Terrence Howard — What I Meant to Say About Oprah Was …

Exclusive 030813_terrance_howard_launch_v2Terrence Howard must have been on the receiving end of a stern lecture … because after his salacious comments about Oprah Winfrey went viral this week, he was waaaaaaay more respectful the second time around.

In case you missed it … Howard described his love scenes in a movie he recently shot with her by saying, “Oprah and I had such chemistry. To be able to make out with Oprah and to have love scenes with her and those tig ol” bitties … She”s such a lovely, voluptuous woman … That was wonderful.”

But when he bumped into our photog Friday on the snowy streets of NYC … Howard chose a reverent tone, telling us Oprah is a “beautiful woman” and he was lucky  “to touch the Queen.”

Sounds like someone was afraid of getting beheaded.
