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.
