  アクセル・フォーリーで30分ぐらいのシットコムをやりたいとかだったのかな?

 それなりに面白く見られてしまったし、結構笑い転げまくったし、映画だと思わなければ別にシットコムスペシャルーな感じで楽しい仕上がりだった気もしなくもなく。

 

 遊園地での撮影に使ったのはParamount's Great Americaで、劇中のワンダーワールドはフィクションの存在なんだそうな。 一瞬「ソンビランド」のクライマックスで出てきた遊園地と同じなのかしらとか思いかけましたが。

 でもエディ・マーフィ、キャストとしての仕事はちゃんとこなしていたと思いますよ。

 それでも面白かったですし、かっこよかったですもん。

 後から読んだインタビューで、この映画を監督したジョン・ランディスと相当揉めたというか、ひどい目にあったみたいで。 この「ビバリーヒルズ・コップ 3」もどうやらその被害というか犠牲になったのかなと。 

  28歳の時のインタビューなのにすでに達観しているというか、自分に対してもすごく冷静な目で見ていて、「自分は俳優ではない」という自覚とか、何を求められているのかとか、なぜ世間に受けたのかということも冷静に分析していて。

 本物の俳優が演じることと自分が演じることとの違いとかもすごくわかりやすく的確に説明してくれていて、なるほどなぁって。

 エディ・マーフィ自身は同じことを繰り返すのは退屈なだけなので続編とかも自分だけの判断なら「よっぽど監督とか共演者ともう一度仕事がしたいとか思ったのでなければ」やりたくないし、それよりももっと新しいことをしたいというのが本音なのだけれども、パラマウントとの契約があるのでそうもいかないらしい。

 

 でも何よりもやっぱりエディ・マーフィも内に人種差別に対する激しい怒りを抱えていたんだなぁって。

 それを微塵も表には出さないようにしつつ、黒人のクリエーターやアーティストが平等にハリウッドで扱われるようになるよう、ゆるやかにでも変化をおこしていくことを常に考えている。

 「星の王子アメリカに行く」と「ハーレム・ナイト」もその試みで、この2本は「ビバリーヒルズ・コップ」や「48時間」の続編をやる代わりにパラマウント側が大目に見てくれたからできたことだとか。

  1988年時点でも有色人種が入ることのできないレストランやゴルフ倶楽部にあったとかって言うのも話していて。まだまだそんなに露骨だったんだと驚いたり。

 

 このインタビューは1990年で、その2年後にはロドニー・キング事件が起こるわけだから....。

 

インタビューで印象に残ったエディー・マーフィが言ったことの覚書

I’m a very normal person who just happens to be in show business.I have very normal thoughts. There’s nothing I’ve ever done that I’m ashamed of; there’s nothing that I regret doing. I’m also one of the straightest people I know. I don’t say “Fuck it!” very well. A lot of what I do is for the people who are in my life, and I don’t relax and I don’t sit back and enjoy the things that have happened to me. I’m always thinking about what I’m gonna do next.

 

I don’t think people are fascinated with me. I’m just a funny guy, and people enjoy my movies. I make them laugh. And that’s as far as it goes. This is the deal: A guy wants to see a movie with his girlfriend. He’ll say, “Let’s go see this horror movie.” And the girl will go, “No, let’s go see a Tom Cruise movie,” and the boyfriend doesn’t want to see that because Cruise is too handsome. So they settle on my movie. The girls go to see Cruise by themselves; the guys see the horror movies by themselves; but you go to my movie on a date. I’m not a threat; I make you laugh.

 

I don’t think I’m an actor. I’m a matinee idol. Even the term movie star sounds like I think I’m hot shit. Robert De Niro is an actor. Al Pacino is an actor.

  

I can act. Most movie stars can act, but there’s more artistry to being an actor than there is to being a matinee idol. The idol can show up with a good jawline and his charisma. An actor can move you, even though he looks like shit. Tell me or Tom Cruise, “Don’t smile for the whole picture,” then see what happens. That’s a test. Tell me not to raise my eyebrow. I got a couple of tricks I do to make it look like I’m acting.

