But there is someone who can distract this uber-successful singer while she is being interviewed for her Grammy-nominated music. Who is it, you suppose? Well, it’s none other than the blue-eyed, Oscar nominated actor himself, Cillian Murphy.

“Cillian’s over there, guys… just saying. Sorry, I just got distracted, it’s all good.”

The Ocean Eyes singer admitted to being distracted by the ocean eyes of the Oppenheimer star. And can we really fault her for that? To be fair, anyone would be distracted in the presence of the brilliant talent, which is Cillian Murphy.
