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 InStyle.com. "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.
