Taraji P. Henson reigns supreme on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
In the mag she talks about the upcoming third season of ‘Empire,’ her success, and more.
Check out a few excerpts:
On Cookie’s popularity: “Cookie has all kinds of fans, all. I get it. She’s my alter ego — we all need a Sasha Fierce.”
On starring in Empire and in the new film Hidden Figures: “This is my first time carrying a show and then going to carry a movie. That’s a lot. It’s so stressful, and I had to really check myself because it’s so easy to take for granted when you get to a certain level. Like check yourself because people pray to be here.”
In addition to her cover story, Taraji’s featured in six gorgeous shots taken by photographer James White.
Check out the behind-the-scenes video of her cover shoot below. Yassss, Taraji!
