As one of the most famous names in Hollywood, comedy and music for almost 30 years, Jamie Foxx has seen it all, to quote Jeezy and JAY-Z.
During a recent appearance on the inaugural episode of Tank and J Valentine’s The R&B Money Podcast, the 54-year-old multi-hyphenate shared another hilarious story involving a coked-up “very prominent actress” who mistook him for a former NBA player during a night on the town in Los Angeles.
“I ain’t saying no names, but I was in a hotel room with a very prominent actress and she was doing cocaine,” he said as Tank began cracking up. “I wasn’t! I wouldn’t do that because of my religious beliefs, but she does the cocaine. She goes, ‘Wow! I didn’t think I would be in this room doing cocaine with Rick Fox!’ She thought I was Rick Fox the whole fucking night, bro! I was like, ‘I’m not light-skinned with good hair like this n-gga!’”
He continued, “I hung out with this young lady all night, bro. I met her at 7:30, she’s already high as fuck … I’m pulling up in my limo, she jumps in my limo thinking it’s somebody else’s. She’s like, ‘Oh my fucking God. What am I doing?’ I said, ‘I don’t know!’ We rolled up and down Sunset Boulevard and then when we get back to her place, ‘I cannot fucking believe I’m with Rick Fox.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I can’t either.’”
Rick Fox played 13 seasons in the NBA between 1991 and 2004, splitting his time between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers. The 6’7″ small forward won three NBA championships with the Lakers before pursuing a career in film, television and esports.
Jamie Foxx and Rick Fox have more in common than just their surnames and acting talents, though. Foxx displayed his own basketball skills during a three-point shootout with Dallas Mavericks star Luka Dončić last November.
Much to Dončić’s surprise, the comedian/actor hit nothing but net from beyond the arc. “Get that 10-minute contract, baby,” he joked while rocking a custom “Foxx #13” Mavs jersey.
