‘Empire’ actress Taraji P. Henson – who has a 21-year-old son Marcell from a past relationship – is currently single and is looking for a man who doesn’t take himself seriously and won’t try to change her.
Asked her type, she said: ‘He is funny, has personality, he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He needs to be confident in who he is, confident to let me be who I am. And let me shine, you know? My light is only going to enhance his light.’
But the 44-year-old actress admits she has always been cautious about dating and having guys around her son.
She added in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine: ‘My dad said to him, ‘People are going to try to be your friend because of what your mother does.’ That stuck.
‘Even guys who try to be a mentor to him — because, you know, his father was murdered when Marcell was nine — so I was very particular about not dating.
‘I don’t want to just bring a man around. Marcell knows how to gauge, Are you here for me, or do you like my mother?’
