"Every time someone says, it does mean something you're in a club with Meryl Streep and some of your other idols and now people were friends of yours. What does it mean to be in that sort of elite club? You may not think of it that way but people on the outside certainly do. Has It changed your life's I. Know It's changed your career I'm sure. But does it change your life to be Oscar winner Viola Davis. Yeah. It's changed my life to be Oscar winner to. Be On a TV show the TV, show really out on my life even more than the Oscar, tell you the truth. Everything is. All of it as the money all of it I remember someone saying you know if you're not poor anymore I was like. You didn't know what that information is but. Yeah it's. It's totally but I'll tell you what it's probably more of transformation to people who observe my life in me being in it right me being in it I don't know the viola that you talk about.

And you know in terms of me getting through my everyday life and certainly living a meaningful life it. Doesn't play a role except for the power of influence. Which is what I'm doing here the power of influence is. I will say that the power to literally stand up on the stage and have people listen to you when you're coming from a pass when one saw you know one listened to you. So it's like now, what do you WanNa? Say What do you want to do you know? Helps that you have such a presence to a lot of people have the platform, but they can't deliver it.

Is that part of being an actor been comfortable on a stage? Well well. Comfort is like a dirty word for an actor. You know that they tell you not right for comfort right to be uncomfortable in the moment you're alive and all that you're not afraid of the spotlight on stage clearly well. Sometimes I am but.

"Of getting. And then you win a Tony for King Hedley win another Tony for fences and now you're sort of like the queen of Broadway. For that time. I mean that must have been an extraordinary thing for somebody who? was playing church basements to start her career. It was an extraordinary thing. You know to dream the biggest dream you can possibly imagine in your life and having. No kind of foresight of how that was going to happen, and then all of a sudden it happens. You. You you. You sort of hit. It's sort of like magic. And it speaks to the power of. Belief and hope. And Hard? Work. but life doesn't end there. I always say the three most important words that happens especially after you have big old trophy in your hand or anything the three most important words are and now what? And now what what's the next thing? What's the next chapter. Denzel. Always says Denzel has the best quotes by the way I don't mean out on. I would you Says there's no u-haul haul in the back of a hearst. You sort of can't take it with you. And wants to hit it. You realize it's like Oh my God. I got an Oscar. Your heart is about to tasting and then you go home and then you sit down and then the next day and it's like. And how what? What's the next page and That's sort of where I'm at right now What was it like to jump into movies from the stage given the fact that you built your whole career on stage work What are a movie set feel like to? I started doing like speaking another Land Land Right Speaking Mandarin at Mandarin movie once and they cut it out I'm so glad I did it it was so hard to two months to learn one sentence that's what it was like make like learning mandarin it was a black hat. And I thought it was so good. Go to my friends who Chinese and say I'm going to say something to you and they would say. But it was like speaking man is just a completely different world and it completely different world. I mean I always say all you have to do in a movie is sustainable performance for thirty seconds. That's it. That's as long as eight glass. So you got thirty seconds. All right. When you on stage you can have a twelve page scene and there are no edit buttons. There are no cuts and that's just one scene. I've been I've done plays where I've done them for year six seven months and you're onstage the entire time. Thirty seconds to sustain the performance. So it was much different and you're acting opposite someone like Merrill Street. So you're standing there going I'm good. I'm really good. I'm good I. Know This street. But I'm Viola Davis. And then you're acting opposite her and you're thinking Oh my God. Oh my God it's Meryl..

Roaches. In the House you'll hear all about it. Counting only on her school lunch for a meal every day to rise from that place to where she is now is an incredible story and you're going to hear every bit of it. She went to the juilliard school she went on became a Tony winning actress on Broadway and then worked her way onto Hollywood's a-list with breakout roles in the help, and then an Oscar winning performance alongside Denzel. Washington. Inferences not to mention starring role in a hit TV show that earned her an emmy how to get away with murder. Interesting to hear viola talk about fame still kind of uncomfortable with it knows how fleeting it is and talks about giving back and doing the important things with her platform among them her latest project, a documentary called a touch of sugar. It's about the diabetes crisis in our country. She was diagnosed with prediabetes a few years ago, and it runs in her family using the platform to talk about an epidemic in this country, a powerful conversation Viola Davis I have to say sucks you in she speaks so passionately and powerfully she is inspirational and she's here now on the Sunday, sit down podcast.

