Come through Taraji!!! Our fairy godmother is showing off her BOLD, CLASSY, & Oh So SASSY style on the October cover of Ebony magazine and we are loving it! In the magazine Taraji is keeping it all the way real per usual! She talks about her favorite guilty pleasure, her new movie "No Good Deed", and why Hollywood still treats her like a D-list celebrity!
On Hollywood treating her like a D-list celebrity:
"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 her favorite 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? "
What body part she would fix if she had to:
"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 the best advice she 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."
On how she uses her star power:
"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."
On her character in "No Good Deed" :
"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.”
