Taraji P. Henson Reveals She Worked at The Pentagon!

Taraji P. Henson stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night (February 4) and dished about her time at The Pentagon as a college student!

“Coming from the Washington, D.C. area, most of my family worked for the government, so that’s how I got my job in college at The Pentagon,” the 48-year-old actress revealed. “Back in the day kids had jobs and that’s why they weren’t killing each other. I was actually in a stay-in-school program, as long as I was in school full-time I could work 20 hours a week.”
