It's a case of, mistaken identity. And my character is the only one that believes them. Working with Steve Carell was, very challenging because you know, he's funny. And he and Tina together, it was hard for me to stay focused and not laugh, so I blew a lot of takes [LAUGH]. And I'm silly anyway, so it just, he just has to look at me and I go, [NOISE], I mean it just [LAUGH] . Working with Jaden was such a pleasure. As a mom, he is the best kid. You know, Will and Jada are incredible parents, very hands on. And he's just intelligent, he has charisma. He has all the makings of a superstar. You know, when, when you're a kid, and you dream and you see images of yourself, I think is really special because Essence is 4years old this year. And I will be 40 in September. And, you know, as a child coming up dreaming and one day I want to be on the cover huh, wow. What a way to start the next decade [LAUGH]. I'm Taraji P Henson and you're watching Essence TV.
