Cillian Murphy Talks About His Dining Habits

Matt Damon’s claims about Cillian Murphy’s dining habits have gone viral on the internet. According to the Good Will Hunting star, Murphy is the worst dinner companion imaginable. During an interview with the 60 Minutes Interview, Cillian Murphy went on to explain himself with respect to his dining habits. He said-

“I’ve always been like that, I think. It’s because, to me, you have the time on set, which is a short enough time. You have 10 hours, maybe. And then the other part, if you’ve got a significant part, you’re having to keep your lines fresh. And then the other big thing for me is sleeping. I love sleeping and I need sleep.”

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer witnessed its theatrical release along with one of the biggest blockbusters of 2023, Barbie.

With the maximum number of nominations in the upcoming Oscars, Oppenheimer is bound to create records.
