Actor and comedian Eddie Murphy said his days of making family movies may be over. “I don’t have any interest in that right now,” Murphy said in a recent Rolling Stone interview. “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.” Instead, Murphy has considered returning to his roots in stand-up comedy, which he hasn’t done since the late 1980s.
Murphy dispelled rumors that he is a recluse, arguing that he leaves his house, but chooses not to partake in Hollywood parties. Murphy also discussed next year’s Oscars, which he will be hosting. He dismissed the gossip that he resents Alan Arkin after losing “Best Supporting Actor” to him in 2006.
