Taraji explained that when she accidentally revealed her natural hair, Bruce thought the look was beautiful and was determined to shoot the actress without her wigs.

“Part of me was like, No, no, no, NO! This is the hair no one is supposed to see. This is like behind-closed doors hair. I feel naked. I feel like a plucked chicken…or a wet one. A baby chicken! But Bruce says to me, ‘It’s not about the hair, it’s your face.’ So I just decided to trust the artist’s vision. As an actress that’s what we do,” Taraji explained.

Looks like some gorgeous photos came out of the shoot!
