Foxx welcomed his eldest daughter in 1994 with ex Connie Kline, 49. He is also a dad to daughter Annalise Bishop, 12, whom he shares with Kristin Grannis.
The “Spider-Man: No Way Home” actor has maintained a close relationship with his kids. He even worked with Corinne on Netflix’s “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me,” who served as the show’s executive producer.
In March, Corinne posted a video of herself and her dad in celebration of their series’ debut.
“We did it @iamjamiefoxx 👨👧❤️ After years of telling our stories, we finally brought them to TV,” she wrote in the caption. “From my diary to @netflix , can’t tell you how surreal this moment is for us 🙏🏽 This was my first time serving as Executive Producer and wow… what a show to create!”
Growing Up In The Spotlight
While Corinne has been successful on her own, she had a hard time coping with the exposure that comes with her dad’s fame. In an interview on Togethxr’s More Than A Name project, the model talked about what it was like growing up with a famous dad.
“I’m very lucky because I think my dad, he’s such a unique talent, and one, he’s also a man. So it’s like our talents are different I can do things that he can’t I feel like we both have our own strong suits,” she explained.
“My parents did a really good job at instilling in me at an early age that my dad’s been red carpet for years and all that. That was not normal. You know, this is fun for right now, but this could also go away in two seconds,” Corinne continued.
“When I was a kid, I was a dancer, and that was my first experience of being in front of people and entertaining them. I just felt so in my element and so myself,” she shared. “When I graduated high school, I had a lot of people telling me, ‘you don’t have to go to college. You can just go straight into the entertainment world. Doors will open for you. You can be making millions of dollars.’ I just grew up my whole life, and I didn’t want to just ride on my dad’s coattails. I wanted to make my own name, do things for myself.”
Corinne added, “I was so grateful that I went to USC because I met the most incredible people and then I was able to find myself and find you know what my passions were naturally not just what was expected of me.”
Getting Candid About Mental Health
Corinne opened up to ET in May about her struggles with anxiety.
“I felt like people were always looking at me, were always expecting me to turn out a certain way,” she told the outlet. “Because of that, I went the opposite realm. I became very focused on perfection and always being in this very cookie cutter type of way, and that put a lot of pressure and anxiety on me to uphold this standard of never messing up. That definitely affected my mental health, and I’m still working through to unlearn those behaviors and those patterns and giving myself the grace to just be a human.”
