Oscar and Emmy-nominated actress, Taraji P. Henson, is no stranger to magazine covers. These past few months, she has graced covers for popular magazines like, ‘W’ Magazine, Allure and Glamour and now she is the cover girl for the November issue of Essence Magazine.
Essence shared a sneak peak of the interview with us. Check out these excerpts from her interview:
When asked about her strong work ethic and efforts:
“I’m just gonna keep amassing an audience.” She continues…”Everything was strategically planned. This is what all my efforts are for.”
Her response when asked about the importance of taking the business of acting seriously:
“These kids are thinking they can do reality TV and come and do this craft that I studied, sweated and grinded.” She continues…”People forget it’s a craft because it’s so pop now…Can they make me believe the words coming out of their mouth?”
