Ale Posted July 25, 2012 Report Share Posted July 25, 2012 Nice words from Jamie..Q: How important is it to do a film like this at this point in your career? I'm the luckiest man in the world. When they were talking about Will Smith not doing it, I talked to Will and I was like, 'Thank you, (laughter) thank you for giving me this because you got it all!' Q: But you've got it on your own. Yeah but at the same time, it was the process. You never know with the movie process in Hollywood and this is something to be thankful for, because you drown in Hollywood in the box office or the fluff but when you get a chance to do real cinema, it never goes away. So, five, ten, twenty years from now, you will be able to turn this movie on and watch it. That's the one thing that I appreciate, and I appreciate the opportunity. Q: Why did Will Smith turn it down? I don't think that he turned it down, I just think that they were working on some different things. I think he was scheduled or something. But, he's a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, and like I said, sometimes things just work that way. And for me to have the dialogue with Will, and because of Will is the reason I have a career in movies, because when we were doing Ali, he told Michael Mann, “I've got to have that guy.” And Michael Mann was like, 'I don't know who that guy is,' he says, 'I've got to have that guy.' He stuck up for me. So this in a way is another way of him giving me an opportunity in a sense.http://ph.omg.yahoo.com/news/jamie-foxx-im-luckiest-man-world-003000734.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
