Did you know that Jamie Foxx and Ed Sheeran were close friends?
We had no idea, but during Jamie’s appearance on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ on Friday he revealed that he once let Ed stay at his house for six weeks when he was just getting started out in Los Angeles.
According to Foxx, he first met Sheeran when the “Castle on the Hill” singer performed on his radio show back in 2010.
“He’s incredible and I’m like, ‘Listen, I know you don’t have anywhere to go, just chill here,” reminisced Foxx. “I was giving him food, and my daughter was like, ‘Who do you have over here now?’ Because I would always champion an artist.”
Foxx went on to invite Sheeran to perform for an all-black crowd of 800, where he was well-received despite his unconventional instrument choice.
“He went up there on that ukulele and got a standing ovation in 12 minutes, and the rest is history,” Foxx recalled.
Foxx was joined by fellow guests Dame Judi Dench, Steve Carell, and Kristen Wiig.
