Named after Academy Award Winner Jamie Foxx, The Foxx is when an actor or actress achieves cinema's highest honor, and responds by signing their name to the next available project, regardless of quality and story, for the sole purpose of parlaying the recent accolade into big fucking piles of cash. Case in point. Stealth.
Following his amazing performance in 2004's Ray, Foxx still drunk from his own fame, jumped on board Stealth.....no need to really elaborate on that mess. The list of bad decision making and script choices following such success is virtually endless in Hollywood. Below are a few of the more notable:
Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for 1991's The Silence of the Lambs, and then mailed it in for 1992's Freejack.
Kevin Spacey was a best supporting Oscar winner in 1995's The Usual Suspects, and delivered an unusually suspect performance in his next project Outbreak.
Julia Roberts won an Oscar in 2000's Erin Brockovich (why I still don't know), and has yet to make a watchable movie since.....or prior.
Dustin Hoffman took home the Oscar for best actor in 1988's Rain Man, and then gave us back to back winners in Family Business, and Dick Tracy.
Halle Berry, for reasons still unknown won an Oscar for her role in 2001's Monster's Ball. Fortunately she quickly returned to form in 2004's Catwoman.
When actors and actresses reach the highest level of their art (or think they have), and rapidly switch gears to whore themselves to the machine that is Hollywood....they have been Foxxed.
