Emily Blunt Talks About Cillian Murphy’s Strict Oppenheimer Diet!

For his part in Oppenheimer, Cillian Murphy had to go to great lengths. In fact, Emily Blunt, who played his on-screen wife Kitty Oppenheimer, said that the Inception actor had to change a lot to play J. Robert Oppenheimer, the man who invented the atomic bomb.

“He was taking on such a huge task,” she told Extra in an interview that came out on July 7. “And every day he could only eat, like, a nut. He looked so thin.” Murphy has said in the past that he had to stick to a strict diet for the part so that he could look like the scientist.

Murphy told the New York Times in May, “I love acting with my body, and Oppenheimer had a very unique body and shape that I wanted to get right.” “I had to lose a lot of weight, and we worked on the costume and tailoring. He was very thin, almost emaciated, and lived on martinis and cigarettes.”

But he said that he would not tell other people to do what they were doing. The Peaky Blinders actor told The Guardian in July, “You become a little bit competitive with yourself, which isn’t good.” “I don’t advise it.”

How much weight did he lose, though? Murphy decided not to give out a number and said, “Ah, no. “I don’t want it to say that Cillian lost x pounds for the role.”In addition to changing how he looked, the 47-year-old actor said that the fast pace of shooting helped him get into the role a lot more.

“It’s like you’re on this f–king train that’s just bombing,” he told the news source. “It’s bang, bang, bang, bang. After a few hours of sleep, you wake up and hit it again. I was running with a crazy amount of energy. I crossed a line where I didn’t care about food or anything else…But it was good because that was how the character was. He never ate.”
