Foxx, who won the Os­car Award for “Ray” in 2004, vis­ited Maduro in the pres­i­den­tial palace in Cara­cas. State me­dia said Foxx was there to sup­port the coun­try’s so­cial­ist rev­o­lu­tion and at­tend the sign­ing of an agree­ment be­tween Venezuela and its al­lies for the con­struc­tion of houses for the poor.

Foxx posed for pho­tos with the deeply-un­pop­u­lar pres­i­dent of the eco­nom­i­cally em­bat­tled South Amer­i­can coun­try.
