Real talk: Taraji P. Henson discusses mental health and menopause

“There are things that happen to us physically, and we get so caught up in the aesthetics that we really never talk about perimenopause, menopause, and how that directly affects you mentally. Depression, lows and you not knowing where this s— is coming from. Yes, we look good, but I had to say something.”

And the actress briefly discussed her romance with Kelvin Hayden, whom she revealed she will be tying the knot with “this summer.”

She confessed: “We plan to get married this summer. He can’t wait. He’s like, ‘I want my ring.’ ”

The full interview with Henson is available in the March/April 2020 issue of Essence magazine, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020.
