Personal Quotes (2)

[on performing 'Sing my song' with his estranged sister in 'Dreamgirls'] I love the intimate moments in acting. You get a chance to communicate and everything is about you and the other person. [It] really spoke to me just about staying together and us reuniting. One of the cameramen told me a few days afterwards..that he hadn't spoken to his brother in six years and when he watched us shoot that scene the whole day he called his brother and they reconciled. For me that makes my art, my craft, really mean something and I think that, at the end of the day, that's what it's all about.
[on working with Jamie Foxx in "Dreamgirls"] The biggest thing I learned from him is, in the midst of the chaos that goes along with stardom, it's just to remain true to yourself. He was always very charismatic and open to share his journey with me on and off the camera. It seems like he's always been like that..[The] same positive energy that he has about just being an artist he probably had from day one..and that spoke the loudest to me.
