Although Davis is all glamorous now, she does have a few regrets. The actress recently told the New York Times that she regretted starring in the hit “The Help.” She said, “A better question is, have I ever done roles that I’ve regretted. … I have, and The Help is on that list.”

Davis felt the movie did not accurately portray the fear the Black people felt in the 1960s, during racial segregation. “I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard.

If you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work for white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it,” she said. “I never heard that in the course of the movie.”
