"The thing that shocks me is how girls react to you making it big," says Jamie Foxx on the most shocking thing that has happened to him in Hollywood. "I remember doing the comedy club at the Regency West in the hood — I was straight from Texas. When I got there, it was the most beautiful women in the world, and I sat down before I went up, and they didn’t know who I was. I said, “Hey, how you doing?” [He imitates their scornful look.] Then I go onstage and get a standing ovation and come back. “Why didn’t you tell us?!” It was sort of like a — what do you call it, a micro…microcosm of what the bigger picture is. Before I got my teeth closed up, my teeth were a little jagged, and this girl was just ragging on me about how, “Your teeth is all messed up, your teeth is all messed up!” Right?

Jamie Foxx is headed back to Saturday Night Live.

The Oscar winner will host the Dec. 8 episode with musical guest Ne-Yo, NBC announced Saturday.
