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.
