Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz have been busy shooting their upcoming Netflix film, Back in Action. Diaz especially came out of retirement to act in the film only because Foxx requested and convinced her. However, filming the movie hasn’t been a pleasant experience for any of them.
To make matters worse, Foxx was admitted to an Atlanta hospital on April 11 and had to be revived by doctors. His daughter Corrine Foxx shared updates about his condition on social media. This is the latest incident in a series of on-set debacles that have plagued the film and the actors.
Jamie Foxx Revived By Doctors After On-Set Incident
Radar Online reported that Jamie Foxx fell ill while filming his Netflix movie, Back in Action with Glenn Close and Cameron Diaz. He was taken to a hospital in Atlanta where he required immediate attention. The site wrote:
“Jamie suffered a serious medical episode and needed immediate attention. It was touch and go for days with him, and he had to be revived — he is very lucky to be alive. Sources said the desperate emergency room physicians likely saved his life! He’s very lucky he got the treatment he did.”
Corrine Foxx gave fans an update about her father’s condition on social media after the horrific episode. She wrote, “Luckily due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery.” But why did the actor suffer such a devastating medical incident that made him stay in the hospital for more than a week? Radar Online sources believe that it was due to unimaginable stress as a result of working on Back in Action.
Why Did Jamie Foxx Have To Be Hospitalized?
Radar Online reported that Jamie Foxx’s doctors believe that his sudden collapse was a long time coming. They also reportedly stated that he could have been gone if they hadn’t acted with urgency. The site said, “Jamie suffered from high blood pressure, which doctors say can cause clots in the brain leading to a stroke. Doctors believe this was a long time coming, and really, if they hadn’t acted fast, Jamie might well have been a goner.”
The outlet further revealed that Foxx’s situation was the result of unimaginable stress. It was probably due to all the unpleasant situations he had to face on his new movie set. It was previously reported that the Django Unchained actor fired several crew members after finding himself in a scam worth about $40,000 on his set. Authorities were also involved and many production higher-ups were reportedly looking into the matter.
It was rumored that Cameron Diaz was thinking about retiring again due to the set drama. As for Foxx’s current condition, Radar Online backed up Corrine Foxx’s statement and reported that the actor was “awake and alert but still recovering in the hospital under doctor’s care.” Further updates are awaited.
Back in Action doesn’t have a release date on Netflix yet.
