Jamie Foxx finally TALKS his mysterious hospitalization and near-death experience


Jamie Foxx has finally broken his silence on what led to his mysterious hospitalization in April 2023.


The 56-year-old actor was hospitalized for an unspecified medical emergency in mid-April 2023, while filming the spy comedy Back in Action with Cameron Diaz – with the star later revealing he was left unable to walk and ‘saw the tunnel but not the light’ as he battled for survival. 

The star was filmed in Phoenix telling fans of his medical emergency, he ‘had a bad headache’ so he asked his ‘boy for Advil.’


Foxx snapped his fingers and said: ‘I was gone for 20 days,’ and added he ‘does not remember anything.’

The Ray star said his sister and daughter took him to his ‘first doctor’ and said: ‘Next doctor said, “[There’s] something going on up there”‘ – pointing at his head.

He then said: ‘I won’t say it on camera.’


In December 2023 Foxx revealed he ‘saw the tunnel but not the light’ as he opened up about his near-death experience for his first public appearance since his shock health scare at the Critics Choice Association’s event.

The actor was visibly moved as he accepted the Vanguard Award in a 12 minute speech at the association’s Celebration of Cinema & Television: Honoring Black, Latino and AAPI Achievements in Los Angeles.

Foxx admitted that he could not ‘walk’ six months earlier, via Deadline, though he refrained from revealing too many details about the medical crisis that put him in the hospital.

‘You know, it’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago,’ he said after strutting across the stage to the microphone. ‘I couldn’t actually walk.’

‘I want to thanks everybody. I’ve been through something, I’ve been through some things,’ he said to thunderous applause.

‘I cherish every single minute now — it’s different,’ he continued. ‘I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy because it’s tough when it’s almost over … when you see the tunnel. I saw the tunnel — I didn’t see the light.

‘It was hot in that tunnel too, I don’t know where I was going. ‘S**t, am I going to the right place?’”
