According to CNN, Foxx surprised fans by appearing at the Critics Choice Association‘s Celebration of Cinema and Television: Honoring Black, Latino, and AAPI Achievements on Monday, December 4.

The 55-year-old was honored with the Vanguard Award for his performance in the 2023 thriller and drama, ‘The Burial.’

The outlet reports that Foxx received a standing ovation as he walked on stage. From there, the actor thanked the audience and explained that he’s “been through some things.”

“You know, it’s crazy; I couldn’t do that six months ago. I couldn’t actually walk,” Foxx told the crowd, getting emotional.

The 55-year-old went on to humorously deny rumors he’s been “cloned” before pivoting back to his health scare.

“It feels good to be here,” Foxx explained. “I cherish every single minute now; it’s different. You know, it’s beyond — I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy ’cause it’s tough when it’s almost over…”

Foxx went on to joke that he “saw the tunnel” but “didn’t see the light.”
