Taraji P. Henson doesn’t just play a badass on screen, she’s 100% one in real life!
So if you’re not on the Taraji bandwagon just yet, get ready!
She’s said it once and she’ll say it again:
“I always wanted to be known for my work. Not who I dated. Not who I slept with. … I have a gift, and my gift is acting ├óΓé¼┬ª I started in the business at 26 with a kid, so I was smart enough to know reality from fantasy. I didn’t want to blur the lines. This is a job that I have to do. I cannot get caught up in it. And if I sleep with these guys, why would they want to work with me again?”
Taraji’s got the big picture in mind — and we love it!
She even continued to explain why:
“You have to stay professional. It is a business … I’m not letting no knucklehead dude come between my hard work and my money.”
YES! Get your money, T!
You’ve proved you can do it on your own!
