Terrence Howard stars opposite Oprah Winfrey in the upcoming film The Butler.

And in an exclusive interview with Movie Fanatic, the actor gushes over the best part of working with this talk show goddess.

Her warm? Her generosity? Her spirit? Not exactly.

“Oprah and I had such chemistry,” Howard tells Movie Fanatic. “To be able to make out with Oprah and to have love scenes with her and those tig ol’ bitties… She’s such a voluptuous woman. That was wonderful.”

Wow. Well, okay then. Can’t say we saw that quote coming.


The Butler opens later this year and tells the tale of a butler who serves eight different U.S. Presidents.

It stars Howard (whose character has an affair with Winfrey’s character), John Cusack, Alan Rickman, Robin Williams, James Marsden, Forest Whitaker, Liev Schreiber, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jane Fonda, Melissa Leo, Vanessa Redgrave and Mariah Carey.

Not a bad cast. Almost as impressive as Oprah’s tig ol’ bitties. Yech. Sorry for that reminder.
