Actor clears up “tig ol’ bitties” comment about Oprah.
Seems Terrence Howard is rephrasing his thoughts on Oprah Winfrey. After a video of him discussing filming a love scene with the media mogul for the film The Butler went viral, the Oscar-nominated actor is choosing his words more carefully.
Last week, while promoting his latest film, Dead Man Down, Howard was asked about doing a sex scene with the media mogul. "Oprah and I had such chemistry,” he said. “To be able to make out with Oprah and to have love scenes with her and those tig ol' bitties ... She's such a lovely, voluptuous woman ... That was wonderful."
Obviously Howard rethought his choice of words in discussing the former talk show queen. When approached by TMZ and cajoled into further commenting, Howard referred to his co-star as a “beautiful woman” and that he was lucky to “touch a queen.” Oprah has not given any statements on the viral video or Howard's comments.
