Cillian Murphy Explains Why He's No Longer a Vegetarian After 15 Years

Cillian Murphy Explains Why He's No Longer a Vegetarian After 15 Years

Cillian Murphy looks so dapper in this photo shoot for Mr Porter.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actor had to share:

On why he is no longer vegetarian: “I was vegetarian for about 15 years. But it was never a moral decision. It was more that I was worried about getting mad cow disease. For the first series of Peaky Blinders, they were anxious that I shouldn’t look like a skinny Irish fella, and my trainer recommended meat.”

On fashion: “You can’t go wrong with navy. My taste is very much: a good pair of jeans, a good jacket, a good pair of shoes. Well-made things that fit. I’m not adventurous.”

On why he doesn’t want to play Batman: “I don’t think I’m the right physical specimen for Batman…playing the square-jawed hero or the nefarious villain doesn’t really interest me. Humanity falls somewhere in the middle.”

    I would love to see him play a Bond villain. I remember getting creeps when I saw him in Red Eye.

    <- I was without work for 6 months when my former Co-worker lastly recommended me to start freelancing at home… It was only after I gained $5000 in my initial month when I really believed I am able to do this for a living! At the moment I am joyful than ever… I work-from-home moreover I am my own boss now like I always wanted… I see quite a lot of unsatisfied people around me, working the same old boring job that is sucking the daily life out of all of them day-after-day… Each time I see anybody similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is how I started . ➤➤➤➤http://trimit.io/Wl

    what a prick. you can be a vegetarian and look buff. you don’t have to go kill animals and eat them. you can just go to the gym and eat vegan protein, they offer it everywhere and it works just as fine. all my protein is vegan and i’m gaining weight with it easily…

    “It was more that I was worried about getting mad cow disease.” Of course he was more worried about himself than the suffering animals – selfish human.
