The Queen of FOX is here! Taraji P. Henson known to the world for her popular role as Cookie on Empire recently did a shoot with Entertainment Weekly. She is wearing her title well and looking fabulous on her spread. She has been really busy with several new projects in the works, including her upcoming memoir “Around The Way Girl” (dropping October 11th), a new MAC cosmetics line and she’s gearing up for a lead role in Hidden Figures where she will play real-life NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson (due out in theaters January 13, 2017).
“This is my first time carrying a show and then going to carry a movie,” Taraji told EW. “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.”
Season 3 of “Empire” returns September 21st at 9pm EST on FOX.
