Miss Henson is blazing hot and is the most underappreciated, underpaid, underused and underrated actress in Hollywood today plus the fact she is a great mom too!

Ms. Henson you are the top of the line. Almost seemingly untouchable,but if I ever get within arms distance I`d like to show you some love. You would laugh if I told you why I was into you long before you became an actress. If I was in the position I would be the man of your forte, the manifestation of your dreams,I would just be the one you need. No offense to the brothers, but Common and the others would just be common(serious chuckle). Well maybe I`m dreaming, but sometimes dreams come true. God Bless you in all your endeavors. Oh the Karate Kid was the bomb. A beautiful story.
