The girl is the full package. She’s smart, beautiful, incredibly talented, funny and seemingly down to earth in an industry that can be very superficial. It was probably this “around the way girl” type quality that influenced Ebony Magazine to put the Hollywood star and ‘No Good Deed’ actor on the cover of their October issue.

During the interview, Taraji talked about her character in the movie, which she helped to produce, her guilty pleasure and using her celebrity status to get perks.

On a more serious note, she says that after all she’s accomplished there are still times where she’s treated like a D-lister. But she’s found a way to rise above it all.’

‘No Good Deed’ also stars Idris Elba.

Read excerpts from the issue:

On her “No Good Deed” character

It’s a real girl-power film; she never stops fighting. It delivers the message that you don’t ever have to become the victim.

On her career

I’m still treated like I’m on the D-list. I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved. When people tell me no, I get hyped. Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.

On what body part she will have to fix in five years

My stomach. I get it from my mom, who had to get a tummy tuck because she didn’t exercise. I try to work out at least five days a week. But if it reaches the point where I am not satisfied, I’m just going to be like, ‘Can you suck this out of me?’ Thanks!

On her No. 1 guilty pleasure

Watching ratchet, ratchet television—like any of the Real Housewives shows, especially when they were fighting and a girl got her weave snatched out—that is my guilty pleasure. Sometimes, I’ll just sit in front of the TV, screaming, “Ratchet, ratchet, ratchet! Where’s the ratchet TV?”

On the last thing she used her celeb status to get

To get my fat a– into a restaurant. If someone tells me there’s a wait, I’ll walk right to the front of the line like, “I need a table now. I need to eat, and I want this. So let’s work this out.”

Taraji P. Henson

On the best advice she’s ever received

“My dad always told me to get from around those who have the same problem and get around people who have a solution.”