 

Five years ago in Hollywood, all the studios were thinking, We gotta get us a nigger. We gotta get one. It was like a situation comedy. This is why it’s weird when a guy like Spike attacks me. He don’t realize that he’s around because of the “Let’s get us one, too” attitude. Spike is gonna be a great director one day. He has the potential. His problem is that because he’s so vocal, his stuff is now going to be under heavy scrutiny. When they go after that brother, they’ll have so much fucking ammunition that as soon as he does something that people think is bullshit, they’re gonna go crazy on him.

 

The thing people have to understand is that I’m aware of the power that I have as a filmmaker, as an actor and politically. But people seem to think that I’m operating without an agenda. But I have an agenda. I am also aware that change is something that has to happen gradually. Change is something that has to be done…quietly. It’s not about going in there and rocking the fucking boat. You can rock the boat, or you can sail smoothly to your next destination.

 

People see me on the screen and go, “You know, he seems like he’s a nice person, a fun person.” That’s one reason I got so much shit on my stand-up—I’m just average. Yet I’ve done these huge pictures. So I get shit for not being as good in my stand-up as I am in films, I guess. I don’t think I’m a bad stand-up comedian; it’s just one of the things that I do, and I’m not the best. But Raw was the biggest stand-up movie in history. So I don’t suck as a comedian.

 

My life has changed aesthetically. I have a bigger house and a nicer car, but ultimately, I still have a house and I still have a car. My life as an entertainer is the business part of my life, just like a doctor doesn’t stop living when he becomes a surgeon. He still goes home and has problems with his kids, his wife, his neighbor, this asshole down the street, when he goes to the store. You always have something to draw a funny situation from.

 

I felt strongly about his running for president, in terms of symbolism, but I knew that’s what it was. Even though he ran in 1988, there are still places in this country where a black can’t eat. I stayed at a house in Bel Air, in Los Angeles, and yet I couldn’t go onto the golf course right behind it. I’m supposed to be an upper-crust black person and I’m still subject to racism.

 

My dream is just to have black artists appreciated as much as white artists. I want us to be able to win Oscars, to do films about our people when we want to, to get films made, to do what we want to as artists.  

 

 I guess not being able to take care of my family. That means everybody in my family and my extended family. My biggest fear is not being able to be there for people who depend on me. Anything else I can deal with.

 

Ultimately, what we have to do is be accepted as equals, and I really, honestly don’t feel that white people accept black people as equals. Racism is covert now; they do it behind closed doors. In the open, everything is cool, but inside, it’s still “Ah, the fucking niggers.” It’s natural for white people to feel that way. White people used to own us, and they haven’t forgotten that yet. I know I haven’t forgotten it. I’m still angry about it. I wouldn’t be surprised if you had nights when you sat around and talked about niggers. All white people have, and do.

 

Yeah, but our anger is a reactive anger. We never stripped you of your culture or fucked your daughters.

 

Yeah, but I’m talking black-white. I’m talking what happened to blacks in this country. Jewish people came here of their own free will.

I sympathize with the victims of the Holocaust. It was a horrible thing. But not as horrible as what happened to black people. You’re talking about a people who were raped of their culture. You will never meet a Jewish person named Eddie Murphy. You will never meet a Jewish person named John Smith. Whites took our culture, they took our language, they took our religion. The Jews have overcome what happened in the Holocaust, outside of looking at the films and still being mad about it. As a people, they have power, they have culture, they have unity, they have money. But black people are still bruised by the horrible things that happened to them. I’m aware of it, and it makes me angry.

 

You watch those old civil rights movies that show black people getting sprayed down with water hoses. People lose sight of the fact that it was just twenty-five years ago, man. Sicking dogs on us just because we wanted to eat in a restaurant, or because we were marching and singing p“We Shall Overcome.” And a lot of those people who sprayed those water hoses are still alive, have children and have instilled the same beliefs in them.

 

My people are the most forgiving people on the face of the earth. To be here in this country and to be subjected to as much shit as we’ve been subjected to, and to not have had a black revolution!… All we want is to be accepted as your equals. We’re not even saying, “Hey, we want revenge; we gonna fuck you motherfuckers up.” We’re saying, “Hey, listen. That shit happened and we’re hurt; you fucked us over and you fucked up, but we’re here and treat us like your equals.” That’s what we’re saying. Racism is rooted in ignorance, and the more sophisticated a society becomes, the fewer racists we’ll have. When you integrate with other cultures, racism gets washed away.
