"I went through a horrible midlife crisis during Doubt. I was just in a quandry, in my own doubt. I thought to myself, 'Okay, I've kind of seen my dreams come true but why don't I feel fulfilled? . . . And I didn't know that when you come to the midpoint in your life anyway, that there's a certain amount of disillusion that comes with that. The disillusion is that all the things that you thought defined success and could fill you up have been defined by other people and not so much by yourself."
— Viola Davis, 47, told Oprah in 2012
