Jamie Foxx opened up about a jarring encounter with a famous director.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter during a discussion with several actors, the 51-year-old actor revealed that when he auditioned for the film "Any Given Sunday," director Oliver Stone had some choice words for him.

"I remember Oliver Stone, when I first auditioned (for 'Any Given Sunday'), he was like, ‘You're horrible.' And I was like, ‘What?' (Because) I was a television actor so everything was loud... He was like, ‘Just get the f--k out of here," Foxx remembered. "As I'm walking out, he said, ‘Jamie Foxx, slave to television.' But I learned from that toughness."

Foxx isn't the only actor to have struggled with the 73-year-old director, however.

"He would never look me in the eyes," revealed Shia LaBoeuf, who worked with Stone on "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps." "He always looked just above my eye, to the eyelid."

Regardless of the tough treatment, Foxx said he'd avoid giving his past self any advice to avoid such obstacles.

"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 said. After starring on "Sunday," Foxx would go on to win an Oscar for playing Ray Charles in "Ray" and snag another nomination for "Collateral." He also won a Grammy and a Golden Globe.

"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."

Jane Lynch weighs in on Gabrielle Union's 'AGT' exit: NBC needs to 'get their act together'

Jane Lynch weighs in on Gabrielle Union's 'AGT' exit: NBC needs to 'get their act together'

Jane Lynch is not holding back.

The actress and game show host opened up about Gabrielle Union's alleged firing from "America's Got Talent" after complaining of a "toxic" work environment.

"I don't know so much about it, but what I do know about it is I'm really glad she's standing up for herself," Lynch told Variety. "From what I've read... it sounds like NBC just, they gotta get their act together. They just really gotta get their act together around women and around race."

She added: "It just kind of feels like someone's asleep at the wheel over there."

Lynch, 59, has hosted the popular game show "Hollywood Game Night" on NBC since 2013 and has won two Emmys for hosting the show.

"(My experience with NBC has been) great," Lynch explained. "I love my producers, I love the show, the network's always great to me."

"I just think there's a blindness," she concluded.

Lynch is not the only actress to speak out in favor of Union, either. "Grey's Anatomy" staple Ellen Pompeo and "Will & Grace" star Debra Messing both blasted NBC on Twitter.

"It’s unfortunate that @nbc the same network that protected disgusting men like Matt Lauer and punished women for speaking out or not putting up with it...has not changed their practices or culture," tweeted Pompeo, 50. "I support @itsgabrielleu commitment to speaking up to injustice. It takes courage."

Similarly, Messing, 51, said: "This is disgusting behavior from a network that has been my professional home for decades. Yes, women become 'difficult,' when their insistence on a respectful and professional working environment, is ignored."

Stars like Patricia Arquette, Ariana Grande and Lin-Manuel Miranda have also voiced their support for Union.

Union, 47, and NBC executives recently had a five-hour meeting relating to her departure. Both Union and the network called the meeting "productive."

R. Kelly's sexual abuse trial set for September 2020

R. Kelly's sexual abuse trial set for September 2020

R. Kelly has been ordered to stand trial next September in one of his four sexual abuse cases, a Cook County judge announced on Wednesday.

It remains unclear which of the cases prosecutors will take to trial first.

R. KELLY'S LAWYERS CLAIM BIZARRE 'HARDSHIPS' IN JAIL

During the hearing in Chicago, Judge Lawrence Flood told prosecutors he wants to know by Jan. 22 which of the four separate indictments they plan to take to trial first.

The R&B singer's trial date has been set to Sept. 14, 2020.

At the federal level, the 52-year-old singer, who is being held without bond, is already scheduled to stand trial in April in Chicago and again in Brooklyn the following month.

Kelly was charged by Cook County prosecutors last March with sexually abusing three minor girls and one woman over a period of more than a decade.

Then in July, in federal court in Chicago, the R&B singer was indicted on charges of child pornography and obstruction of justice, with prosecutors accusing him of paying off potential witnesses in his 2008 trial – at which he was acquitted – to get them to change his story.

He was also indicted in New York on charges that include racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and the sexual exploitation of a child. Prosecutors alleged he and his employees picked out women and girls at concerts and groomed them for sexual abuse.
