Empire’s Taraji P. Henson hit the stage for a panel discussion at E.W. Fest this weekend looking as fierce as her character, Cookie: formfitting black mini-dress with red polka dots, black and red plaid wrap, killer stilettos. She’s a blast to listen to when she talks about pretty much anything, constantly whipped into a frenzy of hand gestures and the word baby, but she was particularly worried by the number of photos she receives from fans who have dressed their babies and dogs like her fabulous character. “I got a picture of this poor dog being tortured,” she said. “He’s in a leopard fur, and a hat. I don’t know where they found this for this dog.”
