Jamie Foxx Wants To Get Closer To His Biological Mother

Despite an amazing career and celebrity status, Jamie Foxx is still humble enough to fix his inner demons.

For 45 years, the Oscar winning actor has struggled to understand why his birth mother (Louis) left him as an infant in the care of her foster parents. However, he’s finally working to amend their strained relationship.

The actor began their road to redemption by moving his mother into one of his homes. ”We’re trying to learn [about] each other, the one thing I think is great is she’s in the same house,” he tells Britain’s Sunday Times. ”You realize certain things that you missed when you were growing up, like ‘oh, I do that because of that,’ or ‘oh, I do this because of this.’”

He’s been successful in mending his mother-son relationship, but the same can’t be said about his father. “Fingers crossed, it will become a real thing, but the door is open. That’s one thing I’ve learned always keep the door open and your heart open–don’t hold grudges.”

With a man who has it all, it seems the one thing he really wants is what many take for granted–-family.
