Taraji P. Henson might have been nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but according to the actress, she isn’t treated like an Academy Award nominated, accomplished celebrity.
“I’m treated like I’m on the D-list,” the 44-year-old told Ebony magazine for their October issue. “I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved.”
She continued, “When people tell me ‘no,’ I get hyped,” she says. “Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.”
During Henson’s interview with the mag, the star revealed that although she is treated like D-lister, she still manages to use her star power to get what she wants. “To get my fat ass into a restaurant. If someone tells me there’s a wait, I’ll walk right to the front of the line like, ‘I need a table now. I need to eat, and I want this. So let’s work this out,'” she said when asked what was the last thing she used your celeb status to get.
