On Saturday, January 21, 2024, Jamie Foxx, was spotted alongside Cameron Diaz in Atlanta, Georgia, sparking rumors of a return to the screens. 

The two were spotted while on the set of their upcoming movie, Back In Action

This is the first time Foxx has been seen at work, since his health scare in April 2023, which kept him out of the public eye for several months. 

The two movie stars appeared to be in a good mood as they were seen walking around in casual looks. 

The 51-year-old Diaz appeared in gray cargo-style pants paired with a white shirt and cream cardigan, while the They Cloned Tyrone actor sported navy pants and a dark gray sweater.

As previously reported by OK!, Foxx largely stepped out of the spotlight following his health emergency, as the star’s daughter, Corrine Foxx, uploaded updates about his condition.

“We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday,” Corinne wrote on April 12, 2023. “Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time,” she noted.

On December 4, 2023, Foxx became emotional at the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Cinema & Television: Honoring Black, Latino, and AAPI Achievements in Los Angeles where he made his first public appearance since the incident.

As he accepted the Vanguard Award for his performance in The Burial, he expressed his appreciation to everyone who supported him through his ordeal. He then divulged more details about his mysterious health scare, which he has largely been private about.

Foxx noted that he wouldn’t wish what he went through on his worst enemy, as it wasn’t a pleasant experience, to say the least. 

Addressing the rumor about him possibly being a clone, he expressed surprise as, according to him, all he asked of God at that point was mercy to see him through.
