Taraji P. Henson is slaying covers once again in her latest spread for United Airlines’ Rhapsody October 2017 issue. Lensed by Dennis Leupold, the Hollywood bombshell serves serious face in a flawless beauty beat and a striking deep red lip.
Styled by Jason Bolden, the Empire star poses it up in a series of chiffon pieces, silk gowns and trendy-chic mesh numbers. Inside, she opens up about not feeling confident on screen, her love life and more.
“Cookie scared the life out of me. I was like, ‘Do we need this character on TV representing black women? How is this going to help us?’ But fear is a sure sign I need to do the role. If it doesn’t scare me, I don’t do it—that’s too easy.”
