Taraji P. Henson on Benjamin Button: I Stared at That Ugly Baby Until I Thought it Was Cute!

After nabbing a SAG award nomination for her supporting role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Taraji P. Henson revealed her secret to falling in love with an reverse-aging robotic doll.

“I knew that the moment Queenie saw Benjamin, she had to fall in love with him right away, because if she didn’t, the audience wouldn’t,” Henson, 38, tells Entertainment Weekly.

“So I stared at that little ugly animatronic baby,” she added of her role as Brad Pitt’s adopted mother. “I stared at it so much that after a while I thought it was cute!”

EW says the actress, best-known for her role in 2005’s Hustle & Flow, is a huge contender and on the “short list” for a supporting actress Oscar award.
