Taraji P. Henson covers the February issue of Upscale magazine with quite the no-nonsense pose. Showing off her petite bod in what looks like a Herve Leger bandage dress, the actress dishes on her role in the highly anticipated film, Think Like a Man.

“You’ve never seen me play this girl. She’s a b****. And she’s the pretty girl in the film,” Henson says, as if she’s not beautiful in every role. She also reveals that the part was originally written for a Caucasian woman, but Henson told the casting department, “If you don’t let me get that role, I don’t need to be in this movie at all.” Spoken like a true Academy Award nominee.

Even sassier is Henson’s fluffy ‘do. The voluminous style — a little longer than her usual bob — is perfect winter weather hair.
