Cillian Murphy has a love-hate relationship with celebrity, becoming enraged when he is photographed on the streets.
In an interview with Rolling Stone UK, Irish actor remarked, “It can ruin experiences because it fetishises everything,” adding, “You can be walking down the street and someone takes a picture like this is a ****** event.”
“I don’t like being photographed by people,” the Batman Begins star remarked. I find that offensive. If I were a woman and a male was filming me.”
“You have to commute to get to your destination,” the Inceptions star added, comparing popularity to commuting.
I believe that’s how the best individuals are: they’re not doing it for anything other than the love of the trade. They feel compelled to create something, not to be famous or to attract attention.”
The 46 year old added, “fame evaporates with regularity. I’m around here all the time and no one gives a ****** *****. Nobody cares. I go to the shop. It dissipates. But if… one of the guys from Succession walked in here, I’d be all intimidated and shaky. When you’re confronted with someone you’ve invested a lot in, or you think is amazing, the encounter is strange.”
