The 38-year-old 'Predator' actress Olivia Munn opened about important dating advice that she once got from Jamie Foxx. The star talked about the incident on 'Busy Tonight', hosted by Busy Phillips, on Tuesday.

Olivia told Phillips that she was at a party a few years ago with her then-boyfriend. She was visibly upset during the party, because of her relationship.

Munn was on the verge of leaving the party when Jamie Foxx stepped in and urged her to stay. The next day, the actress was surprised to receive a voicemail from Foxx with some great advice. Olivia narrated the incident saying, 'He left a voicemail and he said, 'Did you come out here to be somebody's girlfriend? No. Did you come out here to be somebody's wife? No. Did you come out here to just date this guy? No. Did you come out here to be an actress? Yes'."

Jamie went on to add, "Don't you ever, ever, let me see you cry about some guy ever again. Don't you ever let some other guy make you feel like that ever again."

DailyMail reported that Munn revealed the advice was something she needed and has remained with her ever since. She recounts, "It was so sweet and he was just so earnest. He was just like, 'I never want to see you let any man make you feel that small again'."  She also went on to add, "Every now and then it would pop into my head and of course sometimes I've kinda veered off, but when I think of that it brings me back to center." Munn also revealed on the show that she now considers Jamie a 'Big brother'.
