Jamie Foxx is attempting to reconcile with his biological parents who abandoned him more than four decades ago.

Foxx, born Eric Marlon Bishop, was left in the care of his mother's foster parents when he was seven months old and struggled to understand why his parents did not make contact with him as he grew up.
The "Django Unchained" star is now trying to build bridges with his parents and has even moved his mother, Louise, into his home in an effort to forge a relationship with her.
He tells Britain's The Sunday Times Magazine, "We're trying to learn (about) each other. The one thing I think is great is she's in the same house, because you realize certain things that you missed when you were growing up, like, 'Oh, I do that because of that,' or, 'Oh, I do this because of that.' It's profound."
Attempts to reconcile with his father, who has since converted to Islam, are a little more strained, but Foxx remains hopeful.
He says, "Fingers crossed, it will become a real thing. But the door is open. That's one thing I've learnt: always keep the door and your heart open. ... I don't hold a lot of grudges. ... But it's tough, y'know (sic)? Because there are questions, like, 'What happened? Where were you? Were you stricken with something? Could you not make it?' Growing up, I would always go, man ... I'm a good dude. I wasn't the kid getting in trouble. I was quarterback on the high school football team. And he only lived 28 miles away! So I always said to myself, y'know (sic), I'm gonna (sic) grade him a little harder for that, because he could have tried."
