Jamie Foxx seems like a fun-loving guy.
And he and Katie Holmes seem like one of the more stable couples in Hollywood.
But this doesn't mean Jamie Foxx actually wants to discuss Katie Holmes in public.
The Academy Award nominee made that clear on Friday night during an interview with ESPN's Michael Smith.
Talking to the network prior to a celebrity basketball game, Foxx was asked the following question by Smith, who referenced a rumor about an activity in which he and Holmes recently engaged:
“I know you prepared because I saw pictures. Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball for Valentine’s Day? Like some real Love and Basketball?”
Pretty innocent, right?
It's not as though Foxx was asked whether Holmes was pregnant with his baby.
But it wasn't innocent enough for the actor.
You can see him squirm and smirk in the following video, clearly uncomfortable with the inquiry and unsure how to respond.
And then he figured out that he had no interest in responding.
Foxx calmly got up, received some help taking his microphone off and slowly walked away.
He didn't cause a major scene, he just decided he had enough of the interview once it got remotely personal.
Foxx and Holmes have been together for about five years. This is a very serious romance,.
But it's also one of the most private ones in all of entertainment, which may be why it works for them and may be why Foxx didn't want to discuss it.
About that basketball rumor, though?
About how they were seen on a court in Calabasas?
“They were really happy,” an onlooker told Us Weekly of their Valentine's Day date, adding:
“Katie was dancing as they walked in and Jamie was laughing. They seem really at ease and truly enjoying each other.”
We'll just need to take this person's word for it.
