I live for the times when actors let their guards down – if only for a millisecond – and have a “This is 1,000% me.” moment. Often, such moments of candor are endearing. (Awww – he likes spaghetti noodles with hot sauce too?)
Sometimes they are just plain creepy. Terrence Howard speaks with great fervor when discussing the love scenes he did with Oprah while filming The Butler. I really wanted to be able to laugh but his lip-licking recount just made me wince. Hide ya wife, hide ya kids.
It might be that I put role-models in one camp and sex symbols in another. And can’t nobody talk dirty about role models. I have a a high regard for Oprah and put her on a pedestal, though I know better than to have such high expectations for a mere mortal. Still, my first reaction to his unpolished, irreverent praise was “You can’t say that about her.” No matter the intent, tig ol’ biddies and Oprah just do not belong in the same sentence.
Am I the only one? Do you think his comment was entertaining or did it bother you?
