No one would really know that because I don’t blast my personal business, but I’m very happy.” Henson is 47 and Hayden is 33, friends are quietly hoping that the relationship remains solid, but have voiced concern.

Henson also said, “I don’t really put a lot on what I do, because you know people love you when you’re in the limelight. But what happens when the lights go off? So, those people care about me no matter what, and those are the people that I keep close to me. So, I never buy into the hype. They love you when you’re hot and they love you when you’re not, you know? So I never buy into that fake love. I got so much real love around me, that I’m not confused.” Henson worked for a short time at the Pentagon before pursuing an acting career. In 2016 ‘Time Magazine’ declared she was among 100 most influential people in the world.
