two days. I was in the damn Jacuzzi one day and my niece called, and she pissed me off so damn bad…I went upstairs, ate a hamburger. Went to the drive through at McDonald’s. Couldn’t drink alcohol, had a big thing of vodka with soda water and lemon.

And the next day, [the makeup artist] was like, ‘Now Viola, how is it all going?’. I said, ‘I don’t have time for this. I need my anger, I’ve got a chip on my shoulder, I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder, and it works for me. Because if I don’t let this stuff out, I’m going to blow up.'”

Viola should have seen this one coming. If she didn’t mess around with the on-set shenanigans of Jared Leto, what makes her think she could deal with hunger for a month? Her response to that cleanse was the same as I had when I tried to do a week-long juice cleanse. I too managed two days, and drove myself straight to McDonald’s to eat three cheeseburgers in a parking lot. Hmmm…I think we just discovered McDonald’s newest potential marketing strategy.
