If you feel like you’ve been seeing Taraji P. Henson in every new movie it’s because you basically have! According to her she has been working for five years straight! Get ready to see her on a big screen near you again soon because her latest project, The Best Of Enemies, hits theaters tomorrow!
In the film Henson plays Ann Atwater, a civil rights activist who faces off against C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell), a local KKK leader, to fight for school desegregation in Durham, North Carolina, in 1971. She says enjoyed playing Atwater because she loves “portraying strong women who actually existed.” Adding that real life characters give “little girls someone to look up to.” She also loves fictional characters like Cookie, and adores the young girls who love that character. She calls them her “little cookie crumbs!”
Henson loves this movie and encourages everyone to see it. Grab your family and go have an epic movie night!
