"Queen" just doesn't cut it for Taraji P. Henson anymore. She's totally surpassed that title!

Similar to the white version Kendall Jenner wore to the MuchMusic Video Awards in 2014.

The actress also discusses the long road it took to get to this level of fame:

"I'm just gonna keep amassing an audience. Everything was strategically planned. This is what all my efforts are for.

"Even though people are just finding me now as Cookie, thank God for Netflix because people are so moved by my performance they're like, ‘Where has she been?' I've always said I want to do the type of work that people study."

And you better believe she takes the art of acting very seriously:
