Jamie Foxx reveals why he plans on never getting married

He’s one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors who has yet to tie the knot.

But Jamie Foxx has never desired to settle down in a traditional manner.  

The father-of-two, 53, revealed during an appearance on E! News’ Daily Pop why he never wanted to get married. 


Perpetual bachelor! Jamie Foxx revealed why he never plans on marrying during an interview with E!; pictured Monday in New York 

‘The 2.5 children, the wood paneling on the station wagon and the cottage, I didn’t think that was for me,’ he revealed on Monday.

Jamie, who has daughters Corrine Foxx, 27, and Annalise Bishop, 12, recalled watching his daughter’s friends suffer as their parents struggled in their marriage.


‘A lot of those marriages ended up not doing well as the kids got older. Unfortunately, we saw the kids get fractured from their families,’ Jamie said.

In comparison, Jamie says his family unit grew closer over the years.

‘Us, we actually came together more. So I don’t know what that is, I just know that it is different but it’s a whole lot of love.’

‘The pressure of being married, I don’t think we can have a conversation about it. I just keep moving,’ Jamie said.

Though the traditional family life may not be for him, Jamie insists on keeping his family close.

‘It was by design to have my whole family living with me, because I don’t want them living away from my circumstance,’ he said. ‘I want them to see and share the things that I go through. There’s a lot of hard work, there’s a lot of disappointment, but there’s a lot of things to celebrate.’

Jamie has daughter Corinne with Connie Kline and Annalise Bishop with his ex Kristin Grannis. 

The Ray actor, who is releasing his memoir Act Like You Got Some Sense on Tuesday, was famously linked to actress Katie Holmes following the end of her marriage to Tom Cruise.   

Jamie and Holmes dated secretively starting in 2013, shortly after her divorce from Tom Cruise.

The couple finally took their relationship public in the summer of 2019, only to break up shortly afterward.
