From Huffington Post:
Despite what you may have heard, Eddie Murphy is not an angry man. At least not anymore.
The star of the upcoming “Tower Heist” and the host of next year’s Oscars, Murphy’s career is back on the upswing after a decade spent mostly doing voice work for animations. He was once edgiest comedy star on screen, owning the entertainment world in the mid-to-late 80s. That massive success all came thanks to his brilliant turn on “Saturday Night Live,” which he left mid-season in 1984. A decade later, he had a falling out with the show when David Spade called him “a fading star” and mocked his “Vampire In Brooklyn” on live TV, but as he tells Rolling Stone in their new cover story, he’s moved past the drama.
“They said some sh*tty things. There was that David Spade sketch, I made a stink about it, it became part of the folklore,” Murphy says. “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.”
