Jamie Foxx opens up on why he has never married


Jamie Foxx recently opened up on why he doesn't believe marriage is for him.

"The 2.5 children, the wood paneling on the station wagon and the cottage, I didn't think that was for me," Foxx shared during a recent interview with E! News.

He said he thinks his relationships with daughters Corrine Foxx, 27, and Annalise Bishop, 12, are stronger because he steered away from that tradition.

Pointing to some of his friends' failed marriages as an example, he shared, "Growing up, Corrine was like, 'Well people are married, and that's what they have, my friends. But then a lot of those marriages ended up not doing well as the kids got older.'"

"Unfortunately, we saw the kids get fractured from their families," he continued. "Us, we actually came together more, so I don't know what that is, I just know that it is different but it's a whole lot of love."

The 53-year-old "Soul" star added, "The pressure of me being married, I don't think we've even had conversations about it. They just love their daddy, and I just keep moving."

During another interview on "Good Morning America" on Monday, Foxx spoke more about how much family is prioritized in his life.

"I always live in a place of guilt by sometimes living my life if I feel like I haven't put the time in with my kids," he said.

"There's nothing like that -- there's no feeling that you get when your kid smiles and is happy to see you coming," he added.

The actor said he is very "proud" of his daughters.

"She's a producer on my show now, doing the TV show," he said about Corrine, also mentioning his new Netflix series she is working on, "Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!"

He said his youngest, Annalise, is "playing the piano -- she's on the guitar and she's 5'10" at 13 years old!"

"Her last game before COVID, she was playing with the boys, she had 21 points, 17 rebounds, 5 blocks," he gushed.

he never had the right women to married yet and life is to short to just jump into life time commitment with just looks


he never married because he want have to split his money in half! just pay child support, maybe break the mother off a little bit and you done! stay free as a bird!

HAPPY days!!!

I can understand what he's saying. cause i think u should get married one if not at all. cause i know so many that has been married 2 or 3times. So marriage isn't for everyone and u don't have to get married to be happy. marriage isn't for everyone
