Oprah Winfrey and Terrence Howard will be playing opposite each other in the upcoming film “The Butler”. In the film the two share a very steamy love scene, and Howard did not mince words when speaking about the experience of filming the scene.

“To be able to make out with Oprah, to have love scenes with her and those tig ol’ bitties — she’s such a lovely and voluptuous woman. … She’s very, very, very beautiful, and that was wonderful,” said Howard about Oprah. Oprah also shared her feelings about the experience recently during an interview with Steve Harvey. “It was supposed to be a little scene, and because Terrence Howard misbehaved, it turned into a bigger scene and then a bigger scene. Oh, he’s a misbehaving kind of boy. I saw him on Twitter the other day talking about my breasteses.”

This is so interesting to hear two very professional actors speaking so candidly about enjoying a love scene with each other. Also, in case you couldn’t tell from her playful comments on the subject, Oprah doesn’t mind that Howard spoke about her body the way he did and wasn’t outraged even half as much as her fan base. “I wasn’t…you know what, some people called me saying they were all offended by it. I go, ‘Well, I do have big breasteses,” she told Steve Harvey.

The steamy photo was initially released by the media mogul herself via Twitter. “And THAT’s a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in our goodbye’love scene’. Thanks Lee Daniels for the great experience. #theButler,” Oprah tweeted. When Howard was recently questioned by paparazzi about Oprah’s “tig ol’ bitties,” the actor used more appropriate words and phrases to describe Oprah. Howard said she is a ”beautiful woman” and he was lucky  “to touch the Queen.“ He may not care very much about landing another acting gig with Oprah because he hinted to exploring additional career opportunities. And also revealed that he was slammed by black media and its “crab in a barrel mentality” when he decided to marry an Asian woman.

 What are your feelings about Howard’s comments?

    I do hope that this is a good movie by Lee Daniels. He has a history of directing and/or producing interesting movies that portray people of color in a very negative light. Monsters Ball, Precious and Shadow Boxer. Think about it!!!

    This is not good news.

    TODAY ON MSNBC THE NEWS THAT IS MORE INTERESTING IS THAT THE IRAQ WAR WAS A WAR THAT WAS AN UNNECESSARY WAR.

    WE ALL NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THIS BECAUSE ALL OF THE PEOPLE AMERICANS & IRAQ’S THAT WERE KILLED BEHIND A WAR THAT WAS NOT NECESSARY AND NOONE IS BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

    FORMER VP DICK CHENEY MADE MONEY FROM THIS WAR WITH HIS COMPANY NOT CARING ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO LOST LOVED ONES AND THEN CAUSING THIS OUR COUNTRY TO HAVE A FINANCIAL CRISIS.

    DO A STORY ON THIS WAR AND HAVE THE PEOPLE THAT RESPOND TO THINK ABOUT THEIR RESPONSES WITHOUT BEING PERSONAL. IT IS SO IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE A VOICE, TO BE HEARD.

      no offense, but everyone, even those of us who are uninformed on most topics knew about how and why the war was waged. It’s been 10 years!

      Try to stay on point! (Oprah/Terrence)

    Terrence Howard’s comment about Oprah’s large breasts was him being himself and probably commented as he did without thinking first; I do not believe Terrence Howard made the “tig ol bitties” comment to deliberately hurt or insult Oprah. And, Oprah openly stated that she took no offense to Howard’s breast comment, in fact, Oprah admitted that she does have large breasts. As for Oprah’s comment about Terrence Howard, I do believe her comment was insulting: (1) Terrence Howard is well over 21 yrs. of age, which makes him an adult. (2) Oprah’s comment: “Oh he’s a misbehaving kind of BOY” IS indeed insulting; Terrence Howard SHOILD be given respect just as she would expect others to do for her. I doubt Oprah would enjoy another calling her a “girl” ….

      Insulting to who? You?

