Shining star of FOX’s hit hip-hop drama, Taraji P. Henson covers Allure Magazine‘s July 2015 issue.

In her interview, she reflects positively on personal and professional struggles, stating “I’ve had so many false starts. If it’s easy, what story are you going to tell? Nobody wants to hear about how easy it was. That doesn’t inspire anyone.”

She also reveals why doesn’t date her co-stars: “You have to stay professional. It is a business. I’m not letting no knucklehead dude come between my hard work and my money.”

Photographed by Carter Smith, she gives us 1970s diva glamour in Dsquared, J. Mendel and Temperley London dresses paired with voluminous curls styled by Garren.

She’s styled by Allure creative director Paul Cavaco, with makeup by Hung Vanngo.
