And the magazine covers just keep rolling in! Taraji P. Henson graces the cover of W Magazine’s August 2015 issue. Inside, the “Empire” star brings the heat in an extra saucy spread. Check it out….
Following her sizzling ALLURE cover, “Empire” breakout star Taraji P. Henson is already slaying another magazine cover. Shot by fashion photographers Mert Alan and Marcus Piggott, the 44-year-old star unleashes her sexy (serving up some Janet Jackson tease) for W magazine’s August 2015 Pop Issue.
And this happened:
The gorge No Good Deed star, styled by Edward Enninful, is heating up the pages with her lady lumps on display in a hot shot….and we are NOT mad. She looks amazing.
In the cover story, the YBF chick chops it up about her breakout character on the hit hip hopera, Cookie Lyon. While most of us love her crazy, outspoken and bold antics, some feel Cookie isn’t a great role model for the black community. Well, Taraji has her opinion. She said,
“When I hear that Cookie is a bad representation of black women, I don’t get involved. Maybe Cookie makes you uncomfortable because she reminds you of yourself. People miss the bigger picture when they start judging.”
As a young mother, the YBF actress knows the struggle of starting from the bottom and working her way to the top. She found out she was pregnant during her junior year of college, but that didn’t stop her. She eventually moved to Los Angeles with her son to start her acting career after graduating from Howard University. She said she sees a lot of herself in Cookie because she knows what it’s like to start from nothing. She explained,
“Not only would I never be offered a character like Cookie in a movie, but she doesn’t exist,” Henson said. “Cookie is bold and crazy, and she loves the struggle. She started from nothing, and now she’s at the top. In that way, we’re alike: Cookie is the American Dream.”
Peep the rest of her titillating spread below, styled by Edward Enninful:
“Empire” just started production on the new season in Chicago and the second season premieres Sept. 23rd on FOX. Get ready.
