Natural look!

Check out Taraji P. Henson on the cover of Upscale’s February issue. In the article, the 41-year-old actress expresses that mommy duties come first, being an actress is second, and staring Tyler Perry’s upcoming film. Take a look at excerpts below

On being a mom first, actress second: 

“This Hollywood thing? It’s my job. That’s it. I love it and I worked hard for it. But it by no means defines who I am. When I go home, my family and friends say, ‘I liked your movie. Now can you go wash your dishes please?”

On wanting to prove ‘Hollywood’ wrong:

“Hollywood keeps trying to tell me that black women can’t open a film. I will absolutely prove them wrong before my career is done. I want to stretch my acting muscle and do something completely different. I’d love to play a man. Sounds weird, but I want to do something that make me work hard. Call me kooky, but I always want to go outside my comfort zone.”

On playing a bad girl for the first time in the upcoming Tyler Perry’s ‘Think Like A Man’ film:

“You’ve never seen me play this girl. She’s a bitch. And she’s the pretty girl in the film. I wanted this role so bad. I told the casting folks,’if you don’t let me get that role, I don’t need to be in this movie at all.’ They were thinking about casting a white girl for the role and I said, ‘No. I can do this.’ And then of course, when it’s time to start filming, I freaked out. I said, wait’ Maybe I should play the baby-momma instead….[LOL] I was scared because it’s so different than anything I’ve ever done.”
