We appreciate a good love story and Viola Davis and Julius Tennon have a great one.
The power couple got married in June 2003 making their union 18 (going on 19) years long.
Davis recently spoke about her rare love story on the Oprah + Viola: A Netflix Special Event. The Oscar winner opened up about how she brought about the man of her dreams through the power of prayer.

Viola adds, “I went and I got on my knees.”
