The Bad Boys star told Extra that his thoughts are very much with the 55-year-old at this trying time.

Lawrence also called Foxx "one of the best that we got in Hollywood. Not only one of the best entertainers, but a good person."

Foxx's mysterious "medical complication"

On April 12, the Django Unchained actor's daughter, Corinne, issued a concerning statement, letting everyone know that her dad had "experienced a medical complication," without clarifying exactly what it was.

Back then, she added: "Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers."

Meanwhile, work on Back In Action – also starring Cameron Diaz – is continuing with a body double filling in for Foxx, according to TMZ.
