Taraji P. Henson wears a colorful skirt while leaving NBC Studios following an appearance on The Today Show on Monday morning (February 4) in New York City.

The Empire actress was on the show to promote her new film What Men Want, in theaters this weekend. Taraji later went to SiriusXM Studios for another interview.

On Today, Taraji opened up about what she told her co-star Jussie Smollett after he was attacked in Chicago last week.

“I just told him to walk in his truth, just stay the Jussie that everybody loves,” she said. “And you saw the outpour of love that he had, so he has touched a lot of people, in his career. So, I just told him just walk in your truth, baby, no one can take that from you.”
