Cameron Diaz refuted the rumors that Jamie Foxx made her give up acting.

"You just want to scream at the top of your lungs, like, ‘What are you talking about?'" she said, referring to the gossip that the "Blame It" singer was allegedly "making everything miserable" on set which supposedly made her want to quit acting.

"Jamie is the best. I love that guy so much," she continued. "He’s such a special person and he’s so talented, so much fun."

Diaz shared that while there were "hiccups" during filming, they were "natural things that happen."

She also chose not to comment on Foxx's mysterious illness that left him unable to walk for a time.

"That’s something that is not my place to speak about," she explained. "When I see and hear people trying to take another person down like that … [Jamie is] so classy. He’s like, ‘Nope. Just let them [talk].'"

"I wouldn't wish what I went through on my worst enemy, because it's tough when you almost... When it's almost over, when you see the tunnel," he noted. "I saw the tunnel. I didn't see the light! It was hot in that tunnel so I didn't know where I was going. S---, am I going to the right place? I seen the devil goin 'C’mon, now.'"

"My sister and my daughter were so great at not letting anybody know anything that happened," he continued. "I want to say six months ago I couldn't fathom that this could happen or that I would be here, but as I walk up here to this microphone and get this Vanguard Award, all I can say is 'Lord, have mercy, Jesus.'"
