When it comes to acting, Terrence Howard, is one of the BADDEST mofo’s in the game. He has that unidentifiable “it” factor that only few actors have. As for his love life though, Terrence’s skills aren’t as immaculate…given his track record. But hey, the man ain’t a superhero, he’s only human, like the rest of us.

The former “Empire” star has even admitted that, “Before Mira, I always picked the wrong women.” And if you ask his now 3rd ex-wife-turned-fiancee’ (they divorced in 2015, and then engaged again a few years later), Miranda “Mira” Pak- true, he’s only human…yet a pretty odd human. However, she still loves her some him.

In a prior interview with Rolling Stone, Terrence and Miranda chopped it up about everything, including why she feels their marriage is kinda strange.

What Terrence Howard Has His Wife Do For Nearly 17 Hours A Day

The topic of their marriage arose, as Terrence was discussing his new self-made numbers system and ‘universal pieces’ he’s crafted (with help from Miranda) to prove his theory that 1×1 does NOT equal 1:

“This is the last century that our children will ever have been taught that one times one is one,” he says. … Twenty years from now, they’ll know that one times one equals two. … And the proof is in these pieces. I have created the pieces that make up the motion of the universe. We work on them about 17 hours a day. She (Miranda) cuts and puts on the crystals. I do the main work of soldering them together. They tell the truth from within.”

They Married After HOW MANY DAYS?!!

According to the publication, it was only after Terrence walked outta the room, that Miranda got really REAL about their union. First, she opened up about how they’d actually met and the bold move Terrence made, which ultimately ended with them at the altar in lightening speed:

She says she first met Howard in the middle of the day at an L.A. restaurant where she was having lunch with an old boss. He marched up to the table and said to the man, “I don’t know if she’s your wife or girlfriend, but she’s absolutely stunning.”

She said, “That’s very bold of you.” He said, “Well, only a tiger can approach a tiger.” Three weeks later, they were married.

Wife On How Their Marriage Isn’t “Normal”

Miranda then acknowledged just how abnormal their marriage is in her opinion:

“Isn’t that crazy?” she says today. “And we have an amazing connection. But, I mean, he’s not perfect. Doesn’t do the dishes. Doesn’t cook. Doesn’t lift a finger. I probably leave him 30 times a month.” She laughs and goes on, “He’s so selfish. But, you know, he didn’t have much of a childhood. It was difficult for him being picked on and bullied all the time. We don’t have a normal life. In our two years together, I’ve only gone to restaurants with him two or three times. We’ve never been to the supermarket together. We’ve never been to the movies. I’ve never gotten a gift from him. Never, never.”

“And then every minute that he has free, it’s to do this.” She gestures at some of Howard’s thingamajigs, tilting her head questioningly. “I help him, cutting, drawing and putting things together. I’ve developed a slight form of agoraphobia lately. I never go out. I have no friends here. I feel like Rapunzel, you know, stuck in a penthouse with my baby.”

Soon afterwards, Terrence Howard walked back into the room, after putting their then toddler son to sleep and jokingly asked the reporter, “You ask some good questions of my wife? She gonna get us in trouble?”

To which the reporter replied,”Ah, not too bad.”

“No, not too bad,” said T. Howard. “That’s like a doctor with a big-ass needle saying, ‘This ain’t gonna hurt.’”

Point is, at least the former head honcho of the “Lyons” family knows his marital bliss is a tad bit unorthodox, but he can keep a sense of humor about it at the same time.

What We Learned About Mr. & Mrs. Terrence Howard

We learned a few things about Terrence and his wife from that interview: (1) He has some quirky habits/interests; (2) his wife was and/or still is bored as hell on the regular; and (3) T. Howard definitely ain’t making it rain with his coins.

At the time of their interview, it seemed like Miranda was itching for a date night, a flashy pair of Louboutins, maybe a new Chanel bag…or some other sign of appreciation from Terrence, as she sees fit. Hopefully, they’ve since found a common ground on that.
