Read this: Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson didn’t have the most promising start in showbiz: The Southeast D.C. native was turned down by the Duke Ellington School for the Arts; a pregnancy in college slowed her career; she didn’t get cast in a big movie until she was 30. But now, at 40, the Oscar nominee is within arm’s reach of the A-list, reports our colleague Neely Tucker. It’s an interesting read – the rare showbiz story that spells out how much (or how little) a working actor gets paid.
