Shy superstar Cillian Murphy shuns the spotlight

SHY superstar Cillian Murphy shuns the spotlight and loves nothing more than having a quiet beer in his local pub.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ actor Murphy, from Cork, says he is happy to go unnoticed in public, adding: ”I would never to want to lose the ability to go to the pub.

”For me, it’s just about the work. If you behave like a celebrity you’ll be treated like one. I admire people like Matt Damon – he just continues to do brilliant work and that’s it. That’s the model I’d like to follow.

“I don’t see the point in going to other people’s premieres. Walking the red carpet is something I only endure under duress.”

But the 37-year-old actor admits he does sometimes behave like a starstruck fan when around top actors and rock stars.

Reveals Murphy: ”Until I was 20, I was in a band and wanted to be a musician, so I can be an excited fan around rock stars.

“But with other actors, you have to be professional and work with them. I’ve been in movies with Robert De Niro and felt a bit starstruck, but he was charming and encouraging so we got through it.”

    Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari were reportedly “horrified” when they were handed the clothes for their new show, the ’70s-era sitcom “American Woman.” It wasn’t the outfits that appalled them, costume designer Judy Gellman tells The Post, but the size they were in: 12. “Sizing was different then,” Gellman explains.
