Some things should never be said. Jokes about anyone's mom, for instance. Cracks on terminal illness. Or, in relevant news, lascivious comments about the size of Oprah Winfrey's breasts.

But Terrence Howard did it, and although he did it jokingly, we're not sure if his offense is forgivable.

The actor was discussing his new movie, "The Butler," in which he stars alongside the talk show legend, in an interview with Movie Fanatic. Howard mentions that he has a love scene with Winfrey, and then goes on to wax poetic about why it was such a joy:

To be able to make out with Oprah, to have love scenes with her and those tig ol' bitties...I mean, um... [laughs] her...she's such a lovely, voluptuous woman, so being able to, she's very, very, very beautiful, and ah, that was wonderful...that was wonderful.
