Cillian Murphy: Matt Damon is my model

Cillian Murphy "admires" Matt Damon.

The Irish actor keeps a low profile when it comes to his personal life. Having made a name for himself in hit films such as 28 Days Later and Inception Cillian is happy to be famous for his work rather than social activities.

"For me, it's just about the work. If you behave like a celebrity, you'll be treated like one," he told British magazine InStyle. "I admire people like Matt Damon - he just continues to do brilliant work and that's it. That's the model I'd like to follow."

Cillian has worked alongside the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Christian Bale. The 37-year-old actor still pinches himself sometimes when coming face to face with such iconic stars but ensures he puts on a calm front as to not make them feel uncomfortable.

"Until I was 20, I was in a band and wanted to be a musician, so I can be an excited fan around rock stars," he laughed. "But with other actors, you have to be professional and work with them. I've been in movies with Robert De Niro and felt a bit star-struck, but he was charming and encouraging so we got through the day."

One of Cillian's best features is his pale blue eyes. Fans around the world have dedicated blogs online to his piercing peepers and he finds it amusing how people are so interested in them.

"Wow. I haven't seen the blogs," he confessed. "It's not something I have any control over! I guess I can thank my parents. It never hurt Paul Newman or Steve McQueen right?"

This is weird and I'm saying this as a fan. First Benedict Cumberbatch proclaimed his admiration for Matt Damon a few months ago; now Cillian. LOL, go Matt, get those men crushing on ya!

Cillian Murphy starred in the film version of "The Walking Dead", before it was adapted to TV

He declined to reprise his role in the TV version, Guess he didn't want to be trapped in a long-term contract.

How are Matt and Cillian similar? They look very different and have very different careers and styles.

I used to visit one of those forums dedicated to his blue eyes. It was about eight years ago and he was saying the same thing about maintaining privacy and not acting like a celebrity. To his credit, he seems to have maintained it.

So why didn't Cillian Murphy want to do the TV version of Walking Dead?

What similarities do Cillian and Matt have?

by Anonymousreply 911/02/2013

The only similarities I notice with both Cillian and Matt is they're married non-showbiz women, they have kids, they have pretty blue eyes and cute butts.

Sorry, that's all I got, lol.
