Eddie Murphy says he refused cocaine from Robin Williams and John Belushi.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter in a recent podcast, the 55-year-old said: "[John] Belushi and Robin Williams offered me some blow and I didn't take it."

Murphy, who claims Belushi called him a "tight-ass" for rejecting the drugs, used to hang out regularly with the hard-partying stars.

"Then, years later, I was like, 'Wow, that's a trip'," he added.

Williams, who battled cocaine and alcohol addiction, checked himself into rehab shortly before he committed suicide in 2014.

Belushi died of a fatal overdose in 1982.

Murphy also spoke to the publication about never winning an Oscar.

"They [the Academy] don't have a hand in what gets made, you know? They can't control it if nothing came in that black folks was in ... was Oscar-worthy. So it's not them.

"The studios gotta start making more stuff where black folks get quality stuff ... I've been making movies for 35 years and I've played everything from an old lady to a donkey, so I can't be on here talking about, 'They don't give us enough roles' and diversity."
