Taraji P. Henson Says Hollywood Execs Wouldn't Bring Her Overseas to Do Press

Taraji P. Henson is on the cover of InStyle‘s January 2019 issue, out on newsstands on December 7.

Here’s what the 48-year-old Empire actress had to say…

On how she feels at the moment: “I feel like a boss bitch.”

On studios never bringing her overseas to do press: “Hollywood executives would tell me that I don’t have fans all the way over there. I said, ‘You’re lying because they can reach me any time. I’m a finger tap away, and they let me know every day.’”

On her role as Cookie from Empire letting her feel appreciated: “Then we go to Paris [to promote Empire], and its standing room only in a room with 1,500 seats. I cried. If you believe what people tell you…you can’t let people tell you s–t.”

On the topic of representation: “I don’t care if you’re young or old or what color you are, art is so powerful. You can show things to people you’ve never met and you can broaden horizons. I don’t take for granted what I have, and I try to use it in any way I can, positively.”
