Make perceived harassing phone calls to Terrence Howard’s wife, and expect your life to be in jeopardy.

 

At least that’s what one stranger found out on August 31. After Howard’s wife inadvertently received several phone calls — prank calls actually meant for him — the Oscar-nominated actor left a voice message threatening to end the person’s life.

 

“Call my wife again, and I’m gonna come to your house,” Howard said, “and I’m gonna cut your f----- throat.”

 

However, the Hustle & Flow star quickly learned that he dialed the wrong number. Howard did a sudden about-face the following week, leaving the stranger another voice message apologizing for the threats. He also sent a text to the prank caller saying:

 

"I'm so sorry for calling you and speaking that way," Terrence said. "I thought you were somebody that's been harassing my wife. Please forgive me."

 

No word yet on the identity of the prank caller.
