‘Annie’ stars Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis cover ‘Essence’


Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) and Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) win over hearts, including each other’s, in the magical remake of Annie. Featured in Essence magazine’s December cover story, “Gifted & Grateful,” the stars of the highly anticipated film talk about the fun they had working together, handling show business and how they each plan to spend the holiday season.

“I don’t think we could have done this movie unless Quvenzhané came along. It’s sort of like she’s tailor-made for the role in a sense. I would challenge you to find a girl who personifies ‘Annie’ better than Quvenzhané does.” -Jamie Foxx, Essence

The magazine’s December issue hits newsstands Friday, Nov. 7.  Annie arrives in theaters Dec. 19.
