Foxx ‘starstruck’ by Berry

Jamie Foxx is in awe of his friend, actress Halle Berry.

The 46-year-old Django Unchained actor has worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest names since his early days as a stand-up comic.

But even after decades on the scene, Jamie admits there’s still one A-list actress he feels tongue-tied around.

“I'm always starstruck when I see Halle Berry,” he told

“[We are good friends], but I still go, ‘Oh, man, look at you!’" he mused, explaining, “I just love her style, I love her craft and everything like that. She keeps it all going, you know?”

Jamie has a lot of admiration for his fellow thespians. He recently gave props to Leonardo DiCaprio, revealing he was so transfixed by the actor’s latest work he’s had to see it over and over again.

Asked about the last person he complimented, Jamie shared: “Leonardo DiCaprio on The Wolf of Wall Street after I saw the movie. I've seen the film a thousand times. I told him, 'It was amazing, what you did for art was amazing, and I'm about to go wolfing tonight!'"

Jamie has several films in the works for later this year. His voice can currently be heard in cinemas, bringing life to the character Nico in animated adventure Rio 2; and he’s set to star later this year as the lovable Benjamin Stacks in the forthcoming movie musical release of Annie, starring Hollywood darling Quvenzhané Wallis in the title role.

Next month, Jamie will play the villain Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a film that has his four-year-old daughter, Annalise, excited to see her dad be a part of.

“My daughter is like, ‘Spider-Man is going to whoop your butt, right? Spider-Man gets to kick your butt?’ And I am like, ‘Yeah, he gets to kick my butt a little bit,’” he laughed during a recent interview with British newspaper The Sun.

“Last birthday she had a huge Spider-Man jumper and we didn’t even know I’d be doing Spider-Man,” he said.
