(Los Angeles) Oscar-winning American actor Jamie Foxx made his first public appearance in Hollywood after a health problem which, six months earlier, left him unable to walk, he said.
Making a surprise appearance at a film and television awards ceremony in Los Angeles Monday night, the actor said he’s “been through a lot.”
” It’s crazy. I couldn’t even do that six months ago, I couldn’t walk,” he told the audience, without specifying the nature of the health problem that affected him.
Jamie Foxx, whose real name is Eric Marlon Bishop, spoke for the first time in a video in July, claiming to have “come back from hell”.
Suffering from a “medical complication”, the 55-year-old actor was rushed to a medical facility in Georgia, in the south of the United States, in April, where he was filming a film for Netflix.
His daughter, Corinne Foxx, was keen to dispel the rumors a month later, assuring on Instagram that her father had “been out of the hospital for several weeks and [was recovering]”.
Jamie Foxx notably won the Oscar for best actor in 2005 for his stunning incarnation of singer Ray Charles, soul legend, in the biopic Ray.
He was also nominated for an Oscar for his role in Collateral the same year, and also made an impression by playing a slave conquering his freedom in Quentin Tarantino’s western Django Unchained.
In November, a sexual assault complaint was filed against Jamie Foxx in New York for alleged acts dating back to 2015.
