Switched At Birth: Celebrities Who Were Adopted

- By

2. Jamie Foxx

Actor and comedian Jamie Foxx was born Eric Bishop in 1967. His parents separated shortly thereafter, and his mother didn’t feel capable of raising him on her own, so his maternal grandmother adopted him at seven months. Years later, during his Academy Award acceptance speech for his role in the critically acclaimed biopic Ray, Foxx thanked his grandmother for her hard work and unconditional love. He has also hosted holiday specials concerning adoption and often mentions the cause in interviews.
