This little cutie steals the show in the film. You might of seen him in the trailers with his cute “Wakanda Forever” chant with a very unusual face mask! He was too cute on this carpet and handled himself so well and mature of his age. I can’t wait to see him in more movies in the future!

TARAJI INTERVIEW

Q: How did it feel to do What Men Want in Atlanta?

Taraji: I have done several films in Atlanta, and none of them had anything to do with Atlanta. This was the first time I shot a film that is based in Atlanta, that is filmed in Atlanta, this character lives in Atlanta and I was like yessss finally! It’s weird when you shooting in another place and your character lives in another city, its like you’re telling a dirty little lie. It felt good to uplift Atlanta, I’ve been coming to Atlanta since way before my son was born. I love this place.

I remember when the boom started happening and everyone started coming down here in the early 90s. My son was born in ’94, I remember coming down here since 1990. I remember what it [Atlanta] was than what it is today. This place is growing, and it’s a lot of people moving down here. Look at it now, now we are doing movies about Atlanta! That’s amazing!

Q: What did you learn while filming something different of What Men Want?

Taraji: You know what? I don’t think men want anything different than what women want, especially when it comes to relationships. They want security, they want respect, unconditional love like a mother. They want to have the love of a mother, just like we do. We want someone to feel our love and lift us up and thats what mothers do. Mothers do the same thing.

They [men] may express it differently, but deep down they want the same thing.

Thank you for interviewing with both Kim Ford (JubileeMag.com) & I. Also congrats to your upcoming Walk of Fame Star in Los Angeles.

TRAILER

Ali Davis (Taraji P.Henson) is a successful sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what more she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world, until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts. With her newfound power, Ali looks to outsmart her colleagues as she races to sign the next basketball superstar, but the lengths she has to go to will put her relationship with her best friends and a potential new love interest to the test.

SPECIAL CAMEO BY ME

This is me on the day of set for the movie What Men Want. My small cameo role, if you do see me, I will be in a “church/wedding” scene as a guest. Let’s just say it was a really crazy scene. You will see my face a few times here. My hair was much shorter too (filmed May 2018) when I just cut my hair. Look for me in a teal dress, come back on this post and comment if you saw me!

Excited – check out my cameo in What Men Want

WHAT MEN WANT is in theaters on February 8, 2019 #WHATMENWANT

Will You Look Out for My Cameo in This Movie?
