Cape Town – Jamie Foxx is one proud papa!
The Oscar-winning actor can't stop gushing about his daughter Corinne's big screen debut in the shark film, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged.
The movie had its premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and the 51-year-old was right by his daughter's side supporting her.
After the screening of the film, he posted a sweet message on Instagram. Alongside a photo of Corinne, he wrote: "As I watched the movie last night on pins and needles for so many reasons... palms sweaty nervous to watch my daughter in her first big Hollywood film and the fact that I have a gigantic fear of sharks.
He continued: "As soon as the movie started, and I saw my baby on that screen my nerves became pure adrenaline and my fear turned into absolute pride sitting next to my daughter and simultaneously watching her on screen was a proud papa tear-jerking moment. She was as cool sitting in her seat next to me as she was in the bottom of the ocean ducking and dodging killer sharks. At the end of the movie, when the whole audience was giving an ovation, my daughter looked at me as if to say, 'Daddy, I did it." And I looked at her and screamed, 'Baby, you killed that shit!'"