It it's an epidemic obviously and it and it seems like it's almost everyone story and when it becomes everyone's story and but then no one really talks about it. Then I always feel like someone needs to blow the lid off of it and get it out into the public eye. That's why I'm now leading this film. That's why I wanted to be a part of it There is something about the aloneness of anything that someone is suffering from that I feel is my sort of mission in life, and then it came knocking on your door as well about a year and a half ago when you got word I have prediabetes. When in for hormone tests and then my doctor took the one seat test, which is Comprehensive Test that measures you average glucose in the last two three months. So you take a test for the year I don't know anything about that and then. She told me the results..

"Do you ever stop in your life and look back at the little girl in Rhode Island. Look at your life and go. I don't know how I got here. Thank God I did but I don't know how. I got here all the time every single day you know when I they think about her a lot to first of all it's every day when I opened my refrigerator when I wash my toilet when I could put a robe on when I have hot running water when I know that there's no lead in the pink in my house when I could get in a car and I can go somewhere and not walk. She is with me every day to understand that every little thing in my life is to be celebrated okay but I always say I always want to heal her because she was always so sort of traumatized. I grew up in dysfunction my father ah who I loved more than anything was an alcoholic. It's just a byproduct a lot of times poverty right that it always want to heal her. I just want to reach back and go. You know what everyone I see in my life. I I I'm GONNA remember you. I'm going to listen to people I'm. GonNa love people because it's like healing might the little girl but it's like someone just recently said. Can you allow the little girl that little girl who survived. WHO's pretty tough. Can you allow her to be so excited. At the fifty-three-year-old she gets to become <hes>. Can you our the hug you and just squeal and it took me a long time to do that but I finally did it because I think that there's a grace gratefulness that needs to come and Ajoy that needs succumbed with celebrating the fruits of your Labor that I have not allowed myself to do because I think that's also something that comes from poverty is survivor's. REIVER's guilt is making it out when you see other people who are still in the hole so I'm allowing allowing you to sort of hug me and squeal and I do things like this that feed my soul touch of sugar because I love my sisters who we're here in New York with me. I want the live. I'm reconciling my childhood but as you say it took you a while aalto get there. You're comfortable with your success and your fame and people like me telling you how great you are yeah. What what was the tipping point for you. How did you get there to say. You know what it's okay that I am where I am well. You know what a friend of mine said this once I mean besides therapy but a friend of mine said this once. She said you know what Viola when I tell my story a lot of times. I stand outside of it. I think to myself wow you awesome. That is such an unbelievable testimony. You know then you begin to see how God work miracles in your life and then I started really listening to my story and understood how sort of awesome it was uh-huh incredible. I just thought you just work hard and you get out. That's it. It's nothing credible about it. So the more I've told my story the more I have embraced it but I gotta keep telling it and not live outside of it like grenade. Brown says as Joseph Campbell says when you go and you going out there to that call to adventure and you're going out there to find that Elixir that answer to your life that you gotta go into that Inner Cave and you gotta go in there and slay those dragons and I find that when I went into those innermost caves or that infamous cave that the dragon I needed to slay was me that sort of hurt in that pain of sort of railing at God like why do I have to be that kid growing up or filthy healthy houses and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and why do I do that anger that sort of pain and all the bad that that innermost cave and slay her and understand that I'm still alive. I have the power of influence that God has always been with me. Upward bound program preparatory enrollment program teachers have been awesome. Great actors like Cecily Tyson Meryl Streep People like like my sister the ropes that have been thrown at me. That's what I found in the inner most cave and then you know I- nickelback after I found that answer to sort of give that Elixir to people who are still there there is a way to live a life of significance significance and reconcile way. You are now that there's a way out and there's a way to make your life meaningful forget per day Brown now. I'm following you through the wall. You're you gotta get you. I'm sorry but I think you take it over awesome. I would be derelict in my duty. Judy if I didn't ask you if there's going to be more of the show you mentioned how yeah that's A._B._C. to decide. I think that analysts Keating in has more in her. That's what I think I sort of. I'm seeing something. Is that a suspicion or something. It's a suspicion in a hope that they'll be more. I need for analysts to have some labs. I really do. I you know it's just like me. People think that I'm not fun. I I am so much fun. If you come to my house I'm telling you we have me and my husband would have green parties. You know but I need to have some lab. Let's give her another sees at the laugh. Okay that doesn't get enough for that. I also want to ask you about work you do with your husband and your production company and we were just talking briefly about the manual documentary that DUHR executive producing with steph curry boy. I've only seen the trailer but it looks incredibly moving. Absolutely it looks like something you did the the right way. Why was that a project. You wanted to take on well. We met the victims of the Ame church in Charleston when I was and I had to present them with the award that the Glamour Magazine Event and and then we spoke to them afterwards at the party really sat down with them mm-hmm and you know the big thing with them is they said we're not gonNA live in. Hey we're going to live and forgiveness. What struck me as forgiveness is a journey yeah but I just didn't Walk People Forget that story. I didn't want people to forget that tragedy. You know so often with the number of tragedies at that happened in this country. It's amazing how you have to keep reminding people of it they they remember it for a while. It's it's on the news. It's trending and then because of the twenty four hour news cycle within seconds. It's forgotten again. I didn't want people to forget. I felt like I owed it to them. You know the pain that they still goal to with losing their loved ones as a son a mom <hes> I didn't want people to forget that and how awesome it is like I told you before they use whatever power I have as a source of of influence and so when it came to us as a producing goosing project we wanted to do that. We just felt like we had to. It looks fabulous. I applaud everything you're doing with this platform especially on diabetes. I told you my father other has diabetes so it means a lot that you've given your time to this. Thank you so much thank you. I enjoyed talking to you. Thank you my thanks again to the great. Viola Davis Davis for a great conversation loves spending time with her. You can learn more about her new documentary at a touch of sugar film.

