HB’s 5 Star Treatment is a quirky, off-the-wall way to get to know a few of your fave celebs outside of the questions they are usually asked. From breakup remedies to moments of lust, #TeamBeautiful digs deep and gives your fave celebs something to think about with our 5 Star Treatment.

Taraji P. Henson is such a best friend of mine…in my head. I’ve only met her twice, but each time we chatted, she made me feel like I was one of her girls. We’d share laughter with our heads tilted back and mouths wide open, she’d be completely candid about her triumphs, her fears and where she is taking her career and instead of quietly nodding along, I’d always insert something insightful into the conversation, like,”You’re on your right path. I see it. Just walk it.”

Maybe it’s Henson’s easy around-the-way-girl personality, her big, innocent eyes or her smile that can heat up your soul like chicken soup? Either way, I’ve always regarded her like her dynamic character, Yvette, in “Baby Boy–” completely relatable and deserving of an entire team rooting for her. And the cheering works because Henson’s career has never slowed down. Currently acting as Detective Carter in CBS’ “Person Of Interest” and patiently waiting for the January 2014 release of her latest thriller, “No Good Deed,” with Idris Elba, Taraji’s career is obviously soaring.

Taking some time to pay attention to what’s going here down on Earth, Taraji and I gushed over everything from men we drool over to what it takes to get over a man.

*If I was stranded on a desert island I’d bring…my son–how many people can I bring? I’ll bring three people. With the right people, you can make the right things happen. My son, my best friend and my mom.

**How do you express your love…Cooking. I love to cook.

You gonna make them tacos?

[screams and laughs] Girl, I got better things on the menu, honey. My friends love my greens, my lasagna or chili. I make a really good chili. Oh and a crab boil!

*** The best way to get over a breakup…Wine, my girlfriends and my dog.

**** The one thing that I don’t like about myself…When you say that to me, I think in my mind what I need to work on the most and that’s listening. Listening in my personal life–I do it very well when the camera is running and I am getting paid for that. In my life, I kind of skip it.

*****What was your last moment of lust…I don’t really do blogs, but my cousins and I have a cousin chat line (we’re really close) and they’re younger than me and they search the internet and post pictures they find. There was this picture of Serge Ibaka–have you seen that picture?!

He went without his underwear and his male member was shown! [laughs] I have been looking at that, truth be told–all day. When I need inspiration, I go back to took at that. [laughs]
