Terrence Howard chose to retire permanently two years after taking a brief break. He verified this in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying,
“I asked Sidney Poitier if he wanted to do any more work 10 years ago, and he answered, ‘Why would I waste my final 10 years doing an imitation of myself?’ That’s where I’ve gotten.”
Terrence had been contemplating retirement from performing for some time, since after his role in Empire. He said that he could no longer pretend to be working, and actress Vivica A. Fox suggested that he take a year or more off to spend quality time with his family.
Terrence Howard has made a lot of money through his successful acting career
Terrence Howard has long been recognized for his faultless performances in cinema and television. He rose to prominence in the entertainment business in 2004 when he began playing key parts in the productions in which he was cast. The 53-year-old old’s worth is estimated to be approximately $5 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth. Since 1992, he has made a fortune in the entertainment sector. Although detailed information about his assets is presently unavailable, he leads a lavish lifestyle. The majority of Howard’s earnings have come from his role as Lucious Lyon in Fox’s musical drama series Empire. He is the show’s principal actor and the CEO of the record label Empire Entertainment. Lucious is diagnosed with ALS, and while he settles on a replacement, his sons begin bickering about succession.
Empire aired 102 episodes over six seasons from January 7, 2015, to April 21, 2020. Critics and spectators alike have praised all three seasons. The sixth season has been announced as the last one. Terrence Howard has acted in various films, and his box office earnings have contributed equally to his entire net worth. In the first MCU film, Iron Man, he played Colonel James Rhodes. Jon Favreau’s film made roughly $585 million at the movie office. For unclear reasons, he did not repeat his part in the MCU, and Don Cheadle was cast in his stead.

The album debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts in the United States.
