Taraji P. Henson is learning to do her own nails while staying at home during the coronavirus crisis.
The Empire star is doing her best to keep herself busy during the lockdown period, and told U.S. TV show Extra via video chat app Zoom that she’s even lost five pounds (2.2 kilograms) since she started social distancing. In addition, Taraji has picked up a few new hobbies.
“I have aligned all of my chakras more than once, meditating a lot. I find myself praying, reflecting a lot, doing a lot of things I have said I wanted to do around the house that I don’t have time to do… Keeping busy, I learned how to do gel nails. I am a nail tech now,” she quipped.
Elsewhere in the interview, Taraji revealed she and fiance Kelvin Hayden have postponed their nuptials for the second time, due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Earlier this year, the actress moved her April wedding to June, after becoming concerned about the weather, but now that weddings have been cancelled all around the world due to the pandemic, Taraji conceded she and Kelvin will have to wait a little longer before they finally wed.
“It’s probably going to be more like July,” the 49-year-old explained. “We have to see what this will be like at the other end.”
Taraji added that both she and Kelvin have elderly relatives to take into consideration when thinking about when to reschedule their wedding for.
“Our grandparents, my grandmother is about to turn 96, his is 86, how do we get them to the wedding now? Now, we are concerned, just trying to figure out the safest and best way,” she noted.
