Jamie Foxx has recalled a wild trip to Australia with Leonardo DiCaprio and a group of their friends, back in 2012. 

In an extract from the actor’s biography, Act Like You Got Some Sense, shared by Stellar Magazine, Jamie reveals he hoped to celebrate New Year’s Eve twice – once in Australia and again in Las Vegas when he returned. 

To make the flight, Jamie, 53, booked a double decker plane, but left his friends partying upstairs while he stayed downstairs with his daughter, Annalise Bishop, who was four at the time, and her mother, his ex-girlfriend, Kristin Grannis.

As the party raged through the whole flight, Leo, Jonah Hill, Nas, the Fugees and nightclub owner Jason Strauss, who all came along, begged Jamie to join in. 

‘When party Jamie and family Jamie met face-to-face, it was clear who was gonna win. Family Jamie every time,’ he wrote. 

‘I could hear the club music pounding upstairs, boom boom boom, while I was sitting next to Anelise watching The Little Mermaid.’

‘Right on cue, a gorgeous boat came drifting by. The scene onboard looked crazy, like somebody had transported a Hollywood Hills mansion on to the water: multiple hot tubs, a pool, tonnes of food,’ Jamie recalled. 

‘My eyes bulged. I spotted Leo, waving at me. I gotta admit, I was a little jealous,’ he went on.
