Eddie Murphy in Rolling Stone: “I’m quitting family movies” | In Case You Didn't Know
 

 
sorry if repost

‎"Murphy addresses reports that he stormed out of the Oscars after losing the best supporting actor award.
“What happened was after I lost, I’m just chilling, and I was sitting next to Beyoncé’s pops, and he leans over and grabs me and is like, [solemn voice] ‘There will be other times.’ And then you feel Spielberg on your shoulder going, ‘It’s all right, man.’ Then Clint Eastwood walks by: ‘Hey, guy...’ So I was like, ‘It’s not going to be this night!’ [Mimes getting up] I didn’t have sour grapes at all. That’s another reason I wanted to host the show – to show them that I’m down with it.”

Other highlights from the story:

Murphy says that his days of making family movies may be over. "I don't have any interest in that right now," he says. "There's really no blueprint, but I'm trying to do some edgy stuff. And I only want to do what I really want to do, otherwise I'm content to sit here and play my guitar all day. I always tell people now that I'm a semi-retired gentleman of leisure, and occasionally I'll go do some work to break the boredom up."

• Murphy has decided not to make Beverly Hills Cop IV. "They're not doing it," he says. "What I'm trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley's son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I'd do the pilot, show up here and there. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn't be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong."

• Unlike other Saturday Night Live alumni, Murphy has refused to participate in retrospectives and hasn't been on the show in years – but he's gotten over his grudge. "They were sh*tty to me on Saturday Night Live a couple of times after I'd left the show," he says. "They said some sh*tty things. There was that David Spade sketch [when Spade showed a picture of Murphy around the time of Vampire In Brooklyn and said, 'Look, children, a falling star']. I made a stink about it, it became part of the folklore. What really irritated me about it at the time was that it was a career shot.. I felt sh*tty about it for years, but now, I don't have none of that."

• Murphy hasn't performed stand-up since the late 1980s, but recently, he's given some thought to trying again. "If I ever get back onstage, I'm going to have a really great show for you all," he says. "An hour and a half of stand-up and about 40 minutes of my sh*tty band... But I haven't done it since I was 27, so why fu*k with it? But that's just weighing both sides. It comes up too much for me to not do it again. It's like, when it hits me, I'll do it, eventually."

• Murphy addresses reports that he stormed out of the Oscars after losing the best supporting actor award to Alan Arkin. "Alan Arkin's performance in Little Miss Sunshine is Oscar-worthy, it's a great performance. That's just the way the sh*t went. He's been gigging for years and years, the guy's in his seventies. I totally understood and was totally cool. I wasn't like, 'What the fu*k?' Afterward, people were like, "He's upset," and I'm like, "I wasn't upset!" What happened was after I lost, I'm just chilling, and I was sitting next to Beyoncé's pops, and he leans over and grabs me and is like, [solemn voice] 'There will be other times.' And then you feel Spielberg on your shoulder going, 'It's all right, man.' Then Clint Eastwood walks by: 'Hey, guy... ' So I was like, 'It's not going to be this night!' [Mimes getting up] I didn't have sour grapes at all. That's another reason I wanted to host the show – to show them that I'm down with it."

Eddie Murphy needs to stick to either family movies or being the edgy funny guy. I thought Norbit was funny but critics hated it because they were expecting wholesome Daddy Day Care Eddie. Instead he made an edgy black comedy.
