Everyone's favorite queen, Taraji P. Henson, graces the cover of W magazine's August issue. Take a moment to gaze upon this flawless woman.

Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for W Magazine
Not only would I never be offered a character like Cookie in a movie, but she doesn't exist. Cookie is bold and crazy, and she loves the struggle. She started from nothing, and now she's at the top. In that way, we're alike: Cookie is the American Dream.

I was like, This is stupid. Hip-hop—dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb. But then I started to think, Cookie is going to piss so many people off! She hits her son with a broom; she talks back. Clearly, this was a challenge.
It was a struggle. But my son grew as my career grew. I never had a nanny—I did TV so I could be home with him. I wasn't making my millions, but I was able to fulfill my dreams and be a mother.
