Jamie Foxx broke down while being interviewed on chat show INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO recently, when he was asked to talk about his late grandmother ESTELLE TALLY.

The 95-year-old matriarch died just 10 days before the COLLATERAL star taped the interview with American TV personality James Lipton.

Foxx sobbed, "(She was) the lady that made all the tools. She did her job."

Tally and her husband MARK adopted Jamie when he was a baby.

He added, "(My mother) wasn't really prepared or ready to take on that responsibility and the lady that adopted her also adopted me. My parents were Estelle Tally and Mark Tally."

Foxx's interview airs tonight (28NOV04).
