In a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Maya Rudoph relays a story about her first meeting with Murray, telling the host and audience about a backstage encounter at Saturday Night Live. Having never before spoken to Rudolph, Murray—without asking—picked her up, “slung me over his shoulder and carried me off like a fresh kill.”


Rudolph didn’t seem to mind too much, saying Murray “is a comedy dreamboat and a human dreamboat.” Kimmel and the audience didn’t seem to mind either, laughing along to the story uproariously. What we see is that Murray is hiding his worst characteristics in plain sight, and all of us only seem to want more.
