On working years to get to where she is at:

I’m just gonna keep amassing an audience,” says the Oscar– and Emmy-nominated actress. “Everything was strategically planned. This is what all my efforts are for.”

On the importance of taking the business of acting seriously:

These kids are thinking they can do reality TV and come and do this craft that I studied, sweated and grinded,” says Henson. “People forget it’s a craft because it’s so pop now…Can they make me believe the words coming out of their mouth?”
