Lyft riders in Los Angeles recently had a not-so-typical commute when Taraji P. Hensonwas at the wheel.
The “Empire” star, 48, posed as a driver in the ride-sharing app’s latest installment of Undercover Lyft.
The actress donned a hat and sunglasses while she drove a few passengers around LA and slyly mentioned to one, “I want to see this movie that’s coming out, ‘What Men Want,’ because I really want to know,” dropping a reference to her new film. “Damnit, I want to know!”
She also snuck in a shout-out to her “Empire” character Cookie, by offering cookies to riders in the glove compartment, and tried to keep riders distracted by talking about their personal lives.
Lyft is close to Henson’s heart, as it supports her Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation. Named after the actress’ father, the foundation works to change the perception of and spread awareness about mental illness in African-Americans.
