Oscar-winner Viola Davis recently took to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to elaborate on a very relatable issue.
While promoting her new Showtime series, "The First Lady," Davis broached the topic of weight gain.
The star noted that she believes she's at a healthy weight, but after turning 56, she doesn't "know what fits anymore."
"That's when it hit. Everything gets wider, bulgier, and here's the thing, I work out," she revealed.
Davis likens her weight fluctuations to the unavoidable dip in metabolism that naturally comes with age for some, but it's understandable that there's a bit of frustration when you're not seeing results after following a consistent workout regime and eating plan.
“I get on the scale,” she told Kimmel, adding, “I look at it. I get back off. I get back on. I get off. And then I'll even take a hair pin out of my hair. I'll put it on the side. I get back on. And by that time I'm mad as hell.”
Then, as Yahoo Entertainment reported, the “Ma Rainey's Black Bottom” actress revealed another reason she might be experiencing some aggravatingly persistent pounds – drinking more alcohol during quarantine.
“I think it has something to do with those large glasses of liquor I've been drinking during the pandemic,” she said. “I've been knocking that back.”
Davis will be stepping into the shoes of Michelle Obama in the upcoming Showtime series premiering April 17.
