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.
From the Rough hits theaters April 25.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
