Jamie Foxx and Denzel Washington share their advice for people that want to follow in their footsteps. Flight star Denzel reveals what he said to his daughter, "You are black and you're a woman and you're dark-skinned at that, so you have to be a quadruple-triple threat and you know, a lot of actors are not actual actors, they are movie people or whatever it is. I said, you have to learn how to act, dance, sing, move on stage, that is the only place you learn how to act, in my humble opinion."

The Actors: On Bad Publicity
Jamie Foxx, John Hawkes and Denzel Washington share how they handle bad publicity and what they do to stay clear of it. Foxx also shares a story about how his recent contractor was a drug lord. "We vetted him because you have to check people out that come in your house," said the Django Unchained star. "We come to find out the feds were watching him for a year and so they didn't want him to come back dirty. So therefore I thought he was a clean guy, but once in a while a handle or something would come off and I would call him. But then I come to find out some of the fed guys were working in his construction place, so that’s why the shit was all shoddy," added Foxx.
