It appeared as though Davis was on course to become one of the biggest stars of her generation. She made her name with memorable appearances in the iconic Thelma & Louise as well as The Accidental Tourist. The latter role landed her an Oscar win but then she disappeared out of nowhere (via Sofy).
That’s because Davis turned to activism after noticing Hollywood’s gender imbalance. These days her main passion is encouraging young girls and women to turn to act. Another issue that she cares about is the Hollywood gender pay gap that sees female leads earn less than their male equivalents.
