Star American actress, Taraji P. Henson has been featured on the January issue of Boston Common. Taraji looked ageless as she stunned in Gucci and Zimmerman dresses for the spread and cover of the magazine.
The 48-year-old talented actress, in an interview with the magazine, discussed her latest movie, What Men Want, Me Too movement and relationships.
Below are some excerpts from the interview.
On the Me Too movement in What Men Want: “There’s a heated debate between my character and her boss where he says, If it weren’t for this #MeToo movement, I’d fire your ass! So I say, oh, you’re not going to fire me because I’m a woman? and he goes, I didn’t say that! And I say, So you’re not going to fire me because I’m a black woman! We go there, baby—we go all the way there! Audiences are not dumb, and I don’t want to be in a movie that’s not dealing with the truth.”
On gender in American society: “You get a lot of wisecracks about what men want, but I think men want the same things women want in a relationship. You want trust; you want loyalty; you want to feel safe; you want unconditional love. Everyone wants a mate.”
