Turns out you don’t need a long rap sheet and a leopard-print wardrobe to be fierce like Cookie Lyon.

Taraji P. Henson, the lead actress in television show “Empire,” is renting her Hollywood Hills home for a fierce $12,000 month. 

Henson had originally listed her three-story home for sale at just under $3 million, but to no avail, the L.A. Times reported.

The Moorish-style residence was built in 2009. With four bedrooms and five bathrooms, the 4,200-square-foot property, located in the Beachwood Canyon area, also features a wine cellar, a built-in atrium and a media room. Outside, there is a lounge area, fire pit, two-car garage and hot tub.

There was a fifth bedroom, but it was converted into a dressing room and salon. Cookie would be proud.

Henson has appeared in films such as “Hustle and Flow” and “Date Night.” She was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
