Jamie Foxx is a well known American actor. While most people know of him for his dynamic sense of humor, he is the first person to ever be nominated for three acting awards in the same year at the Golden Globes. His accomplishments are many and it looks like his daughter Corinne is not only following in his footsteps, but getting in the way of his dating life.
Not ever shying away from the clubbing lifestyle, Foxx has run into his daughter’s friends while on the dance floor. He is having to come to grips with how the younger generation reacts to finding out that he’s closing in on 50.
“When I was asked the other day by a 20-something girl how old I was, she looked at me as though 49 was a terminal disease!”
While he has been linked to Katie Holmes for the last few years, he recently revealed that he is currently single.
Jamie Foxx has brought his beautiful daughters with him many times to celebrate his accomplishments. Corinne, his oldest child with Connie Kline is receiving notoriety in a Dolce and Gabbana campaign. It is featuring the attractive children of celebrities as well as social media stars, actors, musicians, and models. The stunning 23 year old has shared pictures on Instagram of the launch of the fashion empire’s new line.
Corinne, who was named Miss Golden Globe in 2016, is not just a pretty face. She has recently taken to social media to share her passion for activism. The young woman went before the American government as a voice for mental health. She has dealt with her own anxiety and partners with NAMI, national alliance on mental illness, to change the conversation surrounding the disease.
No matter how small you may feel, you are capable of evoking big change. It all starts with getting out there and advocating for the causes and issues that you believe in. As a millennial, I've learned that social media can only go so far. It was time for me to take physical action for the causes that I felt passionately about. Today, I had the honor to take on the nation's capitol with @namicommunicate to advocate and lobby for Medicaid and prioritizing mental health. We are lucky to make our visit today as health care is a major discussion point on the floor. It's been an eye opening, adrenaline rush and I've loved every minute of it! Check out @refinery29'S Instagram story for an in depth look at my day! #act4mentalhealth #namicon17 #stigmafree
Not letting anything stop her, she has worked hard to push through her struggles and go on to leave a lasting mark on the world. At a time when most share only their best selves, Corinne is highlighting her dark days and helping shed light on recovery. She is a brave voice in an age that expects perfection.
While her father has opened many doors for the young model, she has not been lured in to the greed of fame. She pursues authenticity and works hard to be her best self.
Keep an eye on this young woman as she stars in the Dolce and Gabbana millennial campaign and continues to work as a lobbyist for mental health.
