Eddie Murphy is dishing about leaving the movie business for good after the release of his latest film. “I have close to fifty movies and it’s like, why am I in the movies?” he said, adding, “I’ve done that part now. I’ll go back to the stage and do standup.”
Murphy, 47, said that while a “Beverly Hills Cop 4″ flick was in the works, he didn’t want to do it, because “the movie wasn’t ready to be done.” Murphy said he agreed to do “Cop 3″ because of the large fee he was offered. “They said this is how much we’re going to pay you. I said, ‘let’s go shoot it! I don’t care if the script ain’t right.” As for Eddie’s love life, the new bachelor [said] he is currently looking for a woman with “just honesty and some other things.”
Hmmm. Wonder if by “other things” he was referring to an adams apple and the old twig and berries?
Eddie’s most recent films have been sooo ass, he should’ve let that ship set sail years ago. The real question is: Sure, he may take the stage again, but can the brotha recover from years of doing wack ass kiddie movies ‘n’ shyte? Only time will tell…..
