    In her latest interview with Extra, Emily Blunt said that Cillian Murphy had to follow a strict diet to change himself to J. Robert Oppenheimer, the central character of ‘Oppenheimer.’

    Blunt stated, “He had such a monumental understanding. And he could only eat, like, an almond every day. He was so emaciated.” In another interview, Cillian Murphy addressed his weight loss for the character and said: “I love acting with my body, and Oppenheimer had a very distinct physicality and silhouette, which I wanted to get right.”

    Murphy said at the time that he lost a lot of weight and added that his dieting schedule is not safe for anyone and should not be followed at the same time.
