Award winning actress Taraji P. Henson broke down in tears while receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday.
Henson talked about her beloved grandmother and how her grandmother's prayers and support inspired her throughout her career. Her grandmother was present at the ceremony to see her granddaughter honored.
“What I love about my grandmother is her unconditional love,” Henson shared with ET’s Courtney Tezeno after the ceremony. “She taught the family how to love, and she keeps us very close. All my cousins and I are really, really close. But of course, she prayed. She did a lot of praying and she continues to pray for me, and like I said in my speech, her prayers definitely brought me here. So, my grandmother’s my everything.”
