Even though she is known as the daughter of Jamie Foxx, Corinne Foxx is making her own name for herself as both an actress and producer. In an interview on YouTube’s Togethxr channel, Foxx revealed she considered changing her last name because she didn’t want people to perceive her as riding her famed father’s coattails.

“I did consider, honestly, changing my last name. I had a lot of people telling me, ‘You don’t have to go to college. You can just go straight into the entertainment world, doors will open for you. You could be making millions of dollars,’ Foxx said, ”I just grew up my whole life and I didn’t want to just ride on my dad’s coattails. I wanted to, you know, make my own name, do things myself.”
