Taraji P. Henson talked about her experience growing up in DC during a recent interview. ”
Honey, I’m from the hood. Crack. Murders. Whole neighborhoods going under in a flash.”
Taraji says she’s not so sure Hollywood is getting better for black women, but it’s going great for her.
“I own six properties, I’m out of the hood, and my son don’t know the hood.” That’s the goal. Get out the hood and have a successful career. You are not your circumstances. It’s never too late. Taraji says she was a late bloomer to her career. *Side bar* She looks GREAT for 46! As far as her late start in the game, she says she’s quite alright with that because “late bloomers last looong.” That is certainly true for Taraji… her latest movie Hidden Figures is this year’s highest grossing Oscar nominee. YES! Taraji you better get this coins.
