GQ Cover: Jamie Foxx Takes Over
NEW YORK, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- With three Golden Globe nominations and a swirl of Oscar buzz, Hollywood's next big thing, Jamie Foxx, appears on the cover of the February issue of GQ magazine (on sale January 25).
Foxx hits Los Angeles with contributor Lisa DePaulo for a series of candid conversations about commitment, family, the Oscars, and what he looks for in a woman.
And for the first time he goes on the record about the infamous stolen sex photos.
On commitment: "A commitment problem? Of course I do! I'm a man. Jesus Christ. Of course I got a commitment problem! Any man that tells you he doesn't have a commitment problem, he's lying. The way I see it, you stay uncommitted and you die an old, lonely m.f. Or you stay committed and you die a miserable m.f."
On what he looks for in a woman: "A woman's posterior is the key to my heart," he says, in his honey-dipped voice. "I know it sounds weird, but I come from Texas. And when I used to play hide-and-go-seek, the girl that I would find, she was a little more round. And I got a pulse from just finding that girl. And I thirst for that still. I like big-boned women. I like curves. I like to feel them. That's what drives me. That southern build. That's the realness."
On the stolen sex photos: "Somebody broke into the crawl space in my house in Vegas and found some pictures. Here's what you can tell everybody: There's no farm animals involved. There's no men involved. And to be honest with you? They're nice."
On whether he has written his Oscar acceptance speech yet: "I wrote it when I was 3."
On his relationship with his biological father: "It's like this," says Jamie. "He feels that if I'm not Muslim, then I can't be his son."
On being a parent to 11-year-old daughter (and Oscar date), Corinne: "People ask me, would I give up everything to have a relationship with my biological mother and father? And the answer is no. Because as a parent now, I understand that it's really on you. If you want to make your relationship with your kids something great, you can do it. But would I trade everything I have now for the relationship with my daughter? The answer is yes."
On keeping it real in Hollywood: "I'm not even worried," he says.
"Because I'm a southern gentleman. You don't know the creeeeed of the southern gentleman? A southern gentleman takes the good, bad, ugly, all of it, but he remains a gentleman. That's what I was taught; that's how I was brought up."
