Cillian Murphy opened up about how much he loves the work he does and addressed his passion for acting.

In an exclusive interview to GQ for their cover story, the Oppenheimer actor told the outlet that people always used to call him “a difficult interviewee.”

He clarified that he does not dislike the press rather the monotony that is associated with them, “People always used to say to me, ‘He has reservations,’ or ‘He’s a difficult interviewee.’ Not really.”

“I love talking about work, about art. What I struggle with — and find unnecessary — and unhelpful about what I want to do, is: ‘Tell me about yourself…’” he further added.

The Peaky Blinders star also explained why he won’t take photos with fans on the street anymore as he learned to set public boundaries, as a celebrity. “Once I started [saying no],” he said.

Further stating how he preaches his friends to do the same, he revealed, “It changed my life. I just think it’s better to say hello and have a little conversation. I tell that to a lot of people, you know, actor friends of mine, and they’re just like: I feel so bad.”

But you don’t need a photo record of everywhere you’ve been in a day,” Murphy added, reflecting on social media and paparazzi coverage.

“It’s like Joanne Woodward said, ‘Acting is like sex — do it, don’t talk about it,’” he noted.

Murphy also opened up that he dislikes watching himself on screens, saying, “Many of my films I haven’t seen. I know that Johnny Depp would always say that, but it’s actually true. Generally, the ones I haven’t seen are the ones I hear are not good.”

This conversation with Cillian Murphy stemmed when he pointed  out the Hollywood industry to GQ, regarding its press tours as a broken model and suggested its re-invention.
