We sat down with Taraji to learn more about her work and what she watches.
What does your watchlist say about you?
Taraji P. Henson: My watchlist says that I’m someone who loves to laugh and I’m always rooting for the underdog. My picks should hopefully give you insight into people’s lives and how we should open up our hearts and minds.
What’s your favorite holiday ritual?
Taraji P. Henson: My holiday ritual is watching “The Christmas Story” on repeat.
What’s your top choice genre?
Taraji P. Henson: Comedy is my top choice. I always want to laugh! And I think the best way to teach is through Comedy because you get to laugh, but you also don’t feel like you’re being preached to.
Do you have a favorite guilty pleasure?
Taraji P. Henson: I love watching reality TV, especially any of the Real Housewives franchises!
What’s one rule you have for watching TV or movies with a group?
Taraji P. Henson: Shut up and be quiet! I don’t want to hear you next to me talking or crunching on your popcorn.
Who’s your favorite person to nerd out about shows and movies with?
Taraji P. Henson: My best friend since the seventh grade. She was also an art student with me, and we grew up watching the movies on my watchlist together like “Sixteen Candles” and “Beaches.”
What’s the best way to watch your watchlist?
Taraji P. Henson: Wear some comfy sweats or PJs on the sofa with the lights off. Be sure to turn the sound on loud!
So get comfy and settle into Taraji’s watchlist on Google TV, rolling out over the next few days. Be sure to share with us your favorites using #WatchWithMe!
