While on set, Diaz wore a casual, loose-fitting black sweatshirt that concealed her fit frame, per Daily Mail. Her matching black pants and pale pink-framed glasses added color to her outfit.
Diaz appeared on set make-up free before dressing up for her scene with her long blonde hair styled in a messy, shoulder-length cut. The “Charlie’s Angels” actress was spotted chatting with her young co-star, McKenna Roberts, as they reviewed their scripts.
Despite Foxx’s absence, production continued with two body doubles standing for him. The two men wore matching costumes with a gray jacket, burgundy shirt, dark jeans, and white trainers. They even sported goatees and short haircuts similar to Foxx’s signature style to complete the resemblance.

Jamie Foxx’s Unknown Condition Is Improving
Sources confirmed to TMZ last week that Foxx was hospitalized due to a severe medical condition. However, few details have been released about the situation, leaving many wondering what exactly happened to the Oscar-winning actor.
CNN reported on Friday that Foxx was still under observation at the hospital, with tests being conducted to determine the cause of his health scare. An insider revealed, “They are running tests and still trying to figure out what exactly happened.”
Foxx’s family members reportedly traveled from out of town to be with him; however, there is no update yet on when he will be released from the hospital or return to filming his role in “Back in Action.”
Despite the lack of details, a source told TMZ, “He’s communicating now, and that’s good news,” indicating that Foxx may have experienced some difficulties communicating at some point during his medical emergency.
“Back in Action” has been touted as Diaz’s return to acting after a hiatus, with Foxx being instrumental in convincing her to come out of retirement. However, reports suggest that Diaz plans to retire permanently from acting after a string of challenging experiences on set.
