Henson is set to mark another career milestone as she receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this Jan 28th. Although she has received critical praise and awards recognition over the years such as, an Academy Award nomination, three Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe win, this is special to her in a different way.
Henson got her Oscar nomination in 2008 for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Her big break came via the 2001 movie Baby Boy, co-starring with Tyrese Gibson, directed by John Singleton. “Taraji P Henson is a powerful woman and a powerful actress. She is an entertainer that fans cannot take their eyes off of due to her great acting ability,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame. “We welcome her bright star on our Walk Of Fame.”
“I want to be around forever and to show women that you have to dream big,” Mrs.Henson said as she received her everlasting mark in Hollywood. We welcome Taraji P. Henson with many more stars to come. Congratulations!
