Taraji P. Henson’s meteoric rise hasn’t been as seamless as some might imagine it has been. Even before she broke into the mainstream with her portrayal of Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Taraji was honing her craft in bit parts on some of our favorite sitcoms of all-time.
Now, she worked up an incredible stride with her role on the fan favorite FOX offering Empire, and now with the critically-acclaimed comedy What Men Want, starring Taraji, Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge, Erykah Badu, Josh Brenner, and Brian Bosworth, and featuring some of the biggest sports stars in American professional sports.
Recently, Paramount Pictures invited The Shadow League down to the ATL to speak with Taraji about her role in this hilarious new rendition of an old classic. Check out what she had to say!
