Jamie Foxx is making the most of fame and success, because he doesn't expect it to last.

The 36-year-old COLLATERAL star, who is poised to play Ray Charles in upcoming biopic RAY, is basking in the Hollywood limelight - but Foxx is already prepared to suffer the same career slump as actors like BURT REYNOLDS.

He says, "It's not going to last forever. I look at it like lions in the jungle. They rule maybe eight, maybe 11 years, if they're lucky. Then a young lion comes up.

"I look at Burt Reynolds, and I go, 'I loved Burt Reynolds - back in the day. What are you doing now? What's with the hair?'

"Eventually, we're all going to be Burt Reynolds."
