Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx, who was born Eric Marlon Bishop, was adopted shortly after his birth on Dec. 13, 1967, in Terrell, Texas. He was raised by his mother’s adoptive parents, Esther Marie (Nelson), a domestic worker and nursery operator, and Mark Talley, a yard worker. The entertainer reportedly had little contact with his birth mother, Louise Annette Talley Dixon, who was not a part of his upbringing.
