Terrence Howard Is Still a Weirdo

Terrence “Baby Wipes” Howard’s interview with Rolling Stone confirms that, yep, he’s still a weirdo. Back in ’07 in an interview with Elle, Howard mentions how it’s a deal breaker if the woman he’s seeing used dry toilet paper instead of baby wipes.

In his talk with Rolling Stone, we see that isn’t the extent of his insanity. I’m not even sure where to begin. Guess I’ll just jump right in.

Terrence Howard has a lot of faces. 432 of them:

“Today, for me, has been about searching out who I am,” he says. “We’ve got all these different faces that want to come out — there’s at least four just in this moment, with a possible expansion to 432 — but which one do you let out? Is it the person who’s cool that you’ve mastered? Is it the excited little boy?”

One times one doesn’t equal one according to Terrence Howard:

After high school, he attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, studying chemical engineering, until he got into an argument with a professor about what one times one equals. “How can it equal one?” he said. “If one times one equals one that means that two is of no value because one times itself has no effect. One times one equals two because the square root of four is two, so what’s the square root of two? Should be one, but we’re told it’s two, and that cannot be.” This did not go over well, he says, and he soon left school. “I mean, you can’t conform when you know innately that something is wrong.”

Terrence Howard lives off his wife:

“You know, all my checks from Fox are being held for garnishment, because of my ex. I’m broke as can be. But my wife, she did well for herself, so she’s covered us. This place, she’s renting it. I’m suffering. There’s nothing worse than being a broke movie star.”

…who filed for divorce months ago:

Back in July, actually. Even weirder, the two acted like a happy couple during the interview.

Terrence Howard learned a lot from his father:

One man, who had three of his kids with him, accused Tyrone of cutting in front of them with his own three kids, including two-year-old Terrence, and his pregnant wife, Anita. It boiled over into violence, and somehow, Tyrone got hold of a nail file, stabbed the guy until he fell, then fled the scene. The crime made national news and became known as the “Santa Line Slaying.”

“I was standing next to my father, watching,” Howard says. “Then stuff happened so quickly — blood was on the coats, on our jackets — and then my dad’s on a table and then my dad is gone to prison.”

Leaning into the softness of the sofa, he continues, “My daddy taught me, ‘Never take the vertebrae out of your back or the bass out of your throat. I ain’t raisin’ sheep. I raised men. Stay a man.’

These aren’t even the half of it. This dude is crazy. If he wasn’t a movie star, he’d be sitting on a street corner yelling at everyone about mathematical theory and baby wipes.
