Don’t get it twisted: “Empire” actress Taraji P. Henson said there’s no comparing the talent of actors and reality stars. I feel naked. I feel like a plucked chicken… or a wet one. Fashion people are crazy!’ Henson recalled a recent conversation she had with Empire co-creator Lee Daniels where he dished on his encounter with President Obama at September’s state dinner in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping, The Huffington Post reported.
Weber also created a video that gives us a look behind the scenes of the photoshoot and a few steamy cameos from Jussie Smollett, Jon Batiste, Michael Beasley and Henry Williams (because what’s an “Empire” star without her cameos?). It’s a kingdom she’s worked years to acquire and continues to tirelessly show up for.
‘After my first big role, I said, “Oh my God, Daddy, this is it”.
‘My dad was my champion. ‘I remember calling him one day, so frustrated. “That sun is going to crack open and shine so bright”‘. You can see her entire new look in a video “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” accompanying the shoot. “You all inspire me!” “I want to see her. You have no idea how much I love Cookie.’ So I dropped the phone”, she said in reference to Michelle Obama’s comment.
We promise we won’t send you any cookies, Taraji. “She was Meryl Streep in the streets; it just took a moment for white America to catch on”.
