The upcoming film “Oppenheimer” has been creating quite a buzz, and one of the reasons is the inclusion of a few brief sex scenes between the stars Cillian Murphy and Florence Pugh.
In the movie, Cilian Murphy takes on the role of J. Robert Oppenheimer, often referred to as the “father of the atomic bomb.” He engages in an affair with Jean Tatlock, portrayed by Pugh.
In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, Murphy shed light on the purpose behind these intimate scenes, stating that director Christopher Nolan deliberately included them for a specific reason, not for mere “gratuitous” elements.
Nolan knew that these scenes would contribute to the film’s rating, and Murphy emphasized that they serve a powerful narrative purpose. He commended Pugh’s exceptional performance, describing her portrayal as nothing short of amazing.
The Irish-born actor continued to praise Florence Pugh’s talent and her remarkable career, which has garnered acclaim since her breakout role in “Lady Macbeth.”
“I have loved Florence’s work since ‘Lady Macbeth,’ and I think she’s f–king phenomenal,” he expressed. “She has this presence as a person and on screen that is staggering. The impact she has [in ‘Oppenheimer’] for the size of the role, it’s quite devastating.”
Before the movie’s release, Murphy had the opportunity to discuss the star-studded cast with Fox News Digital, which includes renowned actors such as Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, and Robert Downey Jr.
He couldn’t help but praise his co-stars, acknowledging their brilliance as actors and also as remarkable individuals. He shared a special connection with Emily Blunt, having worked with her previously on “A Quiet Place 2,” where they portrayed husband and wife.
Reflecting on his time working with Pugh, he expressed admiration for her talent and the joy he experienced while collaborating with her on set.
As “Oppenheimer” draws near, fans are eagerly anticipating the powerful performances from this talented cast, along with the thought-provoking narrative that delves into the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer and his pivotal role in shaping history. With such an impressive ensemble and a compelling storyline, the film is poised to make a profound impact on audiences worldwide.
