Golden Globe winner, Taraji P. Henson is on the cover of ELLE magazine.
The “Empire” queen, who took home the Globe for Best Performance By An Actress In A Drama Television Series on Sunday, is serving all types of fabulousness on ELLE magazine’s Women In Television February 2016 issue, an issue dedicated to shining light on the must-see women on TV right now.
The 45-year-old stunna is giving us hotness with head a full of luscious curls and a killer “smize” like only she can pull off. Shot by photographer Dan Martensen, “Cookie” brings the fab in a red Marc Jacobs leather jacket, a white t-shirt by Off-White co/o Virgil Abloh and a Bulgari necklace. Chick can slay a cover.
Inside, Taraji talks about her character Cookie Lyon having more layers than that feisty, ish talking attitude.
“It was very important to me that [Cookie Lyon] not be sassy and neck-rollin’ and eye-bulgin’ and attitude all the time, said Taraji. “Everything she does is coming from a place of fighting for her family. That’s why she’s not a caricature.”
While we all love Cookie, Taraji did throw some subtle shade during her acceptance speech saying she was surprised to win playing the role of a convict rather than some of her more positive roles. But, she was totally grateful for winning her first Globe.
Mediaoutrage– Congrats to Taraji on her win!
