Sir, Please Stop Photographing Cillian Murphy


Cillian Murphy, the Irish actor famous for his roles in Christopher Nolan’s movies and the BBC’s Peaky Blinders, has recently revealed that he finds being photographed offensive. In an interview with Rolling Stone UK, Murphy went on a tirade against fame, comparing it to a “fetish” and stating that having his picture taken without his consent is “f***ing offensive”.

Well, excuse us, Mr. Murphy, for thinking that you might be an interesting person to capture on camera. We didn’t realize that we were violating your personal space and making you feel like a “f***ing event”.

Murphy even had the audacity to compare his experience to that of women being photographed by men, as if his discomfort with having his picture taken is in any way comparable to the deep-rooted issues of gender inequality and harassment that women face every day. How noble of him to take up the mantle of feminist activism!

But Murphy wasn’t done with his self-righteous rant yet. He also opined on the nature of fame, declaring that the “best people” are those who are driven purely by a love of their craft and not by a desire for attention or recognition. How admirable of him to distinguish himself from those of us who are mere mortals, yearning for a taste of the limelight.

At the end of the day, it seems that Cillian Murphy is just another celebrity who can’t handle the realities of fame. But hey, Peaky Blinders was pretty cool!
