Jamie Foxx & Kerry Washington Share Cover To Promote Django
Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington gave an inside scoop to LA Confidential Magazine. Witness the pair’s chemistry with photos, quotes, and a sizzling video.
Foxx and Washington, who play man and wife in this month’s Django Unchained, also played husband and wife in the critically acclaimed 2004 flick, Ray.
Below are quotes from the article.
On their on-screen chemistry
“Chemistry is so weird in this business because you cannot manufacture it,” Foxx says, smiling at Washington as she completes his thought. “What you see with Jamie and me—it’s rare,” she says, “but it comes from a whole lot of crying, a whole lot of sharing, a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears.”
On the history behind Django Unchained
“There’s no words for what people went through,” Washington says. “We barely survived it for pretend for eight months. Jamie and I’d be texting each other in the middle of the night going, ‘If this goes on another week, I’m not gonna make it.’ I was calling my shrink on the regular and telling Quentin, ‘I’m gonna send you my bills.’”
Foxx on their first meeting during Ray
“I remember exactly when I first saw you. You were driving up in your little green car.” It was one of the original Priuses, she reminds him. “That’s right,” he says, slipping into a falsetto. ‘Little Miss Do-good. Keepin’ the community clean so we can stay a little longer on the earth,’ and I’m thinking, Here comes somebody!”
