Jamie Foxx: I’ve starred in some stinkers
JAMIE FOXX has been hilariously candid about some of his less successful movie projects.
Speaking at last night’s BET (Black Entertainment Television) Awards in LA, the Ray actor was plugging his latest movie — but he couldn’t resist comparing it unfavourably to his previous film.
‘It’s crazy, it’s cool, and it ain’t a typical film. It brings a thrill ride, so everybody can experience it,’ he said of Baby Driver, before adding: ‘And it’s good too! It ain’t like that last joint I had.’
Jamie did not elaborate on which movie he was referring to, but his last project, Sleepless, was branded by one critic as ‘less sleepless, more insomnia cure’.
Foxx didn’t leave it there, though, adding: ‘You know it’s bad when they don’t ask you nothing about the movie like, “Man, that jacket you was wearing is tight.” Yeah, I know it sucked.’
Clearly on a roll, Jamie later told Entertainment Tonight: ‘It’s good to have a good one. You know, it’s hard when you’re out there promoting and you know it stinks. I’ve had a couple of them where I just know it stinks.’
Which begs the question, what’s the other one?
