Jamie Foxx Shares How His Daughter Corinne Saved Him

There's nothing like a daughter's love.

Celebrity News

Jamie Foxx and his daughter Corinne Foxx are one of Hollywood’s best father-daughter duos. They’ve teamed up together on several projects including Foxx’s game show Beat Shazam where they both serve as executive producers and often frequent red carpets together. Corinne even followed in her father’s footsteps by taking his professional last name and venturing into acting starring in 47 Meters Down: Uncaged and Live in Front of a Studio Audience: All in the Family and Good Times as Thelma.


And while the 28-year-old has indeed learned a lot from her Academy award-winning father, he recently gushed over what he has learned from her. The business partners sat down with Access to discuss the upcoming season of Beat Shazam. “What Corinne teaches me is to see the other side of things,” he said. “Don’t knee-jerk–a lot of times something goes wrong and I’ll just say it’s over. She’s like dad, talk it through.”

“I’ve learned from her on how to be patient. There were times when I was getting things wrong but naturally the way she is saved me.”

Jamie is also proud of Corinne and how she’s been able to successfully navigate Hollywood. “She goes to college, graduates USC, she’s been around this all of her life and so to watch her become–I remember live in front of the studio audience when she’s doing Good Times,” he said. “And I was so afraid because you know that’s live and it’s Viola Davis and she murdered that thing. It’s a testament to who she is and who she’s going to be.”

With the accomplishments she has already reached, it’s almost weird to think that Corinne was once considering using a different last name than her father. But according to her it almost happened.

In a Dec. 2021 interview with TOGETHXR, Corinne explained that she didn’t want people to think that she was riding on Jamie’s coattails and wanted to separate herself.

"I did consider, honestly, changing my last name," she said. "But as I've gotten older I've, one, made peace with people are gonna think things about me that I have no control of, and two, I'm proud of my dad and I'm proud of who he is and I'm proud of the work he's done. I'm proud of just the person that he is."

"Holding onto his name and being proud of my last name is actually something I've had to grow into," she added.

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
