The Morning After

Best Actor Jamie Foxx settles in for a long ride with his new golden pal

Posted on

Fifteen hours after Jamie Foxx won the Best Actor Oscar, he’s still giving the golden guy the star treatment. ”His assistant took [the Oscar] out of this velvet bag and gave it to him,” says photographer Art Streiber, who caught up with Foxx at the Kodak Theatre at 11 a.m. the morning after the ceremony. ”He was subdued, very quiet, almost in a fog.” And who could blame him, after months of Oscar buildup, the show itself, and a long night of partying? ”He sat down in the limo and managed a tiny smile, and we shot that one smile,” says Streiber. No rest for the weary, though — shortly after this picture was taken, Foxx closed the door to his limo for the four-hour drive to the Jarhead set. Here’s hoping he finally got some much-needed sleep.
