When it comes to his daughters, Jamie Foxx doesn’t mess around.
On Wednesday, April 7’s episode of E! News’ Daily Pop, E!’s Justin Sylvester caught up with the 53-year-old actor to discuss his new Netflix show, Dad Stop Embarrassing Me. The new sitcom, which arrives on the streaming service April 14, follows a single dad (Foxx) as he tries to figure out fatherhood after his teenage daughter moves in.
As Foxx is executive producing the series alongside his 27-year-old daughter, Corinne Foxx, he revealed his real-life fatherhood style has crept into the show. “My daughter never got in trouble…Like, I never had to say the words, ‘I know you ain’t coming in here late. I know that ain’t alcohol on your breath,'” he shared. “As far as my character, I mean, that’s all the way me.”
So, like his character on the show, Foxx revealed he isn’t afraid to embarrass his daughters. Case in point: When daughter Corinne first started dating, he said he transformed into “a private eye.”
He noted, “By the time she got the person there, I already knew everything about him.”
