Terrence Howard Covers GIANT

Click pic for larger image

Terrence Howard is covering the April/May '08 issue of GIANT magazine. And he drops knowledge on men who love men, why you shouldn't date starlets and how to raise a kid the old-fashioned way. All while rockin' a serious aviator get-up. Here's some excerpts: ON FINDING THE RIGHT WOMAN “… It’s so hard to find a good woman who’s gonna help build the family and not be so interested in just building herself. I could be like any other male wannabe celebrity out there and hang out and date a bunch of people. Of course, there’s a beautiful opportunity to be out there and free. Why not eat up all the fruit on the trees? But the end result is that those things bring a dishonor to the family, and I will have served nobody but myself. I’ve sacrificed what I want to do for the sake of my family, and that’s what I need.” More excerpts when you read the rest...

ON MALE ATTRACTION … Sometimes men are drawn to each other and don’t know how to deal with that. So they think, ‘I must be gay!’ But we hide from the quality that is most prolific in human beings, to express love. God is love. And we remain in his image. Only one other angel is made in his image, and he became Jesus on this earth, his only begotten son. So why is it that we run from love? Why can’t men look at each other in the eye with honesty?” ON RAISING HIS KIDS “My father believed in supervision. That’s why my kids are always with me. That’s why I don’t go out. It’s not ‘cause I don’t want to go out. But I don’t know any other creature in nature that leaves their kids with someone else. The bear don’t go to the owl and say, ‘Hey, can you watch my cub?’ No, they stay with their offspring until they’re in a position to do otherwise. I just believe in older values.” ON HIS ROLE IN IRONMAN “Jim Rhodes is one of the first black superheroes that was really given prominence. He even donned the Iron Man suit for a number of years when Iron Man couldn’t do it. Then he became his own individual, War Machine, who,” Howard adds with a sly grin, “was more powerful than Iron Man.” I so have a love/hate relationship with that Terrence. But the fact he's not still sporting that perm like it's the hottest thing that hit the streets...I'm A OK with dude right now. This issue hits stands April 8th.

He sounds like he is trying

He sounds like he is trying to come out of the closet. Men who are inside of it, usually beat their women, like Terrence did his wife. He is not supportive of his fellow black co-workers in the industry or supportive of black folks outside of the industry. I think he is a self-hating fairy. Instead of Young, Black and Fabulous, I'd say, Middle Aged, Black and Stupid!

Never get it twisted; it's the difference betwen eternal life in Heaven with the Lord and eternal death which is separation from God and eternal condemnation.[/quote] Okay first...I agree that Mr Howard shouldn't be percieved as Christian simply because he said something about God. That's just silly. But if you don't believe in the Trinity then you would say Jesus is indeed NOT God, which I don't think he is. I just figure it's important to bring out that your opinion on who God is doesn't nessecarily make it a fact. You get props for trying to preach your word though.

He def has book sense. Him

He def has book sense. Him and his wife were break up to make up...last time he said he found out her ex was in love with her so he said ok...y'all can be together...don't know what happened, but they tried working on their marriage again after...and who knows...that's all public knowledge. I like him...I have had a thing for him since he played Jackie in The Jackson Family movie thing for t.v.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THIS

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GUY THAT CREEPS ME OUT...WITH THOSE DAMN CAT EYES. HE SWEARS HE IS SO DEBONAIR AND THAT HE COULD HYPNOTIZE ANY WOMAN TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM. I remember when he came on Tyra, it was sooo bizarre, when he was singing "I Love You" while playing his guitar. Then he mentioned that he can't go to bed at night without holding a woman, it doesn't even matter what woman. So he goes out and find someone if he's not in a relationship to lay in bed with him (not necessarily sexually, but just physically). I wonder why his wife left him, I'm curious.

I don't know how to feel about him. When I see him on screen (usually) I am excited that a black man is so dedicated and competent at his craft. When he speaks I just hear arrogance. I'm conflicted.

@vicki: I hate to break it to

@vicki: I hate to break it to you but Mr. Howard DOES NOT have a degree in chemical engineering. He dropped out of school to pursue an acting career. And while I have no doubt that Terrence has a lot of book sense, he has proven time and again that his common sense is very limited. And I refuse to watch "Meet the Kardashians" like it was 20/20 to prove anything about anybody. Sorry.

Say it again, he's one of

Say it again, he's one of those actors who is always trying to spit some knowledge but doesn't actually have anything to spit; Drew Barrymore is my other favorite. No matter how smart she tries to sound, she will always betray the fact that she was drugged out for the bulk of her formulative learning years.

alot of people keep saying he

alot of people keep saying he is "trying" to sound intellectual the man has a chemical engineering degree and was approached by NASA to be a rocket scientist Literally, he has the mind of a rocket science if that is not intellectual, i don't know what is. Yall need to check out a lil more about Mr. Howard. i love his stance on things and the manner in which he communicates. He refuses to be ignorant. Yes he has been seen at events with other "female" friends and rumors got started, none of which were true. Don't you guys watch "Meet The kardashians" when that rumor was started about him and Kim and it was addressed on the show?

It really seems like the latter, which is an interesting and true point.[/quote] I with you 'J'. I wonder what he was really trying to convey. I got lost in the words. But I do beleive he was saying just because you have a brotherly love for a person doesn't mean your gay. Which can be true. Ladies love their girl friends which doesn't mean they are bedding them. It is just simply love for a individual. I feel ya Terrance but I do beleive you need to clarify your statement seeing that with the perm thingy you were looking rather sweet and I would have bet my check you were on the DL. Anyway, nice NEW look with the short fro. Love it. You even look more manly. Peace!

I'm tired of people who are not gay, trying to tell people why they are gay or what's the solution. I like Terrence. I just think he's trying to be a know it all there. That's just the male ego talking about anything and everything. But he is a great actor.

That surely didn't look like

That surely didn't look like him - i had to take a triple take but i don't ALWAYS see him with his kids??? Am i forgetting something??? Didn't he leave his wife? or wasn't he messing around on his wife & being pictured with other women? How is that preserving the family? Or am i mistaken?

Wooooord. I think it's sad

Wooooord. I think it's sad that brothers cannot fully enjoy the bond of friendship that woman can so easily access. We can literally lean on each other, hug, kiss and show warmth that would otherwise be considered 'gay' if expressed between two men. It's love. It's being loving. And we should be able to express it and give it to anyone. I don't like the idea that if I hug on a gay woman, it's interpreted as 'gay'...not loving...if a man is friends with a gay man, it's interpreted as 'gay' not being open-minded and free. If a gay man or woman is affectionate with their 'hetero' friends, then they are seen as greedy or sexually confused when all of this behaviour reflects love. I just wish we were'nt so afraid to love...love freely...myself included. But I feel Black Brothers especially are not allowed to express tenderness, fear, vulnerability without being labeled 'weak' so alot of them hide behind a role....never really expressing to sisters what's really going on inside. We say we want a man with tenderness and sensitivity but time and time again when he expresses this we shut him down or question his manhood...then we go and celebrate the one note sexually charged 'mandingo' image, the rappers and athletes who come off void of real emotion but are jam-packed with all the surface signs of manhood; aggression, buff bod, virility, groupies....all just perpetuating the same sterotype. Listen, I grew up in a house voice of motherly affection. When I got older and made friends who were affectionate towards me, it freaked me out simply because I was not used to being hugged by women. I thought...is she gay, hugging on me like that? Naaah. I was just unexposed to loving behaviour so when I experienced it, I didn't trust what it meant and why I liked it. It didn't turn me on but I liked being hugged by the people i loved. And I know brothers do too...but sadly can't express it like I can.
