Terrence Howard Gives a Play-By-Play of His Very Awkward Oscars 2015 Speech - Watch Now!

Terrence Howard makes an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (March 2) in New York City and chats about his very awkward moment on stage at the 2015 Oscars.

“I’m at the Academy Awards,” the 45-year-old actor explained. “I mean, I got Meryl Streep, I got all these dope, the best actors in the world, and they’re up there reading [from] the teleprompter. I was like, ‘Man, I can memorize that!’ So everybody that went up there, I’m clowning them. I’m clowning, I’m talking to my wife, ‘Look at this, man, I can do better than that, wait until I go up there! Watch this, watch till I go up there!’”

“I walk out there and, um, first and foremost, I forgot to wear a belt that day. So, I’m pulling it up, I’m like, ‘It’s okay, my stomach will hold it up,’” he continued.

“I get out there and I’m breathing and I got this memorized, I’ve worked 18 hours to work this out, I’m ’bout to kill it,” Terrence continued. “I get out there… there’s Oprah! ‘Hi Oprah… Oh, oh, read the lines, read the lines.’ I try to look up and I’m like, ‘No, I worked on this, I’m not going to read the prompter, I’m going to say it from heart’… I choked!”
