  • Terrence Howard turns 47 today and the actor has certainly faced many highs and lows in his whole life.

    As a child, Howard faced racism while his father was jailed for manslaughter charges. He also had to endure many failures and hardships before finally getting his big breaks on movies such as "Dead Presidents" and "Mr. Holland's Opus" in 1995.

    After getting his big break, Howard was launched into the mainstream as he got prominent roles on films like "Winnie," "Ray," "Four Brothers," "August Rush," and "The Brave One." His best moment probably came when he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in 2005 movie "Hustle & Flow."

    However, relationship and violence issues also marred the actor during his most successful stretch.

    Although Howard has face many ups and downs in his life and his career, it is still appropriate to give respect to the man who has given valuable contributions to the industry. To commemorate the now 47-year-old actor, here is a gallery of his best all-time photos.
