Emmy- and Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson is ESSENCE magazine’s November cover woman.
Inside the issue, the acclaimed actress, clad in a form-fitting black Fausto Puglisi dress on the stunning cover, discusses the art of acting. In short, she wants viewers to know that she put in hard work to amass the incredible success she’s currently experiencing.
“These kids are thinking they can do reality TV and come and do this craft that I studied, sweated and grinded,” says Henson. “People forget it’s a craft because it’s so pop now…Can they make me believe the words coming out of their mouth?”
Let ’em know, Taraji!
