• Actor Jamie Foxx was recently hospitalized
  • He has finally appeared in public again
  • Foxx was given an award

Jamie Foxx, the star who always lights up the screen with his electrifying performances, made a stunning comeback at the Critics Choice Association's Celebration of Cinema and Television. This marked his first public appearance since his hospitalization in April due to medical complications.

Fans were happy to see him again

The buzz was electric as Foxx, unannounced, graced the stage to accept the prestigious Vanguard Award for his role in 'The Burial.' The crowd went wild as Foxx made his way to the stage, all on his own, a feat he humorously admitted was impossible six months ago.

"I couldn't do that six months ago, I couldn't actually walk to [the stage]. And I'm not a clone, I'm not a clone," he quipped, referencing his role in 'They Cloned Tyrone' and poking fun at his health challenges.

Foxx's speech was not just about laughs; it was a heartfelt reflection on his brush with mortality. "I cherish every single minute now, it's different," he confessed, sharing his newfound respect for life and art. He urged fellow artists, "Don't give up on your art, man, don't give up on your art."

Back in April, the world held its breath when Foxx's daughter, Corinne, revealed her father's hospitalization on Instagram. She assured fans that, thanks to quick action and excellent care, Foxx was on the road to recovery. The family requested privacy, but the love and concern from fans were palpable.

"I cherish every single minute now — it’s different,” he said. “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 so I didn't know where I was going. S---, am I going to the right place? I seen the devil goin 'C’mon, now.'"

In another lighter moment, Foxx assured the audience again that he was also not a clone, despite previous rumors. "I know a lot of people who were saying I was cloned out there. Boy, y'all ain't s---," he joked.

"Black people, when we almost die or go through something like that, there's two phrases, one of two phrases we say," Foxx continued. "One is, 'Lord, have mercy, Jesus. Lord, have mercy, Jesus.' "

The Road to Recovery Foxx, who is known for his resilience and humor, opened up about his ordeal on Instagram last July, sharing the gravity of the situation without wanting to worry his fans.

"I didn't want you to see me like that," he expressed, preferring to be remembered for his vivacious spirit.
