You have to love a woman that can laugh an awkward situation off. Terrence Howard, an actor known for putting his foot in his mouth, had a lot to say about his love scenes with Oprah in their upcoming Lee Daniels-directed film The Butler. He told Movie Fanatic:

“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.”

While many of Oprah’s fans were outraged to see her objectified and as they tell it, disrespected in that way, the OWN Network CEO seemed to take it all in stride.

In an interview with Steve Harvey, she said:

“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.”

And when Harvey suggested it was inappropriate, Oprah maintained she was not offended in the least:

“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 (shrug).”

Oprah knows better than to take those comments to heart, and we’re pretty sure Stedman’s somewhere shrugging them off, too.

    I think that the comment was inappropriate. He should not have commented on her breasts.
    Oprah is older than him and he should have shown more respect than to objectify her in that manner. Terrence is an idiot. It is no wonder that he his white wives quickly dump his ass. As far as I am concerned, he should be overlooked for future black roles due to his insensitivity.

    It’s not about her supporting her people (we all know Oprah does alot to support blacks not only here but globally) by going on a black talk show vs. a white one. It’s about her going on a talk show hosted by a man who is snake in the grass.

      My guess is that Terrence Howard was talking about Halle Berry’s breasts in a love scene, no one would freak out although Halle is older than Howard. I think him sexualizing a woman who is usually seen as an asexual almost “Mammy” sort of figure has upset folks perceptions.
