Jamie Foxx Covers 'Men's Health UK' October 2013
Here’s what the 45-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On achieving success by taking tips from others: “One thing I’ve learnt is you have to rely on someone to tell you what’s hot and what’s not as you get older. That’s what I do: I ask. I’m still learning how to stay current – and at the same time not lose who I am, not be too young.”
On future proofing the next phase of his career: “Here’s what you’re going to unlearn now. You have to pull yourself away from the media – not be so shiny in the next 10 years, because it hurts the art and that’s the only thing that’s going to survive. That’s the tricky part: how do you navigate through the world and still be an artist?”
On adapting to his environments without losing his sense of self: “You just have to live. I did it in the ’hood for a long time, and then I did it uptown, where the audience is Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and all those guys. You still remain the same person, and you get your stamp. It’s like a passport.”
