TMZ caught up with Damon Wayans and talked about the actor’s fondest memories of the late Charlie Murphy. Unless you’re living under a rock, news of Murphy’s tragic death spread like wildfire yesterday. He passed at 57 years old after quietly battling leukemia and undergoing chemotherapy.
Damon starts out with: “Loved Charlie Murphy.” Then, in a lighthearted twist, he adds: “We kissed once. It was wonderful.” According to the comedian, Murphy was really “thrilled” about the “neck kiss,” too.
TMZ writes: “Sounds like they were running through lines for Eddie Murphy’s Vampire in Brooklyn — you know, ’cause of the neck ‘kiss’ — but it sure left an impression on Damon. He’s happy to reenact it, too.”
