Eddie Murphy has a lot of women in his life, but according to the legendary comedian, they are all one big happy family. HipHollywood caught up with Murphy, while promoting his new indie flick Mr. Church, and talked with him about being a new dad, and also how well his ex-wife Nicole Murphy, and daughters Bria, Shayne, Zola and Bella, get along with his new girlfriend and baby’s mother Paige Butcher.

“I do love my family and kids and love being around them, and I’m always there,” said Murphy. “And there is no people not getting along, and tripping. There’s none of that.”

The group recently was photographed looking happy as ever at the premiere of Bria’s new flick Amateur Night, and photographers even caught Eddie and Nicole cordially greeting each other with a kiss.

Murphy, who just welcomed his ninth child with Butcher, told us fatherhood has helped him grow as an actor, and even prepared him for his dramatic role in Mr. Church. “Just playing in one area of emotions, where you’re going for the laughs, or action movie stuff, that’s what I usually did,” explains Murphy. “This is a place that I usually don’t go.”

And it just may pay off. Critics are praising Murphy’s work in Mr. Church and saying it could nab him another Oscar nomination. In the film, Murphy plays a family cook who comes to care for a dying woman’s youngest daughter. The film is slated to hit theaters September 16th.


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
