While on the red carpet for the annual GLAAD Media AwardsViola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) took a few moments to chat with CBR News about her upcoming role as Amanda Waller in David Ayer's Suicide Squad.

The actress then elaborated a bit and revealed how she relates to the character: "She’s unapologetic, everything that I’m reading and studying about her: unapologetic, no humor, just brutal. That’s me!" The

Now, I would never do that in real life, but when I get a gun on set, it does something to me. *Laughs*"
