As he continues to rise in his career, Murphy revealed he is not a big fan of the limelight or getting photographed by people. In a brutally honest interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the Sunshine film star spoke about different aspects of his acting career.

Speaking about fame, he said,

“Fame is like commuting. You have to commute to get to your destination. I think that’s the way the best people are: they’re not doing it for any other reason but love of the craft. They have the compulsion to make work, not to be famous or get attention.”

Cillian Murphy emphasized that he appreciates people praising his acting skills, especially Peaky Blinders fans. The Intermission star explained,

“I don’t really partake. I don’t go out. I’m just at home mostly, or with my friends, unless I have a film to promote. I don’t like being photographed by people. I find that offensive. If I was a woman, and it was a man photographing me…”

The actor added,

“I think it’s the Tommy Shelby thing. People expect this mysterious, swaggering… it’s just a character. I do feel people are a little bit underwhelmed. That’s fine, it means I’m doing my job. Peaky fans are amazing. But sometimes I feel a little sad that I can’t provide — like — that charisma and swagger. He couldn’t be further from me.” 

Cillian Murphy gained worldwide recognition and earned critical acclaim for his bold and brilliant portrayal of Tommy Shelby in the British crime drama television series Peaky Blinders.
