Academy Award winning actor Jamie Foxx opened up about his love life to television icon Oprah Winfrey in an exclusive interview that will air this weekend.

Foxx will appear on the next episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" to promote his latest role as a slave turned bounty hunter in director Quentin Tarantino's latest film "Django Unchained." However, a teaser video posted on Winfrey's website indicated that the conversation will be personal and revealing since the host spends most of the clip asking Foxx detailed questions about his love life.

"Are you with multiple women lots of times, or are you privately with one woman at a time?" Winfrey asked in the clip.

Foxx seemed slightly embarrassed by the question as he replied, "Wow, this is crazy."

Winfrey also asked the actor, who won an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 film "Ray," about his longtime status as an unmarried bachelor.

"Let me ask you this: why have you not gotten married?" Winfrey asked Foxx.

The preview of Foxx's answer seemed to indicate that he has been unlucky in love in the past. He said in the video, "You get your heart broken one good time and, especially for a man, it's catastrophic."

"Django Unchained" has garnered lots of buzz for its straightforward depiction of slavery and racial tensions in the South. Foxx told The Los Angeles Times that the film has a visceral depiction of slavery that ranks among the best in cinema. He also believes the film will actually make a difference in the perception of slavery among American people.

"This is the truest depiction of slavery [on screen], in terms of how tough and brutal it was," Foxx said. "When you see the movie you'll automatically go back to the time and the way slaves were treated. It's really going to make people look at the time in a different way."

Foxx's interview with Winfrey airs on OWN on Sunday. Dec. 16.
