Viola Davis recently took the plunge during a daring skydiving adventure in Hawaii!
The 53-year-old Academy Award-winning actress shared a series of videos of her wild jump, which she described as, "the ultimate exercise in letting go, tackling my fears and freedom," in a social media post.
"So....I jumped out of a plane. Yup. I did it. 12,000 ft and 100mph drop. It was awesome...Loved it!!!" she captioned the video. "As a smart woman once said, 'Courage is fear said with prayers.'"
She added the hashtags "#BlackGirlMagicOrBlackGirlCrazy," "#GladIDidntWearAWig," "#WalkingInto2019WithASword" and "#ForgiveMeForMyCussWordsAndJackedUpHair."
Before making the leap, she told her tandem instructor, who she made the jump with, "I'm feeling a little anxious, but I'm ready. I feel alive."
"As long as you’re not nervous, I’m fine!” she added. "My will is done, signed, sealed, delivered," she joked.
