Washington, January 7 (ANI): Jamie Foxx has reportedly shelled between 15,000 and 20,000 dollars to rent a Washington house for 6 days.

The Academy Award-winning actor was said to have spent the staggering amount to base himself in the state from January 16-21 for U.S. President-elect Barack Obama’’s inauguration ceremony.

The stand-up comedian, whose new CD, Intuition, is amongst the top 10 for the third week, had reportedly contributed 50,000 dollars to the inauguration, reports FoxNews.

Other celebrities such as Halle Berry, Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Sharon Stone also donated the same amount in a bid to make the ceremony a big event.

The Congressional Inaugural Committee warned of crush-level inaugural crowds on January 20 - the day that will see US swearing in its first African-American president. (ANI)
