Taraji P. Henson Says That “B*tch” Cookie Lyon Stole “My Identity”



Empire star Taraji P. Henson might play the role of Cookie Lyon to mere perfection, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the actress has to like her character.

Henson stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday night and opened up about playing the sexy, yet hot headed wife of Empire Records CEO, Lucious Lyon. “She’s sort of my alter ego,” Henson explained when asked if “any Cookie has “crept into Taraji.”

And when it comes to possibly using Cookie in “her real life,” Taraji would rather stay away from that as possible. “No, I hate that b*tch. She’s stolen my identity. No one ever calls me by my name anymore. They call me ‘Cookie.'”

Seth then asked “does it work when you need to get into a restaurant, does being Cookie help.” To that Henson replied, “Absolutely.”
