Speaking on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Thursday (05.12.19), he said of how many kids he’s had: “Men kind of look at me like, ‘He’s crazy. How much did that sht cost?’ And women, it’s kind of like, something sexy about it, I think. [They think] ‘Eddie Murphy must be doing his thing. Eddie Murphy be getting it in.”
Eddie was, at the height of his career, one of the most sought-after stars in Hollywood, previously: “I still am in the semi-retired state. For maybe five or six years, I was on the couch, just doing nothing, and not planning and not trying to get anything. I had things in development, but I just was doing nothing.”
Despite not working, Eddie didn’t feel a strong urge to return to a movie set.
However, Eddie is still open to movie offers – provided the right opportunities present themselves.
He said: “I don’t want to say I’m retired like I won’t do anything. If some great thing comes along, or if some great thing happens, some great director or some great idea, of course, I’ll make other movies. Once I get my stand-up muscle back together, I’ll always do stand-up. I’ll always have this thing to go do, but I’m never going to be doing it like I used to be all the time.”
