Taraji P. Henson: Stop Sending Cookie All the Cookies


One of the perks of playing a character with the name Cookie means unoriginal fans love to send you actual cookies. Unfortunately for Taraji P. Henson, who has to wear all of Cookie's revealing outfits, that presents a giant problem. As she politely pled on Kimmel: Take these cookies away! No more. Not sugarless, not vegan, not plain ol' chocolate (her fave); she's had enough. What Henson would prefer instead is that you please send her Michelle Obama, who apparently asked Lee Daniels for Henson at a recent state dinner (she couldn't attend). Yep, the First Family is as addicted to Empire as the rest of us.
