Is Prince Harry taking over the United States of America? What vehicle did Terrence Howard just lose in his divorce? All this, plus an exclusive clip from the new Mark Ruffalo and Jesse Eisenberg movie, Now You See Me. Read more…
Terrence Howard has always been a big ol’ weirdo. Remember when he told Elle that a woman using dry toilet paper was a dealbreaker (“If she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not clean.”)? And then there was the time he told Fighting co-star Channing Tatum that if he was ever jailed, he’d break out using acid from his, um, feces. Now, in a pervy overshare with Movie Fanatic, the Oscar nominee gushes about his love scenes with co-star Oprah Winfrey. Read more…
Just in time for Martin Luther King Day, we have for you an exclusive red band trailer of the movie specifically designed to offend people of all races, creeds and sexual orientation, Movie 43. In the most hilarious way, of course, because that was MLK Jr.’s dream, right? When the first trailer came out, we pointed out the things we couldn’t help but laugh at, even though we knew we really shouldn’t. This new trailer includes many of those again — Anna Faris‘ indecent proposal to Chris Pratt, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber bullying their home-schooled teen, Terrence Howard’s totally racist basketball coaching technique — and a couple of other jems, namely:
Kieran Culkin and Emma Stone debating which of the Golden Girls was “the slutty one.”
Elizabeth Banks pointing out to Josh Duhamel that their cartoon cat masturbates to pictures of him.
There are so many hilariously offensive lines and scenarios in the trailer for Movie 43, we’re having a hard time imagining how many more will fit into the full-length movie. It’s a veritable Scary Movie for the PC crowd. After watching it a couple of times, we’re a little more immune to the shock. Our innocent ears can now fully embrace the humor. Here, for your cataloging pleasure, is a list of all the terrible (amazing) things these stars do and say:
Anna Faris asks real-life husband Chris Pratt, “Will you poop on me?”
Emma Stone asks Kieran Culkin, “How’s your HPV?”
Halle Berry blows out a blind kid’s birthday candles on a dare.
Jennifer Hudson may not have won the third season of American Idol many moons ago, but she is definitely winning in her life as it stands now. J. Hud is one of the rare singers whose acting chops come closely equal to her powerful voice. When word spread about her role as Winnie Mandela in the biopic Winnie, we were excited to see what the Oscar winning singer could do with the role of the anti-apartheid historical figure. Alongside Terrence Howard who plays Nelson Mandela it looks like J. Hud may have nailed it. Read more…
There’s not much worse than celebrity domestic violence charges. A house fire, maybe? Seriously, if we could pay to have someone Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind away everything Mel Gibson did between 2009 and May 2011, we would. Oh, how we would! Meanwhile, Terrence Howard‘s wife Michelle Ghent has leveled some pretty heinous domestic violence allegations against the Iron Man actor, in addition to securing a restraining order against him. Some of Michelle’s claims include allegations that Howard hit her in the face, chipping her tooth with his wedding ring, and made threats against her life, including, “If you tell anyone about my personal business, I will kill you and no one will ever know.” Ugh, you can’t unread that sentence, can you?
Ghent filed for divorce back in February 2011 after the two wed in January 2010. Terrence also was arrested back in 2001 for an alleged assault on his then-wife Lori McCommas, whom the actor was married to from 1989 to 2001, than again from 2003 to 2005. Terrence has denied all allegations, and claims that Ghent said she would “release private materials to 3rd parties for her own personal financial gain” until the actor paid her. Hmm, is celebrity blackmail any better? Let’s consider the question while we treat ourselves to a nice glass of eye bleach.
News of Terrence Howard‘s divorce is coming a lot quicker than word of his nuptials did. The Hustle & Flow star married Michelle Ghent last January, but didn’t make their relationship public until May. Well, according to TMZ, Michelle has filed to wipe him from her life just a year after that secret ceremony. Yes, we just made the mandatory Terrence Howard baby wipes joke.
While the news is surprising considering the pair were just in Sundance together late last month, it’s hardly the first bit of matrimonial drama Terrence has been part of. The actor was arrested in 2001 for stalking, threatening and punching his first wife in the face during a separation in 2001 (they were divorced in 2003, and remarried in 2005 before separating again six months later). “The second time, she tried to control me,” Howard told The Guardian in 2008. “She made that awful mistake of trying to rope a bull. But I pursued her for six years and I’d marry her again, to tell you the truth.” Someone should warn her he’s free to try again.
Poor Skeet Ulrich. Already the butt of many a “failed movie career” joke, the actor will now have to deal with “failed TV career” jokes. Skeet just got fired from Law & Order LA, not even getting to finish the first season. And who will replace him as cueball Corey Stoll‘s partner in crime detection? Alfred Molina! No offense to Skeet, but that’s undoubtedly a step up the acting evolutionary scale.
But wait…isn’t Molina already on the cast as an Assistant District Attorney? Seems the plan is for Molina’s Ricardo Morales to reveal that he was a cop for 15 years…and apparently he’d like his old job back! This will allow fellow ADA Terrence Howard to appear in more episodes. The show’s legal side will also be losing Regina Hall and Megan Boone—whether this bloodletting will actually improve the show’s standing, we must admit we’re more inclined to see a show without Skeet Ulrich than a show with Skeet Ulrich.
Crazy news: Terrence Howard has been secretly married for the last five months. The Iron Man actor (replaced by Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2) introduced wife Michelle Ghent at a cocktail party in Cannes for Winnie, his upcoming Mandela biopic with Jennifer Hudson. “To come here and be with my wife, it’s the best feeling in the world,” Howard told Anderson Cooper. “Terrence is so in love with her and she’s a great, down-to-earth girl who really understands and loves him for him,” a source told Us.
What surprises us even more than the secret marriage is that someone lived up Terrence’s notorious standards for female partners. After all, Howard is anti-premarital sex (“Afterward, I would feel unclean…so I would have to let them go because they didn’t help me to be a stronger person”), pro baby-wipes (“If they’re using dry paper, they aren’t washing all of themselves…I go in a woman’s house and see the toilet paper there, I’ll explain this. And if she doesn’t make the adjustment to baby wipes, I’ll know she’s not completely clean”) and fond of dating multiple women at once (“The greatest number of women I’ve dated was 12. I’ve had four women come to my hotel and we all painted pictures together. I was just trying to see which ones I liked the most”). Still, it looks like one lucky lady has passed the audition.
