Taraji P. Henson: I was paid ‘sofa change’ for ‘Benjamin Button’

Taraji P. Henson says she was paid “sofa change” compared to her co-stars for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. She revealed in her memoir she made “less than two percent” of Brad Pitt’s salary for the 2008 movie. She stars as Cookie Lyon on the Fox series Empire.

Both Brad and Cate got millions. Me? With bated breath, I sat by the phone for hours, waiting for Vince [her manager] to call and tell me the number that I thought would make me feel good: somewhere in the mid six figures — no doubt a mere percentage of what Brad was bringing home to Angelina and their beautiful babies, but something worthy of a solid up-and-coming actress with a decent amount of critical acclaim for her work. Alas, that request was dead on arrival. “I’m sorry, Taraji,” Vince said quietly when we finally connected. “They came in at the lowest of six figures. I convinced them to add in a little more, but that’s as high as they’d go.” There was one other thing: I’d have to agree to pay my own location fees while filming in New Orleans, meaning three months of hotel expenses would be coming directly out of my pocket. Insult, meet injury.

Top 5 Highlights of “Empire” EP. 10

Last night [Mar 12] was jaw dropping with guest appearances from Mary J Blidge and Jennifer Hudson. Luscious was faced with the ugly truths of his past. It is apparent that Luscious can not deal with imperfections or flaws. If the situation does not fit his agenda he will do anything to hide or get rid of the blemish. Killing Bunkie, Ignoring Andre’s bipolar disorder, arranging a fake marriage for Jamal, and even taking Camellia out of Hakeem’s life. Do you see the pattern?

Despite trying to hide those ugly truths, they all blew up in his face last night. While Luscious deals with his own demons, Olivia has her own troubles from her past. Cookie ignites a fire with Malcolm.  Check out my top 5 highlights below.
