Los Angeles: Actor Jamie Foxx feels Hollywood can`t ignore the harsh reality that violence in movies influences real life attacks.

"We cannot turn our back and say that violence in films or anything that we do doesn`t have a sort of influence, it does," quoted Foxx, 45, as saying.

The actor was among many celebrities who have come together for an ad demanding a plan against gun attacks following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in which a gunman killed 20 students, all six or seven years old, and six adults.
