Taraji P. Henson Says”Empire” Success Has Made It Harder To Get A Date
Who wouldn’t want to date Taraji P. Henson??
Via CBS News:
Mo’ money, mo’ problems, it seems for Empire star Taraji P. Henson. The Oscar-nominated actress told ET that while her career has reached a new plateau, her love life is tanking.
“I think the more successful you get, the more intimidated [men] get, because they feel like they can’t approach me,” the 44-year-old actress said. “Or they’re afraid to approach me.”
You can’t blame some guys for thinking that Henson is out of their league. The actress’ “Empire” character, Cookie Lyon, is in a league all her own, as the unofficial queen of primetime television. Henson opened up about how her character will keep the dysfunctional Lyon family together.
“A whole lot of love,” she said. “Lucious and Cookie can love each other one minute, hate each other the next, but let something go wrong with one of the boys…they forget all of their differences.”
As Henson continues her real-life search for “Mr. Right,” other co-stars have been more lucky in love. Grace Gealey is engaged to co-star Trai Byers and Kaitlin Doubleday will be saying “I do” to her deejay fiancé Devin Lucien. The timing of their engagements is convenient for Gealey and Doubleday as it could give them a chance to bounce wedding ideas off of each other.
