Everybody’s favorite home girl Taraji P. Henson, landed the October cover of Marie Claire and she dishes on the fourth season of Empire, her new role as a bad ass assassin in Proud Mary and of course all things love and her admiration for black people.

In a sit-down with Janet Mock, the 47-year-old opened up about being single in Hollywood.

“I would love to [be in a relationship], but he has to see how I move and deal with it, because I don’t have time to explain. I’ve got work to do.”

In 2015 Henson told Steve Harvey, “if there’s nothing on this finger, if this finger is naked, no one gets claimed.” Watch below.

And when it comes to her love for black people, she told Marie Claire, “I love black people. I love telling stories. I want these little girls to study me like I studied Meryl and Bette Davis and Carol Burnett. I want them to study my work, because I put a lot of work in, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.

Take a look at a few more images from her spread below.
