He famously played an entire obese family in The Nutty Professor remake and its sequel, but in reality Eddie Murphy’s body is ripped raw! The comedian and movie star is in insane shape for a 57-year-old, and RadarOnline.com has learned it’s all thanks to his crazy intense work out regime. Check out Murphy’s buff look and how he keeps it tight in this RadarOnline.com gallery.
“Eddie looks decades younger than he actually is,” an insider told Radar.
He may be pushing 60, but the source said Murphy “puts in a lot of work so he can play a character in his early 40s.”
The Pluto Nash star does one-armed press-ups and flaunts a ripped six-pack that would put any 20-something hunk to shame.
“He's dieting, working out every single day, and looking pretty shredded on camera,” the insider added. “Tight abs and muscles bulging underneath his wardrobe.”
Murphy’s dedication to his health apparently kicked up a notch after the death of a close family member.
“He's always been a fitness nut but in the years since his brother Charlie died, that's all gone into overdrive.”
As Radar reported, Charlie, Eddie’s older brother, died in April 2017 after battling leukemia.
At the time, Charlie was 57…the same age Eddie is right now.
“It’s motivated him and spurred his focus on clean living,” the insider said. “Eddie is one of these guys who works only when he wants and he really does want to live past 100.”
