During a recent interview on The Wendy Williams Show, Taraji P. Henson made a comment that might have raised a few eyebrows. But the actress tells us exclusively that she was simply, misquoted.
“They [media] said I was done with Black men,” Henson told us during an interview to talk about her forthcoming film, From the Rough. “I have a Black son, what are you saying, what does that mean?”
She continued, “I said that I have started dating other cultures, so it was a celebration of other cultures and not a put down of my own. That’s stupid. Why would I say I’m done with Black men. That’s dumb.”
While discussing her love life with Wendy, Henson revealed that she has been stepping outside of the box, telling the talkshow host that she enjoys dating men in other countries.
“I’m dating. I can’t say that I’m done totally with American men but I am very excited about my finds over [in Europe],” she told Williams. “I think there is a cultural difference with men from other countries. They are not as bitter and jaded and closed up as a lot of the men here. I’m not saying all men, I can’t say that I’m done with American man, I’ll never say that,” she told Williams.
During our sit down with the 43-year-old beauty, the star also gave advice for young women looking for Mr. Right. “Broaden your spectrum,” she said.
