Terrence Howard Blames Oprah For His Oscars Flub
The Empire star addressed the blunder in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and said that the trouble came down to two things; overconfidence and improper attire as he forgot to wear the belt that day.
Already off his game when Howard took the stage, the cockiness took over. Unlike all the other celebrities who were reading off the teleprompter, he wanted to show them all up by memorizing his script.
Fallon then had Howard sit through the painfully awkward moment, giving a running dialogue of what he was thinking as he spoke.
