'Scandal' Star Kerry Washington: 'Jamie Foxx Is A Good Soul'

During the course of her career, actress Kerry Washington has played the wife of Oscar®-winner Jamie Foxx in two films -- "Ray" and Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Django Unchained."

In this "Oprah's Next Chapter" clip, Oprah asks Kerry, "Do you think [Jamie Foxx] would make a good husband in real life? Not necessarily for you..."

Kerry says, "Yeah, not for me... He's a great movie husband for me. But in real-life... I do [think he would be a good husband]! Jamie's a good soul."

"What was like working with him?" asks Oprah.

"I could not have done [that film] without Jamie," says Kerry. "This character required me to go places that were unimaginable. And it really pushed me to the edge of my sanity... And if I didn't have Jamie -- somebody who I so love and respect and admire -- as my partner, I couldn't have done it."

"Oprah's Next Chapter" with Jamie Foxx airs Sunday, Dec. 16 at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.
