Taraji P. Henson Says Dating Has Been Hard Since Empire Success

Screen Shot 2015-08-27 at 10.21.28 AMTaraji P. Henson has been riding the success of Empire, but it’s not helping her dating life.

“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 in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “Or they’re afraid to approach me.”

We can definitely see how one could be intimidated by Henson, especially since some people may not be able to disconnect Henson from her ‘Cookie’ persona.

As Empire’s second season is about to start, Henson also gave some insight on what to expect out of her infamous character and Lucious Lyon.

“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.”

“Empire” kicks off its second season on Sept. 23.

    Maybe it’s like Rita Hayworth said, but in Taraji’s case, “Men go to bed with Cookie but wake up with me.”

    Many celebrities have expressed the same words on dating as Taraji has mentioned. Many people are intimidated by celebrities and I wish the best for her on the dating front. Taraji P. Henson is from the DMV, so she’s very down to Earth.
