Taraji P. Henson is psyched for her gender-reversal reboot of "What Women Want"

Entertainment Interviews

Taraji P. Henson will play the lead character in "What Men Want" - the reboot of the Mel Gibson-starring comedy "What Women Want" - and spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about how she landed the project. She was especially pleased to take a break from dramas and sink her teeth into a comedy. "I'm happy to finally laugh in a role," she said. In this version, Henson's character suddenly can read men's minds after a freak accident. In the original film, Gibson was able to read women's minds.
