Actor Terrence Howard has left fans confused about his departure from the Iron Man sequel after talking about the shock of hearing he had been replaced in one radio interview while explaining he quit the film in a magazine chat. Speaking to National Public Radio in America last year, the Hustle & Flow star revealed it was "the surprise of a lifetime" when he learned Don Cheadle would be replacing him in Iron Man 2.
He added, "There was no explanation... I read something in the trades implicating that it was about money or something, but apparently the contracts that we write and sign aren't worth the paper that they're printed on, sometimes.
"Promises aren't kept, and good faith negotiations aren't always held up."
But in a new Ebony magazine article, which hit the streets on Thursday, Howard suggests he walked away from the film after taking advice from his friend Will Smith.
Howard says, "I was simply on the wrong path with that movie."
Cheadle will take over the role of Jim Rhodes in the 2010 sequel.
