Viewers may pay a lot of attention to what Taraji P Henson wears as Cookie on Fox’s Empire, but guess who doesn’t? The actor herself.

“It’s not my job,” Henson told TV critics Monday at a bi-annual press event.

She added that some actresses get caught up with what their character would and would not wear but she’s personally too busy paying attention to her lines.

The third season of Empire will pat a lot of attention to Taraji’s character on the show, Cookie. (FX)

That’s not to say that some outfits have caused her to have colourful commentary.

“I remember one outfit I looked like I had aluminum foil on,” another time “a sushi roll,” and then there was a time she wore what resembled “fur noodles.” But, in the end, she’s fine with what’s picked for her.

“I’m not the costumer. I tell them bring it to me, I’ll put it on and make it work.”

Executive producer Ilene Chaiken teased Taye Digg’s arc in season three, saying he enters the show interacting with Jussie Smollett’s Jamal, but he quickly becomes “all about Cookie.”

Also teased, a possible spinoff on Cookie. First, she’d logically have to separate herself from her on again, off again love, Luscious. That, Chaiken says, she will try to do in season three.
