Live Civil Catches Up With Taraji P. Henson On The Set Of ‘What Men Want’

By Posted on 137 3 m read

WHAT MEN WANT IS IN THEATRES JANUARY 11, 2019

 ‘What Men Want’ is about Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) who is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world… until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts! With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest (Aldis Hodge) to the test.

WHAT MEN WANT is the latest comedy from director Adam Shankman (HAIRSPRAY) and producers Will Packer and James Lopez (GIRLS TRIP), co-starring Tracy Morgan, Richard Roundtree, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Josh Brener, Tamala Jones, Phoebe Robinson, Max Greenfield, Jason Jones, Brian Bosworth, Chris Witaske and Erykah Badu.

We had to chance to talk to Taraji P. Henson on set and here are a few  tidbits were got:

How does it feel, cause you have done leading lady (we got to see Acrimony and Proud Mary), how does it feel in this type of role that is a departure from Cookie?

This is the role I have been waiting for, as a single parent who moved to LA doing a half hour sitcom was a dream role, because I still had time to go home and help my son with his homework and it didn’t require crazy hours. As God would have it, I was always doing drama, and I always wanted to do this. I have a lot to prove because I don’t do comedy and I try to put comedy in everything I do. To me, the best dramatic actresses are comedic actresses beach they dd another layer.

Some are saying that is a gift and some are saying it is a curse to read minds, would you want the type of power?

I don’t want pressure. I have enough dealing with the voices in my own head.

You were almost cast in Girl’s Trip but it didn’t work out, how do you think that changed your career?

I don’t think it changed it in any way. I didn’t help or hinder. I think I always been the type that there is enough work for everybody. I can’t do everything and I don’t want to do everything. I remember Will called me, and I don’t know what roll he had for me and I felt like it was someone else blessing. When he came back she knew what I was looking for and that was my number one position as a comedian.

Can you talk about your style evolution and the style of this movie:

They style of this project is very professional and slick. Everything is form fitting, nudes and then lighter colors towards the end. It’s comedy in wearing pumps and pencil skirts.
