What a difference eight years makes!

Jamie Foxx brought his daughter Corinne back to the Oscars on Sunday night – eight years after she appeared on the red carpet as a fresh-faced 11-year-old in 2005.

“Someone was asking me about being nervous about the Oscars. I said, ‘I’m not nervous anymore. I’m just excited to show how beautiful my daughter has turned out,’ ” Foxx said Sunday on the red carpet.

The Django Unchained actor, 45, said he had been talking Corinne, now 19, about college and relationships on their way over to the ceremony on Sunday. “Just catching up,” he said. “Talking about love.”

That’s a big difference from 2005 when Foxx won his Best Actor Oscar for Ray.

“She’s 11,” Foxx said of Corinne at those Oscars. “She said, ‘Dad, after this, can we go to the big awards?’ – which are the Nickelodeon Awards.”
