Exclusive: Terrence Howard Trying To Rebuild His Career After Iron Man



It looks like Terrence Howard’s career is finally on the upswing. The actor, who was once on a career high following Hustle & Flow and starring in Iron Man, is now just happy to be back in Hollywood’s good graces.

HipHollywood caught up with the Oscar nominated actor for his latest film Prisoners and chatted about his latest string of roles and how he’s rebuilding his career.

“There was a lot of downfall from ‘Iron Man’ years ago,” said Howard eluding to how deciding not to take a pay cut to return for the sequel nearly cost him his career. “You try and rebuild and rebuild and rebuild, but what I’ve learned from being on the outskirts of the business instead of being the center is that, I’ve learned how important it is to maintain the integrity of the work, and that they’re aren’t small roles just small actors.”

This year alone, Howard has starred in Dead Man Down, The Butler, Prisoners and will next be seen in Best Man Holiday. But for all the recent achievements, the actor still can’t avoid the controversy. Just last month his ex-wife came forward claiming Howard attacked her during their family vacation. Howard vehemently denied the claims, and told us his only recourse is to allow his work on screen to outshine the negative headlines.

“You can’t change in life,” explained. “But what you can do is transform, like you take a rose, it has a thousands thorns on it but the moment that the rose blossoms, you no longer see the thorns … that’s what you do. You transform by allowing the beauty to outshine the prickly things of life.”

    His career is over. He’ll likely kill a woman and/or himself sometime soon. He’s been convicted and/or suspected with beating at least 5 women. You need to do some more reporting. I will help you: He is a violent deranged lying sack of garbage and I predict he won’t be hired for anything serious again. Who wants this albatross around when there are so many more talented actors?

        Do you beat women and make ridiculous lies about it too? So he signed a permanent order and agreed to pay her. Still backing him?

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
