With their new movie "Django Unchained" set to hit theaters on Christmas Day (December 25), Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington continued their promotions by covering the December 2012/January 2013 issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine.

Mr. Foxx suited up in Ozwald Boateng and Tom Ford, while his lovely 35-year-old co-star shined in Prada and Yves Saint Laurent for the Brian Bowen Smith shot front page.

A few highlights from Jamie and Kerry's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Los Angeles Confidential!

Jamie Foxx
On his chemistry with Kerry:
“Chemistry is so weird in this business because you cannot manufacture it."

On his first encounter with Kerry:
"I remember exactly when I first saw her. She was driving up in a little green Prius. 'Little Miss Do-Good. Keepin' the community clean,' and I'm thinking 'Here comes somebody!'"

On his career:
"But here's the thing about being a black entertainer, you cannot be mediocre. White comedians can walk up to the microphone and go 'Hey guys, where ya from?' With black comedians, you have to shoot a short film, you have to play your own music, there's dancing, there's smoke and then you rise up out of the stage."

Kerry Washington
On her chemistry with Jamie:
"What you see with Jamie and me comes from a whole lot of crying, a whole lot of sharing, a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears."
