Award-winning American actor Jamie Foxx revealed that he faced a significant medical emergency earlier this year, causing him immense hardship, but he has now recovered and resumed work.
In a heartfelt Instagram message posted recently, Foxx shared, “I went through something that I thought I would never ever go through.” However, he did not disclose the specific details of his health issue.
Back in April, while filming a Netflix movie in Georgia, the 55-year-old actor was rushed to a medical facility. The lack of information about his condition led to speculation about the severity of his health problem.
Refuting rumors and being visibly emotional, Foxx explained in the Instagram post that he deliberately kept a low profile during his recovery. He expressed, “I didn’t want you to see me with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through. I went to hell and back, and my road to recovery had some potholes as well.”
In a light-hearted moment, he playfully crossed his eyes and moved his arm to demonstrate that his eyesight and mobility were intact.
Foxx assured his fans that he is on the mend and ready to get back to work. His daughter Corinne confirmed in May that he had been out of the hospital for several weeks and even enjoyed playing pickleball.
Reflecting on his tough journey, Jamie Foxx expressed gratitude for overcoming the health ordeal. He said, “If you see me out from now on and every once in a while, I just burst into tears, it’s because it’s been tough, man. I was sick, man. But now I’ve got my legs under me, so you’re gonna see me out.”
As an accomplished actor, comedian, and Grammy-winning singer, Foxx’s talent has been recognized with numerous accolades, including an Academy Award for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the musical biopic “Ray” in 2005. He was also nominated for an Oscar for his role in “Collateral” the same year.
Recently, Foxx was filming “Back in Action,” where he stars alongside Cameron Diaz before his medical emergency took him by surprise. But now, with his health back on track, fans can look forward to seeing him back in action on the big screen.
