Movie hunk Terrence Howard has justified his philandering ways on his longtime fear of sleeping alone. The actor admits he bedded many women in his late teens and early 20s because a series of nightly hauntings left him scarred as a child. The HUSTLE + FLOW star says, "I was afraid to sleep by myself up until I was 25 years old. "I used to get chased by little demons, I thought, when I was young. Stuff would just grab me or snatch me outta the bed. "It wasn't the imagination; we had ouija boards in the house, man... I would not sleep by myself." But Howard insists he didn't always want to have sex with the women he shared his bed with: "I'd be like, 'Let's just cuddle.'"
