Terrance Howard and Taraji P. Henson For Entertainment Weekly

Empire cover

Did I ever tell you guys the story on how I know Terrance Howard? I think I wrote it on my blog a few years ago but he grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and went to the same high school as me. Thats right guys, he attended Shaw High School in East Cleveland, Ohio. He came out the same year as my big sister(82 0r 83) and I would see him in the hallways, I was a shy freshman back then and he was much older than me but I would always think he was really hot and he had those pretty green eyes! His brother Tyrone Howard and I graduated together in 1986 and later on, he became my electrician and would come by my house and fix things for me. Terrance’s brother Tyrone has those dreamy eyes too and just as handsome. I remember their dad would come up to the school and go awf if something wasn’t right! Everyone was scared of Terrance dad, he was a short but nice looking man but a hot head. They were raised Jehovah Witness too.

Now Terrance Howard is on the number one watched show, I’m sure his family is proud of him and now he’s covering Entertainment Weekly with it girl Taraji P. Henson! They look as though they would make a great couple but Taraji says they are just good friends. Check out what else she had to say in the interview inside!

Sidenote: Did you guys watch last nights episode? It was really good and I started to laugh when they had the white party, we will throw us a good white party right? I was living for Cookies high ponytail and when their son had his coming out event, Luscious was not happy about it!


Why Taraji suggested Terrance Howard for the role “I just knew it had to be him. When I read the script, I was like, ‘This is that deep love that you can’t explain, that you just see, and Terrence and I have that for each other.”

On why they never hooked up“We’re like father and daughter, mother and son, brother and sister. We’ve never been lovers. When I was doing Hustle & Flow, I was like, ‘I know I’m playing this character right if all my female co-leads want to sleep with me.’ Taraji was the only one that didn’t want to.”
