Jamie Foxx, whose movie “Django Unchained” is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day is covering the December issue of Men’s Health magazine.

In his interview with the mag Foxx opens up about his secrets to success and staying in shape.  Check out some highlights below:

On taking his time after a hit: “It’s all waves. It’ll be good for a while, then things will mellow out. Then we’ll catch another wave. The Kingdom is another wave. You want to do it; you don’t want to overdo it. So lay back after a big thing. That’s the hardest part, letting someone else get it on. But then you come back with something that’s brand new and different.”

On his unlikely mentor, Paul Anka: “Paul Anka has a very interesting story. When he was 15 or 16, he was hanging out with the Rat Pack. He couldn’t get into the clubs, but he’d hang out in the kitchen and write songs for Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra. He wrote ‘My Way.’ He also wrote the theme song for Johnny Carson. Johnny said, ‘I have someone to write it.’ Paul said, ‘I’ll give you 50 percent of the publishing.’ And he got the gig. But Paul Anka said to me, ‘Jamie, I live life on my own terms.’ And you want to reach that point as quickly as you can. You want to be able to say, ‘I will go,’ not ‘I have to go.’ So that’s all you work for, man.”

On his fitness goal: “I just want to get my tight on. If someone grabs your arm in a club, you want to let ’em know you’re sturdy.”
