Eddie Murphy: Divorce Helped Me Act

eddie-murphy-divorce-and-children.jpgEddie Murphy told Oprah Winfrey that his difficult divorce helped his performance in the upcoming movie “Dreamgirls.”

“It was real emotional,” Murphy said on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “So it was really good because I had all that going on and that’s going on under your skin; you get on the set and when you’re acting … (it took) me to a different place emotionally,” said Eddie Murphy.

Murphy’s divorce from his wife, Nicole, came up in the interview after Jamie Foxx complimented Murphy on how is able to instantly transform himself into the character of James “Thunder” Early, then revert to “this quiet, docile thing” when the cameras stopped rolling.

“I don’t want to make it seem like I was, you know, all Joe Actor …” Murphy said. “I was going through a big divorce, so between shots I was like, damn.”

Murphy’s wife filed for divorce last year, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple was married in 1993.

“Dreamgirls” is set for release December 25th.

I think Eddie Murphy needs to pray and ask god what to do

Always. Good things come out of what we think is a bad situation. Its Gods way of making way for better things to come into our lives.
