“A woman is gentle, soft, delicate, and a man’s position is to protect her, help her up stairs, make sure she’s in the car safely first. Take good care of your woman, and the sky’s the limit!”-Taraji P. Henson
She puts the “f” in fabulous! Actress Taraji P. Henson is making waves in Hollywood, delivering a realness to the big screen that keeps fans wanting more.
The Washington, D.C. native was born Taraji Penda Henson. After attending school in Maryland, Taraji went on to North Carolina A&T to study electrical engineering. Then after transferring to Howard University, Taraji followed her true passion and earned her degree in theater arts.
Taraji has blossomed into a truly talented actress, from her memorable role as Yvette in “Baby Boy” to her role as Queenie in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, which garnered her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination in 2009. And she’s no stranger to the small screen. She’s been on the cast of many sitcoms including The Division, Boston Legal, House, CSI and, most recently, Person of Interest.
Taraji is definitely a busy woman but still manages to make time for dating. She’s been rumored to have dated Tyrese Gibson, Common, Hill Harper and Drake. On having off-screen romances with actors, she says this in an interview with Wendy Williams:
“I just do not mix business with pleasure. I just don’t. I think the scenes, those love scenes, would be different if we crossed that line. And I don’t think it would have as much impact or much fire because myself and the actor, we crossed the line already…And if you had sex with them, why would they want to work with you again?”
We love Single and living fab “It Girl” Taraji P. Henson! She’s a complete package and with the beauty and confidence that she emits, who wouldn’t be a fan?
