In this issue, she talks about her role in Empire as Cookie and a little about her life.
She says “Cookie has all kinds of fans, all. I get it. She’s my alter ego — we all need a Sasha Fierce”.
The movie star who is 45 years of age talks about getting her third Emmy nomination, shooting the third season of Empire, the release of her memoir, Around the Way Girl , a new cosmetics line with MAC, and a starring role in the new film Hidden Figures, where she plays real-life NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson.
Talking about her movie role she says “This is my first time carrying a show and then going to carry a movie. That’s a lot. It’s so stressful, and I had to really check myself because it’s so easy to take for granted when you get to a certain level. Like check yourself because people pray to be here.”
