Lyft riders in Los Angeles got the surprise of a lifetime when their Lyft driver turned out to be Taraji P. Henson.

In the latest installment of Undercover Lyft, Henson donned a hat and big stunna shades and altered her voice to disguise herself (as best she could). She pretended to be a physic and complained about her boyfriend to distract the riders from her true identity.

“Most physics, they use tarot cards, I use uno cards,” said Henson to one passenger.

She also dropped references to her character on the critically-acclaimed series Empire and the iconic film Hustle & Flow.

In the end, she surprised most of her riders and invited them all to the premiere of her new feature What Men Want. The film premieres February 8th. Make sure you go see it and watch the hilarious Lyft rides with Henson below:
