ET's Rocsi Diaz recently caught up with Jamie Foxx during Super Bowl weekend in New York City, where the Oscar-winning actor was hosting his Sirius Radio channel The Foxxhole!
Aside from dishing on his upcoming films Rio 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the multi-talented star of course had the upcoming Super Bowl on the brain, and he revealed that he actually just chatted with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers about the big game.
"I was on a plane with Aaron Rodgers and I talked to him the whole flight about the game, and it was very interesting to hear what his take was," he told ET. "He didn't necessarily go out on a prediction, but he did say that Seattle's not going to be a pushover."
Foxx also explained why he's rooting for the Seattle Seahawks.
"I think I gotta lean towards Seattle because there's something going on," he said. "I like the fact that [Richard] Sherman is making it an issue. What people don't understand is that everyone roots for Payton Manning -- which I do as well -- but when everyone roots for you, it's great. But when somebody says, 'Forget that, I think your ball's wobbly. Forget that. I'm going at you.' To me that's saying something about what you think your team's going to be able to do, so I'm leaning a little bit towards Seattle."
