Eddie Murphy Says No To Drugs (Especially With Robin Williams And John Belushi)

Premiere Of Cinedigm's "Amateur Night"

Eddie Murphy might not do a ton of interviews, but when he does, they get REAL.

While promoting his upcoming indie drama Mr. Church, the 55-year-old made his first-ever podcast appearance for The Hollywood Reporter‘s “Awards Chatter,” and he opened up about a lot of stuff: from refusing drugs from Robin Williams and John Belushi, to not owning a computer! AMAZING.

Reflecting upon his interactions with Robin and John, the Beverly Hills Cop star remembered:

“[John] Belushi and Robin Williams offered me some blow and I didn’t take it, and Belushi called me a ‘tightass.’ Then, years later, I was like, ‘Wow, that’s a trip.’ I don’t drink. I don’t have like this moral thing about it, I just don’t do it — and I didn’t get high.”

And then, there’s Murphy’s odd relationship with technology, and his Oscar ambitions:

On not owning a computer: “I used to be the hippest of them all. I used to know everything about everything. I used to read about everything that was going on and I knew everybody’s name and anybody in pop culture. Anything that was written about me I would read. And for the last maybe 20 years—I haven’t read a newspaper in 20 years, or read a corporate magazine. If there’s an article about me, someone has to read through it before they even give it to me. I don’t want to see anything that has anything negative. I don’t want to read any of that sh*t. So, I don’t know what y’all think. I don’t have a computer, I don’t have email—I don’t have any of that sh*t.”

On winning an Oscar: “Eventually they’re gonna have to give me that sh*t. I already did 35 years in movies. Eventually y’all gonna have to give me something. And if y’all wait ’til I’m 85, 90, I’m gonna come out a 90-year-old dude, in a sky-blue tuxedo—there’s a reason why it’s sky blue—and I’m gonna walk out and when they give me the award and they hand it to me, I’m just gonna stand there and urinate on myself in front of the world—the whole world—and just stand there. And then they’re gonna have to play that music and then they’ll have to usher me off. That’s gonna be my moment. Don’t make me wait!”

On doing stand up again: “I stopped doing stand-up because it stopped being fun. And the reason it stopped being fun was it was harder to write…new stuff. It had gotten so crazy. ‘Maybe I’ll take a little break from standup.’ And then the break just got longer. The whole comedy scene just turned into this big other thing. For years I’ve been procrastinating about it, going, ‘I’ll do stand-up again,'” he says. “And all of a sudden I’m this far away from it.”

Love these interview questions and remarks, but also- man, it all feels so DATED.  Also, Murphy must have a REALLY odd outlook on current events, LOL. READ A NEWSPAPER, DUDE!

Eddie Murphy Is A Dad (Again)

Eddie Murphy is expecting his NINTH kid!

9 times a charm!

Eddie Murphy was made a dad for the 9th time, after welcoming a baby girl on Tuesday. Is there such a thing as a punch card for hospitals?

His newest daughter, Izzy Oona Murphy, arrived weighing 7 lbs., 15 oz., and measured 19½ inches long, is the actor and comedian’s first child with longtime girlfriend Paige Butcher. And yes, her first name is just “Izzy.” Like the soda.

“Both mother and daughter are doing well,” according to a statement made by Murphy’s reps. The two confirmed a baby was on the way in November and I’m sure their other kids (are you ready…5, 4,3,2,1…) Eric, 26, Christian, 25, Bria, 25, Myles, 22, Shayne, 21, Zola, 15, and Bella, 13, Angel, (with Melanie Brown) all gave each other high fives. Or something like that?

Eddie Murphy is expecting his NINTH kid!

Eddie Murphy is expecting his NINTH kid!

Comedian and actor Eddie Murphy isn’t messing around when it comes to creating his own little football team of Murphys.

The Australian model is carrying Murphy’s ninth child – and this marks her first baby! Congratulations are in order for both of them!

Paige makes Eddie’s fifth baby’s mother – holy smokes! Can you imagine having nine children by five different women? Imagine the child support involved…. Insane… But at least he looks happy…

In 2013, Paige opened up to Vanity Fair about her relationship, but kept the information to a minimum. She told the publication: “I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there.”

She added, “I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now.”

I guess now that she’s pregnant with Eddie’s baby, she has that much more reason to stay off of social media.

Eddie Murphy makes Bill Cosby jokes, hilarity ensues

Eddie Murphy makes Bill Cosby jokes, hilarity ensues

Despite saying that he didn’t want to do any Bill Cosby jokes because he didn’t want to kick a man when he’s down, Eddie Murphy has brought back his Cosby impression.

Murphy was on hand at the Kennedy Center on Sunday night where he received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. In the past, he declined doing a bit of Cosby humor at the “Saturday Night Live” tribute, saying, “There’s nothing funny about it. If you get up there and you crack jokes about him, you’re just hurting people.”

When he took the stage to receive his award, Murphy joked, “Bill has one of these. Did you all make him give it back?”

It’s an obvious reference to all of the universities who have revoked their honorary degrees of which they’ve bestowed upon Cosby.

Huffington Post reports:

Murphy then morphed into Cosby’s sing-songy lilt, saying, “I would like to talk to some of the people who feel that I should give back some of my motherf**king trophies.” Continuing in his best “Pudding Pop” voice, a callback to his Cosby impression from his famous 1987 stand-up film “Raw,” Murphy reportedly said, “You may have heard recently that I allegedly put the pill in the people’s stomach … If I ever see or meet this Hannibal Buress in person, I am going to try and kill this man!”

The entire event airs on PBS on November 23rd.
