Let's catch up with Terrence Howard! In order to promote his new film Dead Man Down, the actor is making the rounds in the press circuit, and, well - he's saying a lot of bizarre things. Namely about how he wants to grow diamonds and how he voted for himself in the 2012 election. We're beginning to wonder if he's OK. Can someone check on him?

Here are a few of the weirdest things he's said so far. For one, he may retire:

"I'm thinking about running away! They keep pulling me back. I asked Sidney Poitier if he was going to act again. He said, If he's lucky he may have 10 years left in his life and he doesn't want to spend the next 10 years doing an impersonation of himself...I've played a lot of characters. Unless I can find something new and worth exploring, I don't really take too much to light in repeating some glory days."

He really loved his scenes with Oprah in his upcoming film, The Butler:

"Oprah and I had such chemistry. To be able to make out with Oprah and to have love scenes with her and those tig ol' bitties. I mean, she's such a lovely and voluptuous woman. She's very, very beautiful and that was wonderful."

Terrence, did you just refer to Oprah's breasts as "tig ol' bitties"? Real talk, are you OK?

On growing diamonds:

"I went to school for chemical engineering and applied materials. I'm working with a company called SCIO. We grow diamonds….Mined diamonds have a lot of irregularities. With a controlled setting we can have tighter bonds of the carbon. I have some patents related to diamonds. Some are related to harmonic fusion."

On how the producers of Iron Man were trying to end his career:

"(The) worst thing I witnessed was 'Iron Man' killing my career...or trying to. They tried to."

You can read more of his bizarre quotes over at Indiewire. This isn't the first time that Howard has said some weird things - during the press circuit for Red Tails, he made some strange comments about interracial relationships - but this is all a new level of bizarre. Seriously, can someone go check on him?
