At 26, Taraji P. Henson moved to Los Angeles with $700 and a toddler son to pursue an acting career. Now, she’s getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Taraji P. Henson is a powerful woman and a powerful actress. She is an entertainer that fans cannot take their eyes off of due to her great acting ability,” said Hollywood Walk of Fame Producer Ana Martinez. “We welcome her bright star on our Walk of Fame.”
Over the course of 20-plus-year acting career, Henson has become a household name and an Oscar-nominated actress with films such as ‘Baby Boy,’ ‘Hustle & Flow,’ ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,’ and ‘Hidden Figures’ under her belt. She also won her first Golden Globe for her role of Cookie Lyon in ‘Empire.’
Henson’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony is set to take place on Monday, January 28. Well-deserved! Congratulation.
