Our favorite homegirl Taraji P. Henson lands yet another cover this time with Essence magazine. Check how she kills it… Cookie style!
Here is what Taraji has to say on success:
She’s not a fan of overnight stardom
“These kids are thinking they can do reality TV and come and do this craft that I studied, sweated and grinded. People forget it’s a craft because it’s so pop now. [The whole] “it’s so fun to play so and so in a movie because they have so many followers on Twitter…” F that. Can they make me believe the words coming out their mouth?”
She’s not one to believe the hype
“I didn’t compare myself to people. People said, ‘This is gonna change everything for you,'” she said, referencing her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. “I’m glad I didn’t believe that hype. I never got caught up in that stuff. I just stayed the course and worked hard and every role I did, I put my everything into it. Everything that I did got me here, and I wouldn’t change it or trade it for the world.”
She is truly someone I would love to know personally… she seems like she is a lot of fun, real and about her business! I see you Cookie
