Jamie Foxx for Men's Health UK October 2013

On his work with younger actors: "One thing I've learnt is you have to rely on someone to tell you what's hot and what's not as you get older. That's what I do: I ask. I'm still learning how to stay current - and at the same time not lose who I am, not be too young."

On his ways of handling exposure and the media: "Here's what you're going to unlearn now. You have to pull yourself away from the media - not be so shiny in the next 10-years, because it hurts the art and that's the only thing that's going to survive. That's the tricky part: how do you navigate through the world and still be an artist?"

On his workouts: "I've been doing bench presses my whole life. The chest, the front - but I haven't been working my back, so it make me hunch forward."

On not losing himself: "You just have to live. I did it in the 'hood for a long time, and then I did it uptown, where the audience is Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and all those guys. You still remain the same person, and you get your stamp.It's like a passport."
