Toss one out (a poop-stained baby wipe) for Terrence Howard. The sixth and final season of Empire just wrapped (thanks Jussie. No seriously, THANK YOU), and Terrence told Extra that he’s decided to retire from acting. Now, before you start planning that celebratory jubilee, know that the reason he’s retiring is so that he can focus on “bringing truth to the world.” Considering that his previous truths have been that taxes are for suckers, and that Whoop That Trick from Hustle & Flow is an instruction manual, I’m dreading what’s to come.
Remember when Terrence created his own language called “Terryology” which he uses to discredit things like math, and had his wife gluing crystals to used toilet paper tubes (aka Satan’s worm castings – Terryology 3:16) or whatever? I’m just saying, don’t be surprised when Terrence’s next act is a SoundCloud rap collaboration with Grimes and Elon Musk.
Terrence broke the news that he isn’t just going to be done with “Empire” when the show is over — he’s going to be done with acting! Cheslie [Extra correspondent] asked, “What do you think will happen with your career? What do you see yourself doing going forward?” Terrence responded, “Oh, I’m done with acting. I’m done pretending.”
Cheslie followed up, asking, “You’re finishing up, you’re no longer acting, and you’re focusing solely on philanthropy and other interests?” Terrence replied, “No, not philanthropy; I’m just focusing on bringing truth to the world.”
Philanthropy!?! Oh Cheslie, you sweet summer child. The only things Terrence gives away for free are baby wipes and truths. And apparently, he’s all out of baby wipes.
