Foxx spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner while promoting his new action caper, Baby Driver-- along with co-stars Ansel Elgort and Jon Hamm -- and the actor opened up about art and burgeoning artists, revealing, "I had Ed Sheeran sleep on my couch for six weeks."
"Before he made it, he came to my crib," Foxx recalled. "So did Anthony Hamilton, Nick Cannon, all these [people]. You gotta press anybody that's got that artistic feel, that touch, you've got to lift them up."

"He really spreads the love, and he's so supportive of everything," Elgort shared. "As a young actor walking onto this set -- and this goes for Jon as well -- I was so excited to do this movie, but I didn't expect any kind of relationship with these guys, where they would be so supportive. [But] they've become mentors."
"He invited me to his house and said, 'Come to the studio, I want to hear your music,'" Elgort recounted. "He's been so supportive through everything and it's just awesome because it made this process so much more fun."
"My oldest daughter is completely different from my youngest daughter. My oldest daughter, I remember trying to pick her up in high school in a Rolls-Royce and she wouldn't get in the car," Foxx said with a laugh,explaining that she was embarrassed by the ostentatious display of wealth. "She's been so cool in that sense, and now doing her own thing, writing."
"Then my youngest daughter. That's the road dog," Foxx added. "We going everywhere, we're doing everything. We're doing it all."
