Taraji P. Henson Yearns For 'That Real Kind of Love'

Taraji P. Henson shows her style on the cover of Redbook magazine’s October 2016 issue, on newsstands September 13.

Here’s what the Empire star had to share:

On holding out for the right kind of relationship: “If I was going to get married, it had to be for love, because I wanted [my son] Marcell to see that real kind of love—the kind I yearn for. That old couple crooked and bent over but still holding hands. I know that kind of love exists and I’m not going to stop until I have that.”

On why she’s not afraid of aging: “I grew up watching women in my family embrace getting older and I think that’s healthy. You ought to see my grandmother: She is 92, looks great, still travels, and dates a younger man. I’m 46 and I’m proud. Men don’t lie about their age, so why should women?”

On not overprotecting children: “These days we’re so busy protecting our kids, when we really should be pulling back the blinds and showing them that we live in a world that’s not always fair and moral. Sometimes we try to protect our children so much that when something doesn’t go right in their lives, they’re unprepared to deal with adversity. I don’t think that does our kids any favors.”
