Jamie Foxx won’t date another famous person.
The actor, 47, – who has recently been romantically linked with Katie Holmes – has only ever been out with one Hollywood star and found her desire for the spotlight so off-putting, he never went out with her again.
He said: ”A few years ago, the minute I went, OK, let me try some of this Tinsel Town, it was literally 102 temperature, a big premiere I was supposed to go to, and she said, ‘What are we doing? I have my dress, there’s going to be camera crew following me and what I’ve accomplished.’ I was like, ‘If you want to go, go ahead and just don’t come back.’ ”
The Ray star – who has daughters Corrine, 21, and Annalise, five, from previous relationships – admitted his eldest daughter is desperate for him to settle down.
Speaking to Extra about the inspiration behind his new song ‘I’m Supposed to Be in Love by Now’, he said: ”My daughter was like, ‘Dad, when is it that time? When are you going to settle down?’ And so the song comes out, I’m supposed to be in love right now, looking at my life, and so it really resonates, and it’s from a piano which I haven’t really done on the other albums. this is a breath of fresh air.”
While Jamie won’t date another celebrity, he does think Jennifer Lopez is one of the most beautiful women he has ever met.
Recalling when they met on the TV show In Living Color in 1991, he said: ”I remember walking in on my first day at work, and I see this girl, she had on a suede brown dress, hair was curly and she was standing like a little deer and I said, ‘Hey, I got a girlfriend, I just want you to know that, but you are the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen.’ ”
