Taraji P. Henson stopped by the E! station on the Oscars red carpet and had no problem channeling Cookie when meeting Ryan Seacrest. Accused of sexual misconduct by his former personal stylist Suzie Hardy, Seacrest is hosting E!’s live coverage of the red carpet.
Seacrest asked Henson to comment on Mary J. Blige’s two Oscar nominations, since the actress will present Blige’s performance during the show. However, she appeared to have other matters on her mind.
“You know, the universe has a way of taking care of the good people,” said Henson, tilting her head and putting her hand on Seacrest’s chin. “You know what I mean?”, she asked fixing him with a long look.
In case anyone missed her point, Henson’s next stop was ABC’s red carpet station, where she spoke with correspondent Wendi McLendon-Covey. When the emcee asked how she was doing, Henson replied, “I’m having a great time now that I’m in your company.”
