Olivia Munn is sharing the dating advice her friend Jamie Foxx gave her.
Appearing on Busy Philipps’ new talk show “Busy Tonight”, Munn shared a story about attending a party with whom she thought was her then-boyfriend. It turns out, he didn’t think she was his girlfriend. During the party, he began chatting with other women as Munn watched. It was then that Foxx noticed a visibly upset Munn standing alone, approached her, and encouraged her to stay at the party.
“The next morning I got a call from Jamie, and he left a voicemail and he said, ‘Did you come out here to be somebody’s girlfriend? No. Did you come out here to be somebody’s wife? No. Did you come out here just to date this guy? No. Did you come out here to be an actress? Yes.'”
His love advice continued: “‘Don’t you ever, ever let me see you cry about some guy like that ever again. Don’t you ever let some other guy make you feel like that ever again.'”
Calling Foxx her “big brother,” Munn says his advice has stuck with her over time.
“It was so sweet and he was just so earnest. He was just like, ‘I never want to see you let any man make you feel that small again,'” she recalls. “Every now and then it would pop into my head and, of course, sometimes I’ve kinda veered off, but when I think of that it brings me back to centre.”
