“I’m done with acting,” he told “Extra.” “I’m done pretending.”
Howard, 50, did not share why he decided to quit and did not elaborate on what career he plans to pursue instead.
However, he shared that his future plans are “not philanthropy,” adding, “I’m just focusing on bringing the truth to the world.”
In August, Howard posted a photo of a mathematics equation on Instagram that posed the question, “Does one dollar bill times one dollar bill equal one dollar or two dollars?”
“Dear Friends, I believe that enough time has passed with Mankind behaving as if we are living in the dark ages!” he captioned the post. “At last, ‘the proof and the pudding’ is ready to be served! Go to Tcotlc.com and download the Truth concerning Man’s flawed approach to math and let me show you, How our Universe truly Works!”
On Tcotlc.com, a banner reads, “This is the Truth — This is the Light — This is the Wave.”
Howard has acted in dozens of films since 1995, and earned an Academy Award nomination for his role in “Hustle & Flow.”
