Award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson is the actual epitome of black girl magic as she stuns on the cover of PorterEdit.

In her latest interview, the Empire star delves into her life off-screen, learning how to say no to movie studios who won’t pay her what she is worth or what they pay her white counterparts and her life as a single mother raising her twenty-four year old son.

Styled by Tracy Taylor and photographed by Sam Taylor Johnson, for Net A Porter’s digital magazine PorterEdit, Taraji highlights some of the essential fashion pieces every fashionable woman owns and talks about her breakthrough role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button– which got her nominated for an Academy Award. She talks also about the huge pay gap between her and the other cast members as well as how she now looks forward to negotiating her pay. Taraji also opens up about her mental health, her father, her background and even dealing with her workaholism as a single mother in the interview.
