Cameron Diaz defends Jamie Foxx following set rumours about Netflix movie

Cameron Diaz has dispelled rumors about Jamie Foxx’s behavior on the set of their new movie, describing her co-star as “a professional on every level.”

The Charlie’s Angels star will appear alongside Foxx in the upcoming Netflix action comedy Back in Action, having previously collaborated with him on Annie and Any Given Sunday.

Addressing speculation about Foxx’s alleged poor behavior on Molly Sims’ Lipstick on the Rim podcast, Diaz clarified that “Jamie is the best. I love that guy so much. He’s such a special person, and he’s so talented, so much fun. We have so much fun on the set with him, and he’s just a professional on every level.”

“I really hate all of the things that were being said about our set,” Diaz expressed regarding the rumors. “You just want to scream at the top of your lungs, like, ‘What are you talking about?'”

The lead actress of The Holiday then explained that production delays on their film were not uncommon, dismissing them as routine challenges in the industry.

“The hiccups that happened throughout production are the natural kinds of things that happen, but nothing got delayed other than, obviously, toward the end,” the star mentioned, alluding to Foxx’s hospitalization in April this year.

Foxx has not yet discussed his health scare, nor did he choose to address the set rumors. Diaz commended his decision, describing it as “classy.”

“He’s like, ‘Nope. Just let them [talk],'” Diaz explained. “We know the truth. Still, it just really made me angry.”

After his hospitalization, the Django Unchained star expressed gratitude on Instagram to those who supported him during his “unexpected dark journey.”

“You’re looking at a man who is thankful,” Foxx wrote in August. “Finally starting to feel like myself… it’s been an unexpected dark journey… but I can see the light…”

He added: “I’m thankful to everyone that reached out and sent well wishes and prayers… I have a lot of people to thank… you just don’t know how much it meant… I will be thanking all of you personally… and if you didn’t know… GOD IS GOOD… all day every day…”
