Throwback Thursday: "Empire" Star Taraji P. Henson

Dating tips from the sexy scene-stealer of TV's hottest show.

Wanna date Taraji? Well, Cookie's got some rules.

Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) is currently stealing scenes as the sharp-tongued, shade-throwing matriarch on TV's hottest show, Empire (Wednesdays at 9 on FOX). For today's Throwback Thursday, we're flash-backing to the time the scorching star sizzled in a spread for Men's Fitness (September 2009). The then-38-year-old single mom told us the guys she dates are often intimidated. "Most men are fragile," she says. "I'm a successful woman, in the public eye, and raising a kid by myself. It can leave guys feeling like, 'Damn, how can I have a chance?'" Answer: "Just be a man!" Read on for more of Taraji's rules—and for even more sexy images from her Men's Fitness shoot.
