Foxx off the booze
09:30 01 April 2005
Jamie Foxx has vowed "never to drink again" after going on 12-hour drinking session with Colin Farrell.
The Oscar-winning actor has become firm friends with the Irish hellraiser after working together on the big screen version of 'Miami Vice'. But Jamie lived to regret his decision of taking up Colin's offer of going drinking during the recent Easter Bank Holiday.
An onlooker at Miami Beach's Playwright Irish bar said: "Colin showed Jamie how the holiday is celebrated at home by enjoying pint after pint of Guinness.
"But Jamie wasn't feeling too good the next day and has been put off alcohol for a while!"
Earlier this month, it was revealed Jamie and Colin had become virtually inseparable on and off the set of the cop film.
Movie insiders said the two stars have been going out almost every night since shooting began, and Foxx is has been joining his co-star on regular nights out.
A source revealed: "They've become great friends. They work fantastically together on set and play hard off it, too."
Their friendship has even survived Farrell grabbing the Oscar Foxx won for 'Ray' and refusing to give it back.
The source added: "One day Jamie brought his Oscar to the set. Colin made a lunge for it, grabbed it and said, 'I want one!' Then, holding it to his chest, he made a hilarious fake acceptance speech about how honoured he was to have won it!"
