Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis' marriage to fellow actor Julius Tennon is picture perfect and we have the proof.
2002: Brand New Love
Viola admits that in her younger years, she didn't have much luck in the dating department. It wasn't until she prayed for her husband, literally, that love found it's way to her.
"I was the loneliest woman in the world, and someone said, 'You should just pray for a husband.' I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before...3 1/2 weeks later I met my husband."
