Eddie Murphy Gets Real About Feeling Like He Was ‘Going To Die’ On The Beverly Hills Cop 4 Set


It’s been over three decades since audiences last saw Eddie Murphy play the wise-cracking detective Axel Foley. Of course, he’ll be reprising that role in the long-awaited fourth installment, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley. Murphy unsurprisingly had to get back into swing of things when it came to doing stunts for action sequences. Said moments are thrilling for audiences to watch but, as we know, they’re not always easy on the actors performing them. It sounds like Murphy had quite the experience working on the highly anticipated film, as he got real about feeling like he was “going to die” amid production.

The fan-favorite actor came clean about doing stunts in his 60s while speaking to ET following his news-making Cecil B. DeMille Award speech at the 80th Golden Globes. The Coming 2 America star mentioned that he was 21 when he did the original Beverly Hills Cop (which is considered to be one of the best Eddie Murphy’s films). Unsurprisingly, doing stunts at the age of 61 is a lot different from doing them at 21. Murphy explained to the news outlet just how rough the shoot got at points and recalled a conversation with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, during which Murphy brought up another iconic star:

It’s emotional because, like I said, I was 61, and I was doing action scenes. You’d see my heart beating through my chest. There were many times when I felt like I was going to die on the set. I know some actors get into doing that type of stunts and stuff. Before I did the movie I said to Jerry [Bruckheimer], ‘ Listen, I’m 61. Don’t ask me to do shit you wouldn’t ask Morgan Freeman to do.’
