Jamie Foxx's body double fills in with Cameron Diaz on movie

Published By Alexandra Heilbron on Apr 19, 2023

As Jamie Foxx remains hospitalized in Georgia after experiencing an undisclosed "medical complication," a body double filled in for him on the set of the movie Back in Action. The double was seen filming scenes with Cameron Diaz on the Atlanta set this week.

Foxx was taken to the hospital on April 12, 2023, after suffering a medical crisis. His daughter Corrine first announced the news, writing on social media: "We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery."

The crew was told Foxx would be late Wednesday morning, but after two hours, they were told he wasn't coming at all and filming was called off for the day. However, work resumed a few days later and filming is expected to wrap this week, on schedule, with the help of Foxx's stand-in.

Back in Action marks Cameron's return to movies after a nine-year absence -- she was last seen on the big screen in Annie in 2014, which also co-starred Jamie Foxx.

A source recently told Entertainment Tonight that Jamie "is healing. He feels the love from everyone." ~Alexandra Heilbron

    That's good that they can finish the film without him but why all the secrecy? Why not just say what the diagnosis is?

    I am a retired RN. By two weeks after Jamie Foxx's hospitalization his medical team probably has a good idea what his diagnosis is. Why is it being withheld from his fans who love him ??
