Favorite Quotes from Cillian Murphy 

“Sociopath is a word that has sort of becoming shorthand for a psychopath and there’s a distinct difference, it’s interesting if you look it up. Sociopath if you look at the medical definition, the profile of a sociopath is that they are supremely intelligent people that are also pathological liars, they have no moral structure and there is one more, they have no compassion or empathy for other people.” – Cillian Murphy

“For me, it’s about being at home and living a life. Taking the dog for a walk, doing the shopping, emptying the dishwasher, going for a run.” – Cillian Murphy

“I try not to think retrospectively. It’s important, as an artist, to look forward, always. I do try to take work that involves some challenge. If you approach a piece of work and you’re going, “Yeah, yeah, I can do that,” then that’s kind of a red flag.” – Cillian Murphy

“There’s a lot of comedy in Intermission but it’s got this depth. It’s not comedy for comedy’s sake – it’s informed by something else. I like stuff like that.” – Cillian Murphy

2. 42 isn’t the Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything… but Beck Might Be

Cillian Murphy: I love Beck. I was reintroduced to his song Debra, my favorite from Midnite Vultures, recently when I was watching Baby Driver, that brilliant Edgar Wright film. It’s a sensationally soundtracked film.
