Cillian Murphy’s eyes are more famous than he is. He must envy them. The rest of him is pretty well known too, but his eyes have inspired whole websites, Facebook fan pages and amateur YouTube montages. A Tumblr page succinctly called Fuck Yeah, Cillian Murphy’s Eyes consists of pages and pages of photographs of the actor, looking up, down, left, right, blinking, winking, staring, gazing – you name it. There are discussions as to exactly what shade of blue they are. “The colour of the sea on a bright summer’s day”? Or, “The bluest blue of all the very blue blues”?
Frequent collaborator Christopher Nolan is another fan. Talking about casting him in Batman Begins, Nolan said, “He has the most extraordinary eyes, and I kept trying to invent excuses for him to take his glasses off in close-ups.”
Sometimes I think people expect me and my best guy friend to start dating. They see us as two really close people of opposite gender and assume that there is some hidden romance. Maybe some think this because of how much I hate his girlfriend and how much I want them to break up. There was a short period where I thought he was cute and vice versa But nothing ever did or will come of that. I can’t say he has been friend-zoned but family-zoned. His is like the brother I never had.
