Acting out: Empire’s Terrence Howard jolts with retirement rant — must-see interview

“Empire” actor Terrence Howard has said some pretty wild things in the past.

He’s argued that “to the universe, there are no borders” in an interview on “The View” last year.

He also called his former co-star Jussie Smollett “honest” in the wake of the young actor claiming he was attacked by two MAGA-hat wearing goons who put a noose around his neck, despite the police and public discovering this was most definitely a hoax to get attention from fellow leftists.

Sure, Howard has said some head-scratching things in the past, but nothing amounts to his latest interview where he talked up his retirement from acting once “Empire” wraps its latest season — the show was axed by Fox, likely due to declining ratings following the Smollett “incident.”

Asked about his possible retirement from acting on the Emmy red carpet — where there were plenty of other bizarre statements made — Howard confirmed he is indeed walking away from his profession.

“Everyone keeps trying to tell me, ‘don’t say it’s forever,’ but I’ve spent 37 years pretending to be people so that people can pretend to watch and enjoy what I’m doing when I’ve made some discoveries in my own personal life with the science that Pythagoras was searching for,” Howard said.

“I was able to open up the flower of life properly and find the real wave conjugations,” the 50-year-old performer added, “that we’ve been looking for, for 10,000 years. Why would I continue walking on water for tips when I’ve got an entire generation to teach a whole new world?”

Asked what he will be doing beyond acting, Howard responded, “Let me put it this way, all energy in the universe is expressed in motion, all motion is expressed in waves, all waves are curves, so where does the straight lines come from to make the platonic solids? There are no straight lines. So when I took the flower of life and opened it properly, I found whole new wave conjugations that expose the in-between spaces.”

Try to make heads or tails of that word vomit. Charlie Sheen made more sense when he was screaming about tiger blood.

People were understandably a tad confused by Howard’s interview and made sure to say so on social media:

Besides his work on “Empire” since 2015, Howard is best known for his roles in films like “Crash” and “Hustle & Flow.” “Crash” earned the Best Picture Academy Award in 2006, and Howard was nominated for his performance in “Hustle & Flow” that same year. Howard also starred in “Iron Man,” the film that kicked off the highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he was let go and replaced in future films by Don Cheadle.
