Stunna of the Month 16 : July: Taraji P. Henson
This was an easy one this sexy lady has been on my since the movie Baby Boy.
She has real acting skill and a face made for the big screen.
Whats great about her is that the actress has positioned her self in some great movies that has kept her out there in the public eye.
Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (2008)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) (post-production) .... Queenie
Hurricane Season (2008/I) (post-production) .... Dayna Collins
Not Easily Broken (2008) (completed) .... Clarice Clark
Talk to Me (2007)
Smokin' Aces (2006)
Something New (2006)
Animal (2005) (V)
Four Brothers (2005)
Hustle & Flow (2005)
Baby Boy (2001)
It's only a matter of time before she blows.
Henson was born in Washington, DC, and attended Oxon Hill High School in Oxon Hill, MD. Henson's first and middle names are of Arabic origin, meaning "hope". She is a descendant of Matthew Henson, co-discoverer of the North Pole.
She first attended NC A&T where she attempted to study Electrical Engineering. She failed Pre-Calculus so she transferred to Howard University.
Henson worked two jobs --in the morning as a secretary at the Pentagon; and in the night as a singing and dancing waitress on a dinner cruise ship-- to pay for Howard University. She graduated with a degree in Theater Arts. Her son Marcel was born in 1995; his father died unexpectedly in 1997. Her father died in 2007 .
So my Stunna pick for July is Taraji P. Henson
