‘No Good Deed’ Star Taraji P. Henson Says She’s Still Treated Like D-Lister

0

Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson has blasted movie industry executives for failing to recognise her career achievements, insisting she is constantly treated like a “D-list” celebrity.

The No Good Deed star, who scored an Academy Award nomination in 2009 for her role alongside Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, claims she still struggles to stand out from other black actresses despite winning critical acclaim for her past work, including her part in the Emmy Award-nominated TV movie Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story in 2011.

She tells Ebony magazine, “I’m treated like I’m on the D-list. I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved.”

But Henson refuses to let the slight get her down.

She adds, “When people tell me ‘no’, I get hyped. Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.”
