Terrence Howard: Insane

Did you read this
Elle interview with Terrence Howard!?!

Just in case you'd rather not spend your relatively sane luncheon break with a wingnut, I'll give you highlights:

ELLE: What one item could you find in a woman's house that would prove that you weren't compatible?

TH: Toilet paper—and no baby wipes—in her bathroom. (editor's note: huh?)

ELLE: Wait. I don't think I understand.

TH: If they're using dry paper, they aren't washing all of themselves. It's just unclean. So if I go inside 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. (editor's note: WTF?!?)

Hey Terrence! You CrAzY into cleanliness!!!


ELLE: You were married very young, got divorced, and then spent years trying to get your ex back, got together again a few years ago, but are now apart. What happened?

TH: I realized why she divorced me in the first place. I was in love with her, but she was not in love with me. I can't be upset because she doesn't find me the most beautiful thing on the planet. But I don't look much like her, so I understand that.

editor's note: That makes sense, Terrence. She didn't leave you cuz you're bat-shit CrAzY. She left cuz you don't look like her.

To shed some additional light on the subject, I offer you some unsubstantiated crap from the interwebs:

-"Press reports have since noted that Howard is "trying to reunite" with his wife, and that he has stated that he is "chasing after" her." (wikipedia)

-When NY Mag interviewed Terrence, they couldn't resist asking about baby wipes in the bathroom. Terrence offered more insight: "You know, my views and focus never change. They remain the same, about trying to find a cleaner way to live, and to be safer, you know? And maybe we should be a little more careful about social mores instead of this loose living that everybody’s gotten caught up in. We’ve lost our moral values a little bit. That’s what I was touching on.That’s what I was touching on. I believe as an artist, my nature is to speak. Do I think we need to readdress how we clean ourselves? Yeah. It took a long time for soap to catch on. Now everyone uses soap. So let’s be a little more clean, you guys. Let’s not be germophobic, but let’s be clean when we can." (editor's note: Thank you Terrence. I now understand. Baby wipes will cure loose living. BTW, I was completely in the dark about soap "catching on". )

Holy crap! He's nuts! That is awesome and funny. Though I do like a girl that uses baby wipes...but not because it cures the worlds looseness.

"I like women who look like me. Generally, you're ­attracted to women who look like you, because the most beautiful thing in nature is your own reflection."

Ah, I just got where the "unclean" thing came from (loose morals).

This all comes off as a tool to try and win back this same girl. Sounds like a cheated and now he's trying to show he's changed by proxy. That, or he gave his ex wife syphalis which seems plausible considering his insanity.

I dated a man like him once. Not for very long because he also felt "unclean" after rolling in the hay and immediately ran to the shower!! The final straw? He would brush his teeth after um...I don't want to put this in the comments if you don't want it so...use your imagination. I felt like I was the dirtiest girl in the world for one hot minute, then I realized that he was a nutjob and I dumped his ass.
