Terry Crews remembers that the hard times brought him to success today

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Times are great for Terry Crews, with his TBS “Are We There Yet?” getting a 90-episode renewal – yes, that’s n-i-n-e-t-y as in 10 fewer than 100 – and his latest movie, Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables,” hitting at the box office and already prompting sequel talk.

But the nice guy NFL pro-turned-actor says he learned some of his most important life lessons during the harder times.

“I spent a year unemployed as an actor. I know what that feels like. You have to stick with it and believe, you have to concentrate on improving. I prayed a lot,” says Crews with a laugh. “I learned a lot playing in the NFL. You just keep going and you don’t stop. Keep going and keep playing and you’ll keep getting new opportunities. Take the smallest little opportunity and make something of it.

“I have to tell people also, sometimes you have to redirect,” he adds. “When something is not working out, sometimes you’ve got to get your mind off it. I decided to do other things for awhile, doing anything I could think of to keep that fire alive, until things started to break for me.”
