Night Cap: Viola Davis On ‘Kimmel’

Shooting those crime scenes for How To Get Away With Murder can be dangerous, but not as perilous as those sex scenes.

When Viola Davis stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, she revealed that she injured herself while filming with her love interest Billy Brown.

“We really went for it. I said, ‘Listen, I’m always playing these maids. I always gotta gain 30 pounds for a role,'” she ranted. “I said, ‘I want to be sexy,’ so I went for it…and threw my back out.”

How’d she manage to do that?!

Well, after being slammed up against the wall and thrown across the room a few times, the 50-year-old was in pain.

Listen to her tell the entire story below.
