HUSTLE + FLOW star Terrence Howard has found dating in Hollywood rough after getting snubbed by a string of hot women. The Oscar nominee has recently been linked with supermodel Naomi Campbell, but insists he was only looking after her at the request of mutual friend Quincy Jones. And he admits he has been forced to swallow his pride many times when it comes to chatting up ladies in Los Angeles. He reveals, "I tried to talk to HALLE (BERRY) for a bit. Didn't call me back. "Tried to talk to Gabrielle Union. Didn't call me back, either." But Howard believes he hasn't been able to establish a new relationship because he still has feelings for his estranged wife LORI. He adds, "The only woman I really love is my wife. The hardest thing to do is to let go of somebody you really care about."
