Actress Taraji P Henson has managed to keep the roles coming in, but she still isn’t complacent about where she fits in today’s Hollywood. In fact, Taraji says that she loathes that she is always grouped together with actresses she feels aren’t as accomplished.
The Oscar nominated actress tells Ebony Magazine:
“I’m treated like I’m on the D-list. I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved.
“When people tell me ‘no,’ I get hyped. Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.”
Taraji covers the October issue of Ebony Magazine. Check out the cover below:
In related news, Taraji and Idris Elba’s new film “No Good Deed” topped the box office in its opening week. The film earned around $24.6 million despite only being shown in 2,175 locations.
