The well-built actor, who has a new movie out, also speaks candidly about his infidelity in an interview.
Some people are moved to tears when talking about their demons, but pec-popping extraordinaire Terry Crews – whose new movie Blended is released in the US this week – kept a smile on his face when opening up about his addiction to pornography, and even moved the audience to laughter.
"I was addicted to pornography since I was 12 years old," the football player-turned-actor told Wendy Williams during an interview on her show earlier this week. "My father was addicted to alcohol and my mother was addicted to religion. So what happens is you had an addictive household."
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, who is also the new host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and one of The Expendables, said he began looking at pornography in his uncle's basement before the advent of the Internet.
Crews writes about the struggle in his new memoir, Manhood. He believes the addiction, which he kept secret from his wife for years, eventually led to infidelity five years ago.
"The pornography addiction turns into something else," Crews said. "You can't have something like that in your life without it growing into something else. Everything grows."
Crews has been married to his wife, Rebecca, for 25 years. Their relationship survived the affair, and she sat in the audience to support him.
"Men get addicted to looking at pictures of you. That's how powerful a woman is," Crews said. "It's one of those things that took me away and it medicated me. But this is the problem. I never told anyone." — Reuters

Under The Dome – a TV series – is based on the celebrated author's novel of the same name.
Prolific suspense novelist Stephen King will make a cameo in the small screen adaptation of his 2009 novel Under The Dome, the second season of which premieres in the United States on June 30 on CBS.
In addition to penning the script for the season premiere, titled Heads Will Roll, King will make a brief appearance in front of the camera, announced the show's executive producer Neal Bear during a press conference.
The second season of Under The Dome reunited Bear, who was a screenwriter and producer on ER, with a few of his former colleagues. Sherry Stringfield, who played Susan Lewis on NBC's medical drama, has joined the cast in the role of Pauline, James Rennie's late wife. In addition, Eriq La Salle, who played Dr Benton on ER, took part in the season from behind the camera by directing the 10th episode.
Other new faces on the show include Eddie Cahill (CSI: NY) in the role of James Rennie's brother-in-law Sam Verdreaux, Karla Crome (Misfits) as the high school science teacher Rebecca Pine, and Brett Cullen (Lost) as Dale Barbara's father.
The TV adaptation of King's Under The Dome follows the population of Chester's Mills, a small Maine town that is cut off from the rest of the world when an invisible force field mysteriously surrounds it. The residents fight to survive as resources become scarce and power struggles ensue.
During its first season, which CBS aired from June to September 2013, Under The Dome was a smash hit, drawing an average 15 million viewers each week and becoming the most watched summer series in 21 years. The drama will also be up against NCIS and CSI at the Monte-Carlo Festival for the International TV Audience Award, which is given to the show with the highest worldwide audience figures. — AFP Relaxnews

The popular sitcom has the highest number of viewers in the United States.
The famous geeks of Pasadena have put an end to the four-year reign of Agent Gibbs and his investigation team (from NCIS, FYI). During the 2013-2014 season, for the first time in its history, The Big Bang Theory attracted more viewers than any other series in the US.
Between September 2013 and May 2014, no less than 19.96 million viewers followed the adventures of Sheldon, Leonard, Penny and their friends. Including catch-up TV services, the comedy's audience totaled 23.26 million fans. This means the show gained nearly two million additional fans in one year, a rare feat for a show that just wrapped up its seventh season.
While the popularity of The Big Bang Theory continues to rise, NCIS is showing the first signs of decline, although it is still in second place with an impressive 19.77 million viewers. Including catch-up, the crime drama attracted a total of 22.58 million individuals. But compared to the previous year, Agent Gibbs and his team lost 1.28 million fans.
The crime drama's California-based spin-off maintained its position in third place thanks to its 16.03 million fans. When including those who watched the show within the seven days after the first broadcast, NCIS: Los Angeles claimed a total of 17.82 million viewers, or half a million more than in the previous year.
With its 14.96 million fans, NBC's The Blacklist was the most watched new series last season. In fourth place overall, the crime drama proved to be more popular than Person Of Interest and Blue Bloods, two of CBS's other hit shows.
Another notable newcomer, ABC's Resurrection entered the ranking in seventh place with 12.96 million viewers, outperforming the long-running police series Criminal Minds and Castle.
With its 10th season, Grey's Anatomy returned to the top 10 thanks to 12.2 million viewers. On the other hand, Two And A Half Men, Elementary and Modern Family no longer have a spot amongst the 10 most watched shows in the US. — AFP Relaxnews
