WHY TARAJI P. HENSON WANTS TIME ALONE.

WHY TARAJI P. HENSON WANTS TIME ALONE.

*January 2018 will never be the same!

Next month, Taraji P. Henson takes center stage in her new Sony Pictures Entertainment film “Proud Mary.“ The leading lady plays a hit woman whose life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy.

EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas was on set in Boston to talk to Henson – who’s also the executive producer of the film – about why she loves time alone, her legacy, and challenges with the role.

Henson: Because this is purely my film, I’m number one…When no one else is here, I’m here. I’m the captain of the ship so whatever my mood is, is how the set is going be. Things happen…you get stressed and everybody’s emotions and nerves are high all the time, so I try to be the calm to the storm. I try to come in and laugh and joke. I like to have fun, I like to laugh, and unfortunately I haven’t got my comedy (movie role) yet … [laughing]

I want my legacy … When people talk about me, I want them to say ‘I was sunshine, funny, made them laugh, and I hugged them. That’s what I learned from being number one [laughing].

Henson: It’s really hard, I’m a people person, but I don’t like to be a people person every day. And the fans … sometimes I just wanna sit back and watch y’all [laughing]. That’s becoming harder to do, so I love time alone.

My mom’s like, ‘you don’t call.’ I say, ‘Ma, I talk so much. Sometimes I get sick of hearing myself.’ I literally like to sit in my house and be quiet. Every property I own has a view…I’m a creative thinker so my mind has to be able to be free [chuckles]. You know, simple…cooking, catching up on TV, and movies. Even traveling is becoming a pain in the butt because I fly so much. I just bought a house in LA that’s like a resort. So when I go home, I really go to a vacation.

Henson: The challenge for me was how to make a character people could really hate, likeable. She does kill a lot of people, but for a good reason. And the action stuff. I really hurt my arm. When you see action stuff, you’re like, ‘Oh, that’s fine. I can do that! It doesn’t look too dangerous,’ but just one false move and you hit the wrong bone at the wrong angle. I wear pads now, no matter how simple the stunt looks. I learned my lesson.
