Jamie Foxx Applauds Daughter Corinne's New Endometriosis Documentary

Jamie Foxx is one proud father. The Oscar-winning actor took to Instagram to celebrate his eldest daughter, Corinne, whose new documentary premiered this past weekend.

Corinne’s film, Below the Belt, follows several women battling endometriosis, a reproductive health condition in which tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus. Symptoms of endo, as it is often shortened, range from excruciatingly painful menstrual periods, to pain or discomfort during sex, to issues with fertility.

“So proud of my daughter @corinnefoxx please check out the documentary movie Below The Belt… you will be blown away by the courage the women possess in this film,” Jamie captioned his post.

Corinne has endometriosis herself, which was one reason why she wanted to highlight the condition in her documentary. Earlier this week, the 28-year-old actress and filmmaker uploaded a poignant video to Instagram depicting her endo journey, from her in a hospital gown for her first surgery for “a disease [she] had barely heard of” in 2018, to her walking the red carpet at Below the Belt’s premiere.

“[This is] a full circle moment for me,” she wrote.

Endometriosis affects an estimated 2–10% of American women ages 25–40, so it is fairly common. However, the condition is often misdiagnosed as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or ovarian cysts, which present with similar symptoms. Sometimes, endo symptoms are even dismissed by medical providers as rough periods.
