‘Iron Man killed my career’, says Terrence Howard

LESSONS: Howard

AMERICAN ACTOR Terrence Howard declared that being in the Iron Man film franchise harmed his career.

The 43-year-old played Lieutenant Colonel James Rhodes in 2008 action move Iron Man, which was an adaptation of the Marvel comic book of the same name, but was replaced by Don Cheadle for Iron Man 2 because of an alleged breakdown in contract negotiations.

When a reporter from website Hollwood.com asked him what was the worst think he has witnessed, he jovially replied: “Worst thing I witnessed was Iron Man killing my career.”

He then further explained his comment when he told Spanish website Desde Hollywood: “I love the fact that Iron Man put me on a world stage and tested my strength of character.


“I chose not to fight back, not to deal with the allegations, but to continue forward and do what I had to do.”

The Crash actor continued: “I had to start all over: went from making $6 million (£4 million) a movie, back to $60,000 (£40,000) a movie. But as long as you don't give up you are able... I'll make $20 million soon. Because I have learned the lessons of yesterday.”
