Recently, actor Terrence Howard made headlines after making very blunt remarks about make-out scenes he filmed with Oprah Winfrey for Lee Daniels’ upcoming film The Butler.
“To be able to make out with Oprah…to have love scenes with her and those ‘tig ol’ bitties,’” Howard said with a giggle during an interview for his latest film, Dead Man Down. He told CocoaFab, “To watch Oprah loose the O and to see her as a woman, to kiss her, to contradict what she’s known for… To treat her like a desirable woman was the best thing,” says Terrence of making out with Oprah in a scene of the Lee Daniels-directed film.
Oprah recently sat down with Steve Harvey and opened up about the scene from The Butler which Howard recently made infamous.
“It was supposed to be like a little scene, and because Terrence Howard misbehaved it turned into a bigger scene, and then a bigger scene,” she revealed.
“He’s a misbehavin’ kinda boy,” Oprah continued. “He was on Twitter the other day talkin about my breastesses”
Harvey then confessed to Oprah that he spoke to Howard and gave him some unsolicited advice. “I told Terrence Howard, ‘you gonna mess your whole life up son. This ain’t who you want to play with. Do you a lil movie scene. Try to act like a professional about it, then go on bout ya business.’”
Oprah says although a lot of her friends told her they are offended by Howard’s comments, she is not upset.“Some people called me and said they were all offended by it, and I go, ‘well I do have big breastesses.’”
The Butler tells the story of Eugene Allen, who served eight different U.S. presidents from the 1950s through the 1980s. Oprah stars in the film alongside Forrest Whitaker, Lenny Kravitz, Cuba Gooding Jr., Robin Williams, Mariah Carey and several other A-list actors.
