Terrence Howard: 'Man breasts make me sensitive'

The Empire star has embraced his sagging pectorals.

Actor Terrence Howard left his newborn son disappointed after it became apparent he had no milk in his 'man breasts'.

The 47-year-old Empire star welcomed baby boy Hero with his wife Mira Pak this summer (16) and while recently cradling the infant against his chest, Howard reveals the tot mistook his sagging pectorals for an opportunity to suckle.

And in light of the failed breastfeeding attempt, Terrence started thinking about how his body has transformed since he hit his 40s.

During an appearance on late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday (30Aug16), the star quipped: “This is what I’m mad about our education system. They do not tell you when you get to be about 45, don’t worry about the boob thing, you’re going to grow your own."

"I was a boob man before I started growing my own," he added with a laugh.

Terrence has undergone complete physical transformations in the past to prepare for movie roles, but when it comes to addressing his man boobs, the actor admits he isn't interested in committing to a weight loss programme - in fact, Howard has actually grown fond of his protruding chest.

“I realised the larger your boobs get as a man the more sensitive you become," he noted.

Terrence has previously spoken about what he considers to be a curse on modern man, telling Rolling Stone magazine last year (15): "My daddy taught me, 'Never take the vertebrae out of your back or the bass out of your throat. I ain't raisin' sheep. I raised men. Stay a man.' But being a man comes with a curse because it's not a society made for men to flourish anymore. Everything is androgynous, you know? The more successful men now are the effeminate."
