Kelly Ripa (Hayley, ALL MY CHILDREN) revealed on a recent episode of LIVE WITH KELLY her unexpected romantic connection with EMPIRE star Terrence Howard!
Her co-host for the show that day was Jussie Smollett, so she shared a secret that years ago, his EMPIRE co-star asked her out on a date!
“I screen-tested him for ALL MY CHILDREN, I’m gonna say 26 years ago,” she recalled. “And in the middle of the screen test, he asked me out on a date! To the point where I looked down at the script, I was like, ‘Did I forget my lines?’”
Smollett cracks up at the idea, realizing that Howard hasn’t changed at all over the years, then does a serviceable impression of what he thought it sounded like when the Academy Award-nominated actor asked out the AMC star!
