The Hollywood Reporter

Back in action! 

Every year, The Hollywood Reporter rounds up some of the most buzzed about actors from the biggest films of the year and picks their brain about everything from their career success and acting process to their motivations for some of their biggest roles. This year, for THR's actor roundtable interview, they spoke with Shia LaBeouf, Robert DeNiro, Adam Sandler, Jamie Foxx, Adam Driver and Tom Hanks

All of whom have had a long and varied career, but the one thing they all have in common is their passion for their craft. Jamie recalled one particularly tough moment for him early in his career, "I remember Oliver Stone, when I first auditioned [for Any Given Sunday], he was like, ‘You're horrible.' And I was like, ‘What?' He was like, ‘Just get the f--k out of here.' As I'm walking out he said, ‘Jamie Foxx, slave to television.' But I learned from that toughness," he shared. 

Shia also chimed in with his experience with the director while working on Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. "He would never look me in the eyes," he revealed. "He always looked just above my eye, to the eyelid."

Regardless of that experience and what it taught him, Jamie also revealed that if he could go back and do any of it again, he wouldn't change a single thing. 

"If I gave myself any advice, I would have gone left instead of right, then I probably wouldn't have ended up in this situation," he shared about what he would tell his younger self. "I wanted to be married and work at Kodak—and all that sort of fell through. So, boom! I said, ‘I'm on my way and I'll figure it out.' You've got to live it and then look back and say, ‘OK.' Anything could have set [me] in a different direction and I wouldn't be sitting here, and I wouldn't change sitting here for the world."

Things definitely seemed to work in his favor! 

Will Smith's Colonoscopy Got "Very Real" When Doctors Found Precancerous Polyp

Will Smith's Colonoscopy Got "Very Real" When Doctors Found Precancerous Polyp

It's safe to say that Will Smith's colonoscopy vlog did not go as planned. 

During his live recording of the procedure, doctors told the Bad Boys for Life star that they had discovered a precancerous polyp, leaving the 51-year-old actor shaken up. Will opened up about the scary experience on Wednesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he said things "got real" very fast. To make matters worse, he captured the terrifying moment on camera!

"I thought it was fun, I was gonna vlog it, you know?" he told host Ellen DeGeneres, explaining that he went into the procedure with high spirits. "So, I was like, ‘Oh, this'll be cool. I'm gonna vlog my colonoscopy…' And I do it. So, we do the whole thing and I'm vlogging. And I was like, ‘Hey, it's time now we're gonna do—let's do the final piece where the doctor tells me everything.'"

Then, things changed very quickly.

"And she was like, ‘Oh, yeah, they found a precancerous polyp,'" Will continued. "I was like, ‘That's not funny.' And then all of a sudden it turned very real, you know? It was just a good thing that they removed it and it was really great."

After expressing his gratitude for the doctors that helped him, the Aladdin star took a moment to stress the importance of getting a colonoscopy. "It is so important to take those health issues very seriously and go," he said. "And I'm telling you, have yourself checked out! They caught it early. It was done."

Ellen chimed in, "And you don't remember it. The drugs are fantastic. It's the day before the procedure—it's the worst day. That's the worst day."
