The 55-year-old funnyman told THR about one wild night he spent with a few famous comedian friends who tried to give him cocaine.
“Belushi and Robin Williams offered me some blow and I didn’t take it, and Belushi called me a ‘tightass,’” Murphy said. “Then, years later, I was like, ‘Wow, that’s a trip.’”
The actor said that his life would’ve been “totally different” had he accepted the drugs. (Belushi died in 1982 from acute cocaine and morphine intoxication.)
“There are a bunch of things like that that I look back on and be like, ‘Wow.’ And that just reaffirms my faith,” Murphy said. “I know that God is real. There’s been a bunch of times when I could have wound up crashing and burning.”
