Cillian Murphy, known for his captivating portrayals in Peaky Blinders and Oppenheimer, has revealed his rather unique way of celebrating the completion of a film.

In a recent interview with People Magazine, Murphy shared his "post-filming ritual" for unwinding after the intense experience of portraying J. Robert Oppenheimer, the "father of the atomic bomb," in Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated biopic.

"I did eat a lot of cheese," Murphy confessed with a smile. He elaborated, emphasizing the importance of decompression after such a demanding role: "Cheese is a great decompression. Good cheese."

His co-star, Emily Blunt, who portrays Oppenheimer's wife Kitty in the film, added humorously, "Because he needed to decompress."

This unconventional approach to post-filming celebration has sparked amusement and intrigue online, with fans and social media users sharing their unique decompression methods.

While some might find Murphy's cheese indulgence unexpected, it serves as a reminder that even the most renowned actors have their rituals and methods for coping with the demands of their craft.

The revelation also adds a touch of humour and relatability to Murphy's persona, showcasing a human side behind the intense characters he portrays on screen.
