Taraji P. Henson much like he acting alter ego Cookie Lyon has never been one to bite her tongue even if it may cost her.  Taraji just like Cookie has to work hard not only to prove herself but to provide for herself.  With all of the accolades in recent film history that Taraji P. Henson has garnered her paycheck still reflects almost as we just seen her on ‘Baby Boy’.

Taraji P. Henson recent sat down with T.I. on his podcast  ‘ExpediTIously’ to talk about how she is always waiting on someone there had to be that moment when ‘they’ had to wait on her.  And how she works hard because she has to because it is in fact hard to be a black actress in a white Hollywood.

BTW:  It’s because of what she says in this interview that shines the real importance in what Tyler Perry has done in Atlanta for people of color in film.
