Terrence Howard on Oprah's Kiss: "Softest Butterscotch"

The actor talks Lee Daniels' The Butler and more.

Published August 9, 2013


Audiences will get to see a completely different side of Oprah Winfrey in Lee Daniels' The Butler, Terrence Howard guarantees, but stops short of promising anything too scandalous. 

The actor, who plays Winfrey's lover in the historical epic, talks about just how far they decided to take their love scenes in the film. "In Oprah's case, less is always more," Howard tells us in our exclusive video. "The idea of wanting to know what's under the dress is more appealing than actually knowing." He argues that the lack of nudity actually makes the scenes more titilating for viewers. "I like the audience thinking about it, rather than it being right their for their instant gratification."

Howard, who caused a stir earlier this year when he described Winfrey's breasts in detail, has more thoughts to share on the media mogul's anatomy. He vividly describes her kiss as "the softest butterscotch."
