If you weren't already aware, people don't have to get married, buy houses or have children if they don't want to.

Jamie Foxx is one of those people who isn't bothered about getting hitched and has said the 'cookie cutter' lifestyle isn't for him.

Explaining his meaning, he told E!'s Daily Pop: "The 2.5 children, the wood panelling on the station wagon and the cottage, I didn't think that was for me."

He also believes that his relationships with daughters Corinne, 27, and Annalise, 12, are better because of his choices.

He added of his friends' unions: "A lot of those marriages ended up not doing well as the kids got older.

"Unfortunately, we saw the kids get fractured from their families.

"Us, we actually came together more.

"So I don't know what that is, I just know that it is different but it's a whole lot of love.

"The pressure of being married, I don't think we can have a conversation about it.

"They just love their daddy and I just keep moving."

He also revealed more about his family set up: "It was by design to have my whole family living with me, because I don't want them living away from my circumstance.

"I want them to see and share the things that I go through. There's a lot of hard work, there's a lot of disappointment, but there's a lot of things to celebrate."

While it might come in handy having everyone close together, one of Foxx's daughters might not think the same after he once tried to enlist Snoop Dogg to help intimidate her boyfriend.

Foxx said he asked the rapper to 'shake' the poor lad up when he came round to meet his daughter.

Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he said: "What happened was my daughter - didn't know that I had already ran a background check on her boyfriend - he comes to the crib, and Snoop happens to be there.

"And I said, 'Snoop, there he is, right there. Shake him up'. And, you know, Snoop walked over to my daughter's boyfriend and just said, 'Hey, what's up, cuz? We her uncles, you know what I'm saying? So act accordingly, homie'.

"But the underlying meaning was that I wanted the young man to understand that she's got people that really love her, so that if something does go wrong, Snoop is coming."
