Taraji P. Henson is giving fans a bit more than they’re accustomed to seeing in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. The actress poses topless in the issue, which also features her on the cover sporting a crown.
The spread is a promotional move for her hit show Empire, a role which just landed her a third Emmy nomination. “Cookie has all kinds of fans, all,” says Henson of her part on the show. “I get it. She’s my alter ego — we all need a Sasha Fierce [Beyoncé’s alter-ego].”
“Cookie has pushed me to be a better performer/actor because she requires so much of my energy. She’s a very difficult character to portray because she can come off stereotypical, loud, sassy so it’s very important that I give her depth, that I give her the whys to the reasons she acts the way she does.”
As for Season 3 of the show, Henson says the theme will be a very clear “light versus dark.”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
