Taraji P. Henson says she can’t do ‘Cookie’ forever. She doesn’t see “Empire,” being a “Law & Order,” type of thing. Taraji told Variety, “I could not do this forever. No. Cookie wears me out! She drains me. She is emotionally all over the place. Those writers, they just keep pushing my emotions with every episode. By the 18th episode [of each season], I’m dead. I got to get far away. I don’t wear animal print. I cut my hair into a bob. I don’t wear a weave because I’ve got to get as far away from Cookie as possible.” More here.
