During last month's 87th annual Academy Awards, which took place at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, Terrence Howard walked onto the stage to present the nominees for the Best Picture category, but his speech didn't really go to plan.

Howard recently addressed his Oscar blunder

The 45-year-old actor recently addressed his now infamous Oscar moment in a new interview on 'The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon' on Monday (March 2nd), in which he admitted he "choked".

"I was worried about you for a second," the talk show host, Fallon, said. "Can I just talk about the Oscars for a second?"

Looking embarrassed as Fallon probed him about the blunder, Howard initially said "no" but then decided to explain what went wrong.

"I'm at the Academy Awards," he recalled. "I mean, I got Meryl Streep, I got all these dope, the best actors in the world, and they're up there reading [from] the teleprompter. I was like, 'Man, I can memorize that!' So everybody that went up there, I'm clowning them. I'm clowning, I'm talking to my wife, 'Look at this, man, I can do better than that, wait until I go up there! Watch this, watch till I go up there!'"

When Howard was set to take to the stage, he began speaking in a very strange way and incredibly slow. Almost immediately, many social media users were speculating whether the 'Hustle & Flow' actor was on drugs or drunk.

"I walk out there and, um, first and foremost, I forgot to wear a belt that day," he continued. "So, I'm pulling it up, I'm like, 'It's okay, my stomach will hold it up.'"

"I get out there and I'm breathing and I got this memorized, I've worked 18 hours to work this out, I'm 'bout to kill it," he concluded. "I get out there... there's Oprah! 'Hi Oprah... Oh, oh, read the lines, read the lines.' I try to look up and I'm like, 'No, I worked on this, I'm not going to read the prompter, I'm going to say it from heart'... I choked!"
