Dark & Lovely spokeswoman/model Bria Murphy rocked a sexy photoshoot for Maxim Magazine where she revealed what it’s like when guys meet her famous dad, Eddie, and the advice her mom, Nicole, gave her about taking a fierce picture.

Bria, 21, gave a charming look into her life as the daughter of a beautiful model and world famous comic. She says guys are intimidated by her father, but he is a really laid back and fun man.

And when it comes to taking fierce photos, she got some motherly advice from her mom who told her to stand in front of the camera and imagine that she is the most beautiful woman in the world.


As the spokeswoman for Dark and Lovely, you fly around the world for all kinds of modeling gigs. So you lead a pretty busy life. What do you like to do for fun?

I love going to amusement parks and bike riding. I love to do things really quickly. Let’s just go do it, you know?

What amusement park do you usually go to?

Six Flags is my go-to park because it has big roller coasters. I love roller coasters.

When you’re a beautiful woman such as yourself, do you have to wait on line or do certain gates open for you?

I actually like waiting in line sometimes, but if my dad’s with me we can cut the line.

Eddie Murphy rides roller coasters?

He’s really selective about what rides he goes on, but he did almost everything with us when we went to the Harry Potter park at Universal in Florida.

Did people bother you guys for autographs, or did you disguise yourselves in wizard costumes or something?

No, we weren’t disguised. But I’ve seen it get hectic before, so we have to walk fast.

Is your dad a better comedian or singer?

Um, I think he’s great at both. I love his comedy, but his music is really great, too, so I love them both.

Do you want to follow in his comedy footsteps?

I’d like to do comedies and horror. I love scary movies. Whenever they come out, I’m the first one in line. I just saw “Insidious”. I was kicking at the screen I was so scared! I love something that’s gonna make me jump, that will freak me out. I like the whole nervousness you get.

You must have tons of dudes coming up to you at bars and hitting on you. What works and doesn’t work with you?

You should just introduce yourself. A lot of times guys are intimidated by girls, and they don’t come over at all. They just give you looks all night and then walk away—and you’re like, He was cute and he didn’t even come up to me. So just get the guts to say hello.

Is it intimidating for guys to meet your dad?

It can be kind of nerve-racking! My dad is really cool and laid-back, and, no, he doesn’t like his daughters having boyfriends. On the other hand, he has never been disrespectful or anything. He’s always been really nice to the guys.

Do they feel like, Oh, man, I gotta try to make Eddie Murphy laugh?

I think everybody wants to make my dad laugh. That’s everybody’s goal. I’ve seen them succeed a few times. Not all the time.

If you don’t mind our saying so, this is a pretty smoking-hot shoot. What were you thinking as the camera was snapping?

My mom always taught me to pretend I am the most beautiful woman on Earth and just completely evoke that when I’m on-camera. I pretend the camera is the hottest guy ever and I want him to know that I want him so bad.

Give us your important details.
