Love Chronicles: Terrence Howard Backs Off Dating
Our lives are made up of a series of lessons learned, both good and bad, throughout our lives. And some of the hardest lessons come to through our love lives. Terrence Howard is currently feeling the effects from his drama filled divorce from his ex-wife and has been put off to the whole idea of dating, according to Contact Music.
Howard, who settled the ugly divorce last year (12), was distraught over the allegations because he was constantly portrayed as the “bad guy” in the media – and the film roles he was being offered quickly reflected his reputation – although he didn’t mind that aspect of the fall out.
He explains, “Well, look at all the crap that’s gone on with me on the personal level. It fit my life. You know, I guess they (casting directors) see me as a bad guy. So it’s back to back.
“When you feel betrayed by someone that you trust the most… As an actor, you look for something that’s going to let you express your inner emotions and anger.”
But Howard has been left with several regrets about the way he handled his marriage breakdown, telling Gq magazine, “I should have never fought with her publicly. I should never have said anything bad about her, I don’t care what was the cause. You just love your family.”
And the actor confesses he’s been put off dating as a result of his embattled love life: “I don’t think I‘m going to date ever again! They (his exes) win, they win. I‘ve had a bad run.”
I’m sure with some time and perspective that’ll change. But for now, he’s not looking ladies!
