A few weeks ago Viola Davis revealed that she injured her back while filming a sex scene for her hit show, ‘How to Get Away With Murder.’

During her recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, Viola elaborated a bit on what went down.

“We really went for it,” she said. “I said, ‘Listen, I’m always playing a maid, I’m always gaining 40 pounds for a role. I want to be sexy! I’m pulling out all the stops!'”

Despite how it appeared, Viola says the production process behind the sexy scene was the exact opposite.

“The director said ‘Slam her up against the wall, and then really go for it, pull your pants down,'” said Viola. “He slams me up against the wall. Six people are behind the wall, holding it up. That thing is shaking. It sounds sexy but it really wasn’t.”