      Are we allowed freedom of speech anymore? Are we allowed to print or say the word breasts? Wake up and smell something. Terrance Howard is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. He said what he felt even though under cover. He did not say big ol titties even though that is what he meant. And Oprah was not demeaning Howard when she said that he was a misbehaving kind of boy. He is misbehaving in most of his movies and looks all so good and manly in all of them. Nothing about him suggests that he should be called a boy, and if he is, if in the same context used by Oprah, he should find no offense to the use of the word boy. No one has been insulted here and both Oprah and Terrence should be commended for enjoying each other, words and all.

      Naomi, Sounds like you were the only one insulted. Oprah did not insult T.H. Are you over the age of 21?? You should grow up. Understanding when someone is being playful with another is not that hard.

      She felt boy was an appropriate reference —because it kept her in a mode of being “UNCONCERNED.”

    “no offense, but everyone, even those of us who are uninformed on most topics knew about how and why the war was waged. It’s been 10 years!”

    NO Onesilverbac, YOU DO NOT personally know “how and why the Iraq war as waged”. Nor are you and most mentally challenged Negroes awared of the 1-trillion dollar cost of the Iraqi War’s the direct and indirect impact on Black America’s real unemployment rate of 20% and the lost of 30 years of Black Wealth.

    Oprah and Terrence are a lot closer to the Massa’s Big House of Money than 99% of the Poor Black folks posting comments about this nonsense. Yes and its been 400 years… not 10-years and little has change for Negro America. IF Oprah and Terrence were white, whatever they got paid for making the “Tig Ol Bitties” movie, it is far less than their white counterparts would have received. And more importantly, if the movie actualizes any degree of success, the White Movie Mogals will make out like bandits while the rest of Negroville remains affixated on “Tig Ol Bitties” talk.

      You are living in a “very dark place” if you believe that Black folks have not come a long way from slavery. We have actors/actresses who are recognized as better than others where they were unable to tread at one time in life. Black people are getting educated, own their own homes, own their own businesses, are able to live freely in this society – IF THEY CHOSE. If you want to sit back and do nothing to improve your life, and have pity parties, you will not live the life that you see your counterparts having and enjoying.

    Sisters, learn to accept compliments again. I also thought it was unprofessional, but after listening to what Oprah said, I agree with her. We have large breasts and hips and if a man notices and compliments, acknowledge him, say thanks and move on…it’s a man thing anyway, He was not “nasty” in what he said.

    Let white folks and negroes worry about it if they are so concerned. This is a nothing issue for us Africans we have more important things to talk about like how to overcome “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome.”

    How in the world did we get from Oprah’s tig ‘ol biddies to the war in Iraq???

    Oprah isn’t upset. Her response was simply playful bantering. (“bad boy”)

    Everyone is so sensitive. Lighten up.

    Geeeezzz

    They are adults and if Oprah wasn’t upset whose business is it to tell her how she should feel? Most of her fan base is WHITE, so I would be curious if White feminists took issue with the comraderie between Oprah and Terrence, and whether they are the bulk of the complaints against Oprah and Terrence. White Americans have always been uncomfortable with Black sexuality. After all, they feel it their right to tell us what to do with our bodies and still view Black males as uncivilized sexual savages! Its ridiculous! When Brad and Angelina were getting their groove thing on during that Mr. and Mrs. Smith movie, and where the two fell in love with each other during all that hot adulterous sex; Whites cooed, “How romantic!”
    As for Oprah, she does have a predilection for light complexion “pretty men” so she was probably flattered by Terrence Howard being smitten by her, especially with her being the older woman.
    Its yo thang Oprah do what ya wanna do!lol

    I knew she would be flattered. She is Oprah but she is a woman with many insecurities. Remember in the middle 90’s she was in tears over her weight fluctuations so to have a seasoned actor fawn over her is a boost to her ego no doubt. That Terrance got an Asian is more a of big deal that you think because I do not see them mix a lot with brothers even on the college campuses. There really is no “Black” male that fits the ideal we want him to fit into. It was a dream that will never happen. Because we were all forced to assimilate into the white world and thereby lost the essence of who we were. And those who did not are on the Reservations suffering unduly.
