How Terrence Howard Lost 40 Pounds Because of Taraji P. Henson

Empire star Terrence Howard strutted onto the The View on Monday and explained that he recently lost 40 pounds because of Taraji P. Henson's gentle teasing. He said, "Taraji was making fun of me at work gaining weight. She was like, 'Do you really want to look like this the rest of your career?'"

Howard then went through the hard work of losing weight. He quickly explained his diet, "No carbs, no salt, no sugar."

He also worked out with a trainer and ran five miles every morning.

Even though he was inspired, in a way, by Henson to get in shape, Joy Behar reacted to his diet by exclaiming, "Just shoot me."
