"They seemed cozy," says Thom. "[Foxx] had people around but they weren’t surrounding him or keeping him away from the rest of the set and crew and actors," she adds of the actor, who she said was "incredible to work with."
In May 2022, photos surfaced of Foxx and a woman who appeared to be Huckstepp snuggling on a yacht in Cannes, France.
It is unclear how long Foxx and Huckstepp have been dating. Prior to his relationship with Huckstepp, Foxx dated Katie Holmes for six years. He also shares his two daughters, Corrine, 29, and Anelise, 14, with his exes Connie Kline and Kristin Grannis, respectively.
Thom, the actor who worked on Foxx's recent commercial, says the actor was considerate with everyone on set for the commercial, which features him playing a piano as he speaks about the sports-betting app.
"One of my favorite actors, and he was kind and humble and hilarious — all wrapped up in a ball of energy," Thom says, adding: "[Foxx] came over to our table (we were sitting right behind him while he played piano) and just opened up to us. As private as he is, he was pretty open to our table about his situation without telling us exactly what happened."
Thom added that Foxx's ability to improvise while on camera is "unmatched" as she shared that everyone on set seemed to enjoy interacting with him.
"The entire set was laughing at his jokes. He is talented in the most natural way," she adds.
Foxx shared a photo of himself in Las Vegas back in July while he was filming the BetMGM commercial that also served as one of his first public social media posts since he was hospitalized in April. The actor has been spotted in public a number of times in recent months and wrote in an Instagram post in August that he is "finally startin to feel like myself" again.
