Being named after food gives people the OK to turn you into food fodder. In Taraji P. Henson‘s case, since her uber-popular character on Empire is named “Cookie,” fans have been filling up her cookie jar with the delicious treats – and she’s sick of it.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel asked the Emmy-nominated actress if people send her cookies due to her role. Henson replied with a PSA to all of her fans:
“All of my fellow Americans, please, don’t send me anymore cookies because I can’t eat them, or I won’t be able to fit Cookie’s clothing.”
But in case you were wondering which cookie is the actress’ fave, it’s “anything with chocolate.”
We promise we won’t send you any cookies, Taraji.
