Academy Award winning actor and Grammy Award winning singer Jamie Foxx is the latest celebrity to hit the internet with a nude picture but this A-lister is not shying away from the scandal.
On Monday night’s Tonight Show, Conan O’Brien cleared the air over the leaked internet photo with the Law Abiding Citizen star. When asked if the naked picture is really him, Foxx admitted “it is me” but before he could explain how it was leaked, Conan congratulated the star and shook his hand. Foxx pretended to be bashful (yeah, right!).
Foxx then proceeded to explain the racy photograph (shown in the segment) was shot by himself when he was shooting the Miami Vice movie a few years back and sent to his make-up artist for a before-and-after comparison of his physical training for a nude scene. As most celebrities have found out the hard way, the photograph was intercepted by internet hackers.
“In transferring that material, I guess these people hang out on the internet and grabbed the picture and put it out on the internet.”
The scandal has proved fortunate for the award winning talent — Foxx confesses it has impressed the ladies and increased his gay fan base.
