Despite what she wears on Empire, Taraji P. Henson revealed some very “down to earth” facts about her life.
“It’s weird because I’ve been doing this for so long and it took a character like Cookie to expose me to the world in a way that I’ve never been exposed before.”
So what’s a way she’s staing grounded? SHOPPING.
“I love to shop at Target and I love to do my own shopping, but that’s become difficultÃ¢â¬Â¦ with the paparazzi. It’s like, Ã¢â¬ËWhere were y’all, like, 10 years ago?’ You have got to take the good with the bad. The good side is I can get into any restaurantÃ¢â¬Â¦ last-minute.”
Though in five years, Taraji hopes things won’t be as, uh, hectic:
“Hopefully, I don’t want to say Ã¢â¬Ëretired,’ but a little slowed down. Maybe just picking and choosing projects I want to do. Maybe enjoying the fruits of my labor.”
Don’t we all have the same wish, Taraji? Don’t we allllll.
