Congratulations are in order as Oscar and Emmy-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson received an star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. This is such an honor for any entertainer.
We most recently know Henson from her infamous role as Cookie Lyon on Fox's Empire. She calls the feeling "surreal."
She states, “really confirms that in spite of the circumstances in your life whether you were born into them or they just happened along the way, it doesn’t matter because with God, all things are possible. I want to say to all of the little brown babies all over the world, `Look at me and see you.’ I was a single mom, raised by a single mom and lived in the hood,” the actress said. “I never focused on my circumstances. I focused on my dream and look at God. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a journey through history and today my legacy will be forever etched in the history of Hollywood. I’ve worked so hard for this. It’s surreal.”
