I came from nothing, was deprived all my life, so when you get money, you go big!" ......... Taraji P. Henson

Oscar winning actress and Star of hit TV show "Empire", Taraji P. Henson, granted Harper’s Bazaar    an interview recently where she talked about her career, her type of man and making it. Excerpts......

On when her Empire co-star, Terrance Howard told her she would be a star in 2 weeks…….

"I was like, 'Huh?'" Henson recalls. "Then I got on Twitter and was like, 'You're right.' I've seen babies dressed up like Cookie, men dressed up like Cookie, dogs dressed up like Cookie." She offers a sly note. "But you have to be into drag. If you're not, it may not come off right." Her favorite Cookie outfit so far? "Alaïa black catsuit, hands down. I've even worn some of my own stuff, like my Balmain leather. I have to meet [Balmain designer] Olivier Rousteing; I need to be his friend."

On going big once you "make it”……………….. "It took me a minute to get on the chic bus," she says. "I was coming from the era of Lil' Kim and Mary J. Blige, you know, ghetto fabulous. I came from nothing, was deprived all my life, so when you get money, you go big!"

On one of the reasons why she isn’t dating……
"I don't want to just bring a man around. Marcell knows how to gauge, Are you here for me, or do you like my mother?"

On her type of man…..

"He is funny, has personality, he doesn't take himself too seriously. He needs to be confident in who he is, confident to let me be who I am. And let me shine, you know? My light is only going to enhance his light."
