TV Guide will feature the cast of CBS’s new series Person of Interest on the cover of their magazine, but has opted to not include the show’s leading lady, Taraji P. Henson. Upon hearing of the magazine’s snub, Henson took to her Facebook page to express her outrage in not being included among her other cast members.
“WOW!!!! TV Guide is NOT including me on the cover with my cast memebers [sic]……..I am the female lead of a 3 member cast and I’m not included on the cover!!!!!! Do you see the shit I have to deal with in this business…..I cram to understand!!!!”
The Academy Award nominated actress also made a Twitter post proclaiming her dismay with the entertainment magazine:
“WOW @ TVGuide!!!!! Being a member of 2 academys I honestly have no words!!!!!”
Henson stars on Person Of Interest as Detective Carter alongside Michael Emerson, Jim Caviezel, and Kevin Chapman in the J.J. Abrams produced crime drama.
Most recently Henson was spotted on Sunday as she took part in the 63rd Prime-time Emmy Awards. Henson was nominated for lead actress in a miniseries or a movie for her role in Lifetime original movie Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story, but Kate Winslet took home the award for her role in HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce.
TV Guide has not released a statement as to why Henson will not be with her cast members on the magazine’s cover.
