Actor Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis filmed a particularly violent scene from the upcoming ‘Annie’ movie in New York City today. Foxx slapped the 10-year-old actress around and repeatedly slammed her onto a padded mat as the cameras rolled.
But one take went horribly wrong when Foxx threw Quvenzhané to the mat and her head missed the mat and impacted with the concrete floor. Thankfully Quvenzhané is a pro and she wasn’t hurt. Annie is produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z, and directed by Will Gluck. The musical starring Cameron Diaz and Rose Byrne is scheduled for release in 2014.
I don’t condone violence against children — even in the movies. Maybe this is why Willow Smith backed out of the role?
