We all love us a bit of Cookie, but according to Cookie herself, not like Lee Daniels does!

In a hilarious video Taraji P. Henson posted to Instagram last night, Empire’s co-creator and executive producer Lee Daniels is shown wearing a woman’s wig—to impersonate Cookie, of course. “He wants to be Cookie, but he will never be Cookie!” joked Henson.

Behind-the-scenes of Empire seems just as entertaining as the show. Are you ready for season 2 on September 23?
