Taraji P. Henson reaches a new career milestone, as she received her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame yesterday, January 28th. After two decades of work, she has a permanent stamp of recognition. Although she’s been praised for her acting, throughout the years, this moment is monumental for her.

In her career, Taraji P. Henson has had many accomplishments, including an Academy Award nomination, three Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe win. She has over three dozen projects under her belt. The projects include Proud Mary, Hustle & Flow, Hidden Figures, Baby Boy, and more. On TV, she’s played on such shows as “Person of Interest,” “The Division,” and “Empire,”

During the ceremony, Taraji P. Henson got tearful, as she was honored with the star, and dedicated it her grandmother, mother, and son. She was emotional because her family was there as she explained:

 

‘Everything I do, I work so hard to make them proud.’

“It means I’ve been doing something important in Hollywood. For me, it’s important because my son, my mom, my grandmother, who is still alive and is 94, will be there.”

She also goes on to say:

“This 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.I never focused on my circumstances. I focused on my dream and looked 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.”

“I’ve been doing this for 20 years. It took me a minute to get to this level. I miss the old days, I must say…”

During her ceremony, Henson is spotted posing with her former NFL player fiancé, Kelvin Hayden over the star as the two share a kiss.

 

On “Empire,” Henson is the runaway star of the show. She contributed some of the most quotable lines throughout the series, which led to the show and the character trending on social media. In addition to the catchy songs, familial drama and incredible lifestyles, “Empire” has also tackled tough sociological and economical issues including living with HIV, data privacy, domestic violence and abuse.

In 2019, Henson has high hopes, as she is working on a film about Emmett Till. She has a newfound love for voice-over roles following her turn in Ralph Breaks the Internet. On February 8th, Taraji starts the New Year with the release of What Men Want, a remake of the 2000 film What Women Want.
