Jamie Foxx told Politico this weekend that though he plays the president in "White House Down," out next week, he has no interest in the "polarizing" world of real-life politics.

“You can't get anything done, so I would rather be on the outside,” he said at the film's D.C. premiere.

“I would be taking a whole lot of vacations and there would be a whole lot of afterparties,” he added.

Foxx's co-star, Channing Tatum, also said he prefers make-believe.

“Everybody just spins everybody else's words and it's frustrating,” Tatum said.

Foxx may not be heading for the White House in real life, but he did share his stunning view of the historic building on his visit to the nation's capital.
