Marie Claire South Africa: April 2018 – Taraji P. Henson

Empire star Taraji P. Henson is featured in the April 2018 issue of Marie Claire South Africa.

From the digital issue:

Taraji P. Henson is ready for her biggest year yet, with four movies due to release in 2018. The hardest-working girl’s girl in Hollywood says she fights for her characters, “because I believe in them; because I believe in me.”

Asked about the legacy she wants to leave, she looks directly in your eyes, steeling her glare that does not waver. “I love black people, I love telling black stories. I want little girls to study me like I studied Meryl Streep, Bette Davis, and Carol Burnett,” she says. “I want them to study my work, because I put a lot of work in, a lot of blood, sweat and tears.”

Empire airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
