Foxx on Fame: I Only Abuse It at Clubs

12/24/2006 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie Foxx uses his powers of fame for good -- by trying to get as much free stuff as possible.

In an interview with "Dreamgirls" co-star Beyonce Knowles for Moviefone's "Unscripted" series, Foxx admits fame has its perks. "You can use the fame for certain things that are meaningful, like getting into the clubs," Jamie jokes, "...get me a bottle thrown in. I just like using it for something that is heartfelt."

A fan asked asked them to name any divas they'd worked with in the past. Althought the two kept their mouths shut, chances are, all they had to do was look in the mirror ... or at each other!

Seriously    

Foxx is not in the same league as Denzel - acting or in looks.

I think Foxx is not getting a fair shake. He appears more sincere than most. His Ray Charles role was/is incredible.

Leave Jamie alone. He's just playing.

And Beyonce has a good voice, she was just playing a character who did not. Stop confusing the character with the actress. It's nonsense. The girl had to know she wasn't the "star" when she signed on for the role. the story is always about the big girl which used to Jennifer Holiday, now it's Jennifer Hudson. The whole cast was top notch!!

Jamie Foxx's ego is out of hand. He tries to talk all sexy. Not sure why he suddenly thinks he is so cool? I dont; think he can sing and am surprised he has had so much press about it. He should have stayed in comedy. Not sure why all these people think they can do everything well. They can't!

Now, why does that not surprise me? Jamie is abusing his celebrity in more than clubs, I bet. These celebrities are far too over-rated. Not being a Jamie Foxx or a Beyonce fan, I'll pass on Dreamgirls. I am sick of these celebrities chasing old records and not establishing any credibility as artists on their own merits, outside what others have done already. Jamie played a great Ray Charles, but I wouldn't go so far as to say he is a great actor. He doesn't fall in the same categories as Denzel, Forrest, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson, by no stretch of the imagination. And as far as him being R&B artist, he's just marginal, just a Baby R Kelly wannabe.

I know once I am famous I will take advantage of it like no other. Don't get me wrong I will def do mostly good with that fame. But the social aspects of it twill be out of control.
