What Taraji P. Henson Wants: Lyft Undercover

Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson has done it all: starred as a NASA mathematician in Hidden Figures, played the role of Shug in Hustle & Flow, and commanded as the indomitable Cookie in the hit series Empire. But now? Now she's wondering What Men Want — her character is Ali Davis, a sports agent who’s constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When Ali is passed up for a well-deserved promotion, she questions what else she needs to do to succeed ... until she gains the ability to hear men’s thoughts.

Luckily, Taraji was able to use some of those much-revered acting chops to fool some passengers in the latest episode of Lyft Undercover. And despite Taraji offering her unsuspecting (well, some of them were unsuspecting) passengers a chocolate chip cookie or two, it wasn't until she removed her sunglasses did some of them finally catch on.

And not only is Taraji a (very) accomplished actor, but she’s also the founder of the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, an organization that supports groups that educate, celebrate, and create awareness around the positive impact of mental health wellness for African-Americans.
