Don't ask Jamie Foxx about Katie Holmes on live TV
By Blake Schuster
So hereís a lesson to all broadcasters who land an interview with Jamie Foxx: Donít ask about his love life.
In fairness to ESPNís Michael Smith, it really was a lighthearted question.
With Foxx stopping by Smithís SportsCenter show before playing in the NBAís Celebrity Game during All-Star Weekend, Smith was joking around and brought the movie Love & Basketball while asking if Foxx and his girlfriend, Katie Holmes, ever go one-on-one.
Foxx, however, was not laughing.
The actor took a moment to listen to the first part of the question, but as soon as Smith brought up Holmes he immediately stood up, took his headset off and walked away, leaving Smith wondering what had just happened.
The best part here is clearly the brief second where Foxx considers responding to Smith, though you can tell it wasnít about to be anything polite.
Instead, Foxx did what weíve all been raised to do and decided if he didnít have anything nice to say he was just going to stand up and walk away from an interview on live TV.
The All Star Weekend in Los Angeles is off to magnificent start and itís only Friday.
