Terrence Howard

Tom Cruise Is Right

War & Movies Are Hell

EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard says Tom Cruise was dead-on -- making movies IS like fighting in combat.

Pretty amazing .... while Tom Cruise's people waged their own war to torpedo stories that Tom compared acting to fighting in Afghanistan ... Terrence embraced the analogy.

We broke the story about Tom's deposition transcript, in which he does compare the two.  As we reported, we have now seen Tom's deposition video -- at first he buys into the analogy in a macho sort of way, but then squarely dismisses it after seeing that the opposing lawyer had set a trap.

So check out why Terrence thinks Acting and Afghanistan have more in common than the A.

Depending on the movie, its an understandable sentiment. Directors do however many takes it takes to get a scene right and when actors are doing an action scene, its gotta be hell on the body. And if they have a director like how Kubrick was, doing stuff like 60-70 takes per scene just cause they're perfectionists, its gotta be miserable

These Hollywood weirdos think they have such tough jobs. I call bulls4*t on it. I'd rather have their jobs and make their money. You get to travel the world, meet interesting people, go to parties, and have the world gravel at your feet for some reason. Being a soldier is truely the harder job. I would never be able to handle it. You risk your life, don't make much money, don't really have anything fancy to wear, and death is at your door at any time. Hmmm. Which is really the harder job Mr. Howard & Mr. Cruise? Two untalented, overrated actors. One beats his wife and the other is a hidden gay man.

Anyone who's worked on set for film and says it's like war...... You've been in the BUBBLE Toooooo long and you need a REALITY check.
=
Worse thing about filming is, 'Hurry Up and... Wait'
For 'Above the Line' people.....
Get picked up and driven everywhere, every creature comfort possible is afforded, below the line works hours in the cold, wet & heat while above the line get called out 'only' when ready, scurried back to their trailers (Mini McMansions for some), and have portable heaters, coolers, people holding umbrella's on and on and on.

=
So these 'PRIMA DONNA' actors who complain about working 16 hour days (again, in their trailers or hotel room with all the comforts needed and more until picture time) are full of it.
They get to sit in comfort and nap, play around whatever until it's 'their' time.
-
I Luv the industry EXCEPT for the backstabbing, lies, phoniness, selfishness and with many....
Loss of REALITY.

Comparing making a movie to fighting in a war is completely insane. And a huge insult to our armed forces. Big difference between fake guns and bombs being fired at you to real ones. What an idiot.

These Hollywood clowns would wet their pants in real combat. Stop feeding their bank accounts, boycott their crash movies.

Unfortunately, we pay these d-bags (Cruise, Howard & the like) millions of dollars for pretending to be heroes, but pay the real heroes pittance.
