Viola Davis & Her Big Sister Are Legit Twins in Gorgeous Birthday Selfie

Viola Davis and her big sister could legit pass for twins—and we've got proof.

The How to Get Away with Murder actress recently shared a poignant birthday tribute to her sibling, Deloris Grant, on Instagram. Along with a gorgeous selfie that showcases their matching smiles, Davis wrote, "Happy birthday to my sister @deloris1963!! Teacher, mother, wife, daughter, aunty, and friend extraordinaire!! You are the absolute BEST of what life has to offer!"

The 55-year-old actress continued, "You give with your entire heart. My favorite words uttered by you is when I was complaining about 2020 and wanting it to go away. You said, 'Viola....never wish time away.' Love, love, love you Dee!! Wish I could celebrate this day with you. [yellow heart emojis]."

In the accompanying photo, Davis and her sister are side by side with their stunning makeup, smiling at the camera, and it's hard to miss the fact that they look so similar. One fan commented, "Before I even saw the caption I just knew that had to be your sister. So much alike!!" Another person wrote, "Your twin!! Simply gorgeous [heart emoji]."

Davis recently chatted with PureWow about her beauty routine and how she maintains healthy skin. She said, "People always say sleep is key—and that’s absolutely true for me. Because I have such a busy schedule, I’ve started going to bed earlier, and even asking for more time off work, which has helped me exponentially. Beyond that, I’m always hydrating with Alkaline water. It helps my skin look plump and evens out the oil, which banishes blemishes down the road." It's no wonder the actress always has such glowing skin!

Do keep the family snapshots coming, Viola.
