Taraji P. Henson to 'Ebony': 'I'm Treated Like I'm On the D-List'

Taraji P. Henson looks beautiful on the cover of Ebony magazine‘s October 2014 issue.

The 43-year-old actress opened up to the mag about not feeling she has earned the respect she believes she has deserved for her career accomplishments, which includes an Oscar nomination for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

“I’m treated like I’m on the D-list,” Taraji said. “I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved.”

“When people tell me ‘no,’ I get hyped,” she added. “Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.”

While she might think she is treated as though she is on the D-list, Taraji says she uses her status to get some special treatment to get her “fat ass into a restaurant. If someone tells me there’s a wait, I’ll walk right to the front of the line like, ‘I need a table now. I need to eat, and I want this. So let’s work this out.’”
