Jamie Foxx Covers Upscale Magazine

Jamie Foxx covers the January 2013 issue of UPSCALE magazine. Foxx has been on the scene lately with his new movie Django Unchained due out in theaters Christmas day. Check out some highlights of his interview

On dating L.A. women:
“What’s the most romantic thing a woman has ever done for me? It’s hard out here in L.A., they don’t really do that shit. They be like n-gga you better be glad I’m here, the Lakers are having an after party. That’s the most romantic thing a woman has ever done for me. She took me to a Laker party.”

On staying humble:

“If you think about it, a lot of people that have won Oscars, you don’t get a chance to see them any more. And that’s because there’s not a lot of work out there, it’s not a lot of great projects, so you gotta be very careful and always stay humble. You can jump on out there and do your Oscar thing and you mess around and be trying to sell that Oscar, like, ‘Give me $1,200 for this…let me get $1,500.’ Like, ‘It’s gold, n-gga! It’s pure gold! Here, hold it!’”

On old black slave movies:
“Usually when black folks are the slaves… when it’s time to get them back as opposed to slapping them, we’ll put our hands down like, ‘Nah, I ain’t gonna be like you…’ And then we’ll start singing and the next thing you know we got an album coming out, as opposed to just join on and whipping his ass. Just whip a n-gga and get on about your business.”
