Foxx Uses Oscar Win To Sell His Car And House

JAMIE FOXX is reaping the benefits of winning an Oscar - he can sell his property at internet auctions quicker.

The RAY star has made prompt sales of his Bentley and his Las Vegas, Nevada home since he picked up his Best Actor Academy Award in March (05), and he's stunned by how much more valuable the stuff of an Oscar winner is.

He explains, "I sold my 1996 Bentley drop-top on eBay for $150,000. I posted it as 'Oscar winner Jamie Foxx's Bentley,' and it sold like that.

"We were trying to sell my house in Vegas, so finally I said, 'Hey, you know what? Why don't we say Oscar winner Jamie Foxx?' (We) sold it like that.

"Eleven years ago it cost $325,000; we sold it for a million."
