Recently the talented actress Taraji P. Henson sat at The Hollywood Reporter’s Drama Actress Roundtable and said, “ I hate that b*tch Cookie. She has stolen my identity. I’m getting called Cookie everywhere. My friends don’t want to talk to me unless it’s about Cookie.” Poor Taraji!
The actress also revealed that she was scared of the role of Cookie, however, she wanted to take on the role because it was a challenge. It’s hard to believe Taraji was afraid of the role that she plays so well, winning numerous awards for the role on the hit series Empire. She also compared Cooke to her dad saying, “He was a very straight, no chaser. He said it like it was, and nine times out of 10, he was right. You either loved him or you hated him because he was speaking truth, straight truth right at you.” Taraji career doesn’t end with Cookie, she want to explore her way around Hollywood playing other races, a superhero, bond girl and even a man! So we will see what up next for Ms. Taraji and congratulations on her many awards. Check out her around the roundtable on The Closeup With The Hollywood Reporter Sunday August 2.
