January 11, (THEWILL) – Veteran comic actor, Eddie Murphy, has advised up-and-coming comedians to keep Jada Pinkett Smith’s name out of their mouths if they want to succeed.
Will Smith had physically assaulted Chris Rock, at the 2022 Oscars after he made a joke about his wife, Pinkett Smith’s bald head.
While accepting the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lifetime achievement award, at the Golden Globes on Tuesday night, Murphy gave out three pieces of advice to comedians.
“I’m gonna wrap it up and say something to all the up-and-coming dreamers and artistes that are in the room tonight.
“I want to let you know that there is a definitive blueprint that you can follow to achieve success, prosperity, longevity, and peace of mind. There’s a blueprint, and I followed it for my whole career.
“It’s very simple. You just do these three things. Pay your taxes. Mind your business. And keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out of your fucking mouth!”
