Being a celebrity in the age of social media is a lot more complicated than in the years before Twitter and other popular platforms. Fans and critics are able to get even closer to those they idolize or even hate with just the click of a button. It doesn’t always have its advantages, as Empire alum Taraji P. Henson spoke about having social media as someone in the limelight. 

While a guest on Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, Taraji P. Henson got candid about her fame. She’s been acting since the late 1990s, meaning she has been in the game as the internet became more and more essential. Henson opened up about social media and the way people just hide behind screens:

[We don’t ever see] the disappointment, the letdown, the conversations you have with yourself. The imposter syndrome. The stuff going on in our heads. You know, nobody gets to see that. I’m trying to be on; you know what I mean? Listen, you would never know what I’m honestly [feeling]. Social media is where people post, and they live this fantasy realization. It’s not real. Nobody’s posting their pain. Nobody’s posting the days where they don’t give a fuck…That’s why you gotta take that social media with a grain of salt. Because we’re all addicted. It ain’t even about the kids anymore.