"What? That led to the panic attack along with the red carpet, you know. And you know, I didn't wanna say kill you because match. Oh my God. You got through it. I don't think anybody noticed you survive. Pretty well. I know you say winning an Oscar isn't the end of the world. And and what's next, but to have Oscar winner in front of your name, every time someone says, it does mean something you're in a club with Meryl Streep and some of your other idols, and now people were friends of yours. What does it mean to be in that sort of elite club? You may not think of it that way, but people on the outside certainly do has it changed your life. So I know it's changed your career. I'm sure but does a change your life to be Oscar winner viola Davis. Yeah. It's changed. My life to be Oscar winner to be on TV show, the TV show really out on one life even more than the Oscar. Tell you the truth. Everything is all of it as the money all of it. I remember someone saying, you know, if you're not poor anymore. I was like I'm not. You didn't know what to do with that information is? But I'm yeah. It's it's totally. But I'll tell you what it's probably more of a transformation to people who observe my life than me being in it. Right me being in it. I don't know the biolo- that you talk about I don't I'm aware that you'd know it. But in my every day when I have my rap over my head, and I'm running around with my daughter, and we're going to Ralph's or bonds, and I'm cooking. I'm viola. I'm me, and you know, in terms of me getting through my everyday life and certainly living a meaningful life. It doesn't play a role except for the power of influence, which is what I'm doing here. The power of influence is awesome. I will say that the power to literally stand up on the stage and have people listen to you when you're coming from a pass when one saw, you know, one listened to you. So it's like now, what do you want to say, what do you want to do, you know? Well, it helps that you have such a presence to a lot of people have the platform, but they can't deliver it. I would argue the way you deliver. It have you always had this presence about you, you speak almost poetically. And I mean, it's not everybody who can pull that off. Is that part of being an actor being comfortable on stage? Well, well comfort is like a dirty word for an actor. You know, that they tell you not right for comfort right to be uncomfortable in the moment, you're alive and all of that you're not afraid of the spotlight and the stage. Clearly, well, sometimes I am. But I'm I'm used to it. I'm used to the spotlight. I guess I'm used to the camera being placed on me. I am. Thank you. For listening to the Sunday.

Do you ever stop in your life and look back at the little girl in Rhode Island? Look at your life and go, I don't know how I got here. Thank god. I did. But I don't know how I got here. All the time. And we single day. You know, when I think about her a lot to first of all every day when I opened my refrigerator. When I wash my toilet. When I could put a robe on. When I have hot running water. When I know that there's no lead in the paint in my house. When I could get in the car, and I can go somewhere and not walk. She is with me every day to understand that every little thing in my life is to be celebrated. Okay. But I always say I always want to heal her because she was always so sort of traumatize grew up in dysfunction. My father who I loved more than anything was an alcoholic.

But it's like someone just recently said can you allow the little girl that little girl who survived who's pretty tough can you allow her to be so excited at the Fifty-three-year-old?

But I finally did it because I think that there's a grace gratefulness that needs to come and a joy that needs to come with celebrating the fruits of your labor that I had not allowed myself to do because I think that's also something that comes from poverty is survivors guilt. If is the making it out when you see other people who are still in the hole. So I'm allowing her to sort of hug means squeal, and I do things like this that feed my soul touch of sugar because I love my sisters who are here in New York with me, I want to live. Yeah, I'm reconciling my childhood. But as you say it took you awhile to get there. You weren't comfortable with your success and your fame and people like me telling you how great you are. Yeah. What what was the tipping point for you? How did you get there to say? You know, what it's okay that I am where I am. Well, you know, what a friend of mine said this once I mean, besides a lot. But a friend of mine said this once she said, you know, what by Ola when I tell my story a lot of times, I stand outside of it. And I think to myself. Wow, you want awesome.

