Actor Terrence Howard was surprisingly candid during his interview on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen.

When asked about his infamous lap dance with Beyonce during the 2005 BET Awards, Howard revealed some juicy details about a prior encounter.  The Best Man Holiday actor told Cohen that he and Beyonce had a connection when they first met.

But Howard claims a relationship never kicked off because he tried to hook up with one of her friends. He believed the lap dance during Destiny’s Child performance of Cater 2 U was payback for not hooking up with her.

Howard also revealed the real reason why Don Cheadle replaced him in the Iron Man films.

“This is gonna get me in a lot of trouble, but who gives a f*ck,” Howard said. “It turns out that the person that I helped become ‘Iron Man,’ when it was time to re-up for the second one, took the money that was supposed to go to me and pushed me out.”

Howard was referring to Robert Downey, Jr. He said Downey, Jr. didn’t return his calls for three months. He claims he had a three picture deal, but the studio broke his contract when Downey, Jr. wanted more money.

Howard claims Iron Man killed his career. He told Hollywood.com, “I had to star all over: went from making $6 million a movie, back to $60 thousand a movie … I’ll make $20 million soon. Because I have learned the lessons of yesterday.”
