Come through Cookie! Taraji P. Henson is on the latest cover of Essence Magazine showing off that strong, sensual, sexiness that we all love! Wrapped in an elegant black Fausto Puglisi gown with coral embroidery and slits as high as the heavens, Taraji makes it clear who’s boss! Inside the Issue Taraji is dishing on the hard work and success of her career. She shares her game plan for the future saying “I’m just gonna keep amassing an audience, everything was strategically planned. This is what all my efforts are for.” She also speaks on acting as a craft and how serious it should be taken stating “these kids are thinking they can do reality TV and come and do this craft that I studied, sweated and grinded. People forget it’s a craft because it’s so pop now…Can they make me believe the words coming out of their mouth?” Welp! Sounds like Cookie is not here for reality tv! Taraji also talked about her hit show Empire and Essence sits down with Bryshere ‘Yazz’ Grey to get his thoughts on his on-screen mom.
The November issue is set to hit newsstands this Friday October 16th!
