Speaking to Extra in a new interview, the fierce actress spilled:

“It’s weird because I’ve been doing this for so long and it took a character like Cookie to expose me to the world in a way that I’ve never been exposed before.”

It’s true. But Cookie Taraji is trying to stay as down-to-earth as possible.

The 45-year-old shared:

“I love to shop at Target and I love to do my own shopping, but that’s become difficult├óΓé¼┬ª with the paparazzi. It’s like, ├óΓé¼╦£Where were y’all, like, 10 years ago?’ You have got to take the good with the bad. The good side is I can get into any restaurant├óΓé¼┬ª last-minute.”

LOLz!

And revealing what it was like to be awarded with her first GG, she revealed:

“That is our soul we expose to the world, so whenever people receive it and people go, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, we want to give you something,’ it always feels good.”

What a beautiful way to put it!

Though in five years, the starlet hopes to be settled down a bit. Taraji explained:

“Hopefully, I don’t want to say ├óΓé¼╦£retired,’ but a little slowed down. Maybe just picking and choosing projects I want to do. Maybe enjoying the fruits of my labor.”

Yass!

At least this means we won’t be saying “bye” to Cookie anytime soon!
