Cillian Murphy has opened up about starving himself for his latest film role.

The actor stars in The Heart of the Sea which tells the story of the Essex whaling ship that inspired the novel Moby Dick.

The ship is destroyed by a whale leaving its crew shipwrecked for 90 days.

he Cork native explained that he had a new found respect for the people who survived the real ordeal.

“These people actually lived through this and we were complaining like moany actors saying, ‘oh, I’m so hungry’ – but these guys did it for real, so it does bring it home,” he told the Irish Examiner.

Co-star Benjamin Walker said the crash diets were a tribute to the sailors who lost their lives on the voyage.

“I’m never doing a crash diet again. It was absolutely excruciating, but it was least we could do to represent these guys who actually suffered – and many of whom didn’t survive,” he said.


Cillian Murphy cracks up when I hand him a reeking, hexagonal gift from his native Ireland—a small piece of cheese, as olfactorily challenging as it is oleaginous—called St. Killian (pronounced just like his name).

“I fucking love cheese,” he says, delightedly. “Especially when it’s got my name on it. I’ll be eating this tonight with some nice red wine.”

I’ve traveled from Ireland to interview the actor in London, where we meet in a rented townhouse. It’s no wonder he’s got food and drink on the brain, considering the starvation diet he underwent as shipwrecked sailor Matthew Joy in Ron Howard’s whaling epic, In the Heart of the Sea, based on the true story that inspired Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.

It’s a remarkable transformation for Murphy, 39, who has lent those perilously etched cheekbones and fiendishly intense eyes to such roles as the psychopathic Scarecrow in the Dark Knight franchise, a murderous creep in Red Eye, and, most recently, vicious gangster Tommy Shelby in the binge-worthy Netflix crime drama Peaky Blinders.

“The sensation of going to bed hungry is not pleasant,” he says, eyeing that round of cheese. “I would like to have to get porky for a movie. Not obese, just prosperously rotund.”
