Lee Daniels' upcoming historical drama The Butler was bound to be weird given Daniels' guiding hand (have you seen his The Paperboy, and did you like when Nicole Kidman peed on Zac Efron?), the casting (Robin Williams is Eisenhower, John Cusack is Nixon, Nancy Regan is Jane Fonda, oops I mean Jane Fonda is Nancy Regan) and Mariah Carey's turban. Now, count on it to be weird and creepy because Terence Howard recently started frothing at the mouth to Next Movie about playing the love interest of Oprah Winfrey's character, Gloria Gaines:
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. I mean, she's such a lovely and voluptuous woman. She's very, very beautiful and that was wonderful.
He was erect, why aren't you erect? Perhaps you will be when you watch The Butler, and won't that be something?
"Tig ol' bitties," for those who haven't figured it out, is a polite way of saying "big ol' titties," and mentioning them is a rude way of praising someone that you worked with. The phrase, as heard from Da Brat in the remix of Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" (among places), manages to be both euphemistic and more emphatic than what it's standing in for. It's kind of like "pooh," which evokes way too much in the ease with which it slides off the tongue than say, "shit."
Cool guy, that Terrence Howard.
