Jamie Foxx, Channing Tatum: Celebrities Can't Keep Anything Secret

The White House Down stars on fame, politics and their new film.

Published June 28, 2013

Fame comes at a price, and few have paid as dearly as Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum.

The A-listers, who co-star in White House Down, have seen their stars rise to new heights over the past few years, but have had to make sacrifices for their success. "You give up your anonymity," Tatum tells us. "When you're a celebrity, you can't keep anything secret," adds Foxx. 

The Oscar-winning actor, who plays the president in the action film, also talks about the sea change in America that has made having a Black president normal for his kids' generation. Plus, the actors play our game of shag, marry or kill with three Black pop culture icons: Wanda, Sheneneh and Madea.
