Taraji P. Henson Graces October Issue of ‘Marie Claire’

From her fierce character on Empire to her award-winning role in Hidden Figures, Taraji P. Henson always lights up the big screen.

The actress recently graced the cover of Marie Claire’s October issue, and aside from looking absolutely stunning, she opened up about the importance of supporting other women, and what she hopes her legacy will be. Henson also explains that she is well-aware of the eyes on her and that she hopes that those watching her will learn her story and be inspired.

“I love black people. I love telling stories. I want these little girls to study me like I tstudied Meryl [Streep] and Bette Davis and Carol Burnett. I want them to study my work, because I put a lot of work in, a lot of blood, sweat and tears.”

As for supporting other women in the industry she states, “how can we get ahead if we’re feuding and hating on each other all the time? I made a pact years ago that I would never hate on another female, ever, especially in this industry.”