That sort of hurt in that pain of soda railing at God. Like, why do I have to be that kid it's growing up or filthy houses, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

"I'm Sam Sanders. It's been a minute here with a friend of the show, and friend of mine who I have not talked to in a minute. How do you coordinate shower? Hey there Sam Sanders. So your job is one of the host of NPR's all things considered. Yes, keeps you very busy. I feel like the last time you were here on this show. It was well over a year ago. How have you been where have you been in was? Well, it turns out have been busy doing a ton of really intense interviews, but I may be on the show against what are you going to be on today as and as a special way, I'm bringing you on in this conversation on because I've been basically jealous of you all year in these amazing interviews you've been getting for this series of live shows that you've been doing in DC and in New York, and you have this one that came out but two or three weeks ago where you talked with on stage in front of a live audience for like an hour the viola Davis. Yes, she is incredible. She has the triple crown of acting. I think like an EMMY and an Oscar she has Tony thinks she has to Tony. And we were at the ninety second street y and she was in the middle of promoting with. Does big film with Steve McQueen who had directed twelve years a slave? And we really thought we were going to have kind of like a fun viola Davis, you know, like in her heist film, kind of interview and it turned into something else. Something much something much richer, something that felt real very real and something that gave me more than a keyhole view into how Hollywood works totally. And like she spilt the T on her problems with the plotline of the help. She talked about how she wasn't even the first pick for how to get away with murder. I mean, this is Connie show from Sean Dillon. She plays the lawyer and killer Annelies Keating, she talked about what really goes into making a blockbuster happened with the black woman at the lead like she really spilled the tea she did. And I think one thing that was different than how I approach the interview is that so many people have talked to her in terms of saying viola Davis where did you come from? You'll like a comet, you know, or. Tell us about your dark back story. You know, she's very she grew up poor and talks about how poverty affected her life. I approached this as you are a baby. And what's it like at the top? Because I know the air guests in let's talk about what that's like for you. And how you move through that world because he's been a person of color were you're the only one or one of a few. It is it's complex, and she I think really engaged on some of those ideas, and even took it to places, I didn't expect I totally enjoyed it. I'm so glad to give it to our listeners. We're going to toss to it. Now, you can do the honors make the official toss to your interview with. Okay, everyone please enjoy our conversation with the actress viola Davis..

President Trump, President And President Putin discussed on All Things Considered

"With the president of China this weekend. Both are locked in a multi-billion dollar trade war. Civil rights leaders say the indictment of four Saint Louis metropolitan police officers reveals a troubling mindset. Inside the department Saint Louis public radio's Rachel Lipman reports. The officers are facing federal charges for their roles in the assault of an undercover officer during a two thousand seventeen protests. The charges include excessive force obstruction of Justice and lying to a grand jury four officers have been suspended without pay the undercover detective was among hundreds of people arrested at downtown Saint Louis in September of last year. It was the third day of protests after a white for a police officer was acquitted of shooting and killing a black, man. That's Rachel Lipman reporting. This is NPR and I'm Jimmy Floyd for WNYC. Some New York City council. Members are introducing a Bill to make the government bidding process with corporations more transparent. The new law would prohibit officials from signing nondisclosure agreements with companies as happened in the Amazon deal councilmember Brad Lander says he feels that level of secrecy should not happen again. If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices. We can make a bid, but it has to be public and people would be able to see it. The Bill is cosponsored by council members Monty Williams and Jimmy van Bremer atop regional Federal Housing administrator is calling for the arrest of three Niger officials after a report found they regularly lied about elevator. Inspections. Lynn Pat overseas region, two of the department of housing and urban development, which includes New York and New Jersey yesterday. She tweeted that the Niger employees should be jailed after they were charged with dozens of felony counts. For falsifying inspection reports. Daily news reporter, Greg Smith says Patten has little authority to pursue the case herself. She has almost nothing to do with this. I guess it's well intention that she does ask a question that is important. And that is did anybody higher up the ladder condone this behavior that isn't really important question. That's the most important question. Smith says the case will be handled by. The district attorney, and Shirley Chisholm story is coming to the big screen and Oscar winning actress viola Davis is bringing it to life. Davis is set to produce and star in a new film about Chisholm for Amazon studios called the fighting, Shirley Chisholm Chisholm, the first black woman ever elected to congress represented New York's twelfth district in the house of representatives from nineteen sixty nine to nine thousand nine hundred eighty three. She was also the first woman to seek the democratic party's presidential nomination in nineteen seventy-two Chisholm died in two thousand five at age eighty and we'll have a retrospective later on all things considered tonight.

There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.
