Taraji P. Henson takes a cue from Beyonce and leaves her pants at home on the cover of the October issue of EBONY. The Hollywood heavy hitter might be distracting us with this sultry snapshot, but in the interview, she leaves no stone unturned and opens up about her latest project, “No Good Deed,” the kinkiest place she’s had sex and her guilty pleasures to bizarre dreams and sexting.
Henson is now a recognizable face whose diverse body of work, including “The Curious Life of Benjamin Button” and “Baby Boy,” has garnered accolades from Oscar nods to NAACP Image Awards. Despite her accomplishments, Henson admits she still struggles with accessing the power of influence in the industry. “I’m still treated like I’m on the D-list,” Henson acknowledges. “I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved.” Taraji uses the obstacles as motivation. “When people tell me no, I get hyped,” she shares. “Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.”
Yes, Taraji! From the fierce image on the cover, to the candid interview she shared with Ebony, we’re happy to see Taraji out here making waves and looking stunning while doing it!
