Terrence Howard has decided to retire from acting.

Howard revealed his decision to retire from acting during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet for the upcoming Peacock series The Best Man: The Final Chapters. While explaining his decision, the Chicago native recalled a conversation about retirement with legendary actor Sidney Poitier.

“This is the end of the road for me.” “I’m not sure if it’s the end for the rest of them,” he said of his Best Man co-stars. “I retired for the most part two years ago. I was finished. I asked Sidney Poitier if he wanted to do any more work 10 years ago, and he said, ‘Why would I spend my last 10 years doing an impersonation of myself?’ ‘And that’s where I’ve gotten.”

“I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve given everything I’ve got as an actor.” Now I’m enjoying seeing other new talent emerge, and I don’t want to impersonate myself.”

He went on to restate his admiration for the new generation of entertainers and even praised them for accomplishing feats he was unable to.

Yes, he acknowledged, “there are definitely better performers out there who can do things that I was never able do.” Therefore, I want to praise them and be enthusiastic about what they do.
