Will best actress nominee Viola Davis be sporting her all-natural (and wigless!) look at Sunday's Academy Awards?

She will if her husband, Julius Tennon, has anything to do with it. The 46-year-old actress, who has sported wigs for years, stepped out with a shorter 'do at a private event in Los Angeles Thursday.

Oscar Predictions: Who will win?

"My husband wanted me to take the wig off," she told

. "He said, 'If you want to wear it for your career, that's fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are!' It's a powerful statement."While she's enjoying her natural, wig-free look for now, Davis says she can't guarantee it will be for good. "We'll see. I think I'll change it up every once in a while," she said. "It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I'm spicing my life up a bit."Davis' role as Aibileen Clark in The Help earned her a nomination for best actress at Sunday's Oscars.What do you think of her natural look?
