Viola Davis to HTGAWM creative team: "No more sex scenes!"

The season three premiere of Viola Davis' hit series "How To Get Away With Murder" launches at 10 p.m. Thursday on ABC. The star wouldn't give away any plot surprises during a recent visit to Ellen DeGeneres' show but did reveal her plea to the show's creative team:  "I told them no more sex scenes!"

By that she means no more physically demanding sex scenes.

"You cannot throw me up against a wall," she said. "They threw me up against the wall the first season and I threw my back out for two weeks. And my hip! So I limped around for two weeks and I said, no more walls. I just want to be on the bed and I don’t want to move. I don’t want anyone on top of me and I don’t want to be on top of anything else!"

Ellen's response is hilarious. Check it out here:
