Viewers may pay a lot of attention to what Taraji P. Henson wears as Cookie on Fox’s “Empire,” but guess who doesn’t? Taraji P. Henson.

“I remember one outfit I looked like I had aluminum foil on,” another time “a sushi roll,” and then there was a time she wore what resembled “fur noodles.” But, in the end, she’s fine with what’s picked for her.
“I’m not the costumer. I tell them bring it to me, I’ll put it on and make it work.”
