A claim that Taraji P. Henson made in her 2016 memoir has come back to the light, and it’s biting former Hollywood producer Harney Weinstein in the backside. In her memoir, Around The Way Girl, Henson wrote that she once lost out on a huge acting role because a certain, unnamed someone wanted to give it to a white actress instead. According to Henson, a top executive read the script and said that he couldn’t see a black woman playing the role. The part in question was that of an out-of-control, stripper mom in the film St. Vincent. Henson claims that writer-director Theodore Melfi penned that part specifically with Henson in mind, however, others in the industry didn’t want her and instead went with actress Naomi Watts.
