News Showbiz: Cillian Murphy thinks fans are ‘crazy’ loving his Peaky Blinders haircut


PEAKY Blinders star Cillian Murphy isn’t a fan of the signature haircut his character sports on the hit series.

The actor, who has played the role of Tommy Shelby since 2013, thinks it’s “crazy” that people like the style.

He told Shortlist Magazine: “But people like the undercut stuff; people go to the hairdresser and ask for a “sharp cut”.

“It’s crazy that people like it, it hasn’t pushed me for four years now. I normally keep my hair long.

He added that the style was originally introduced to stop the spread of hair lice.

“But they realize the turtleneck people in Hackney with this haircut, do they realize it was styled that way to avoid lice?” Tell them they have their lice cut off, see what they say then, ”he said.

Murphy’s last role is in Christopher Nolan’s war thriller Dunkirk.

Despite the film’s expected success, the 41-year-old admits he will only watch it once.

“I’ll see it once,” he said, adding, “I don’t know anyone who looks into their work because the impetus is always this – the next piece I do will be the best I do. . For an actor, nostalgia is death. ”

BBC chief Tony Hall has warned the pay comparison “isn’t straightforward” as the broadcaster prepares to publish the salaries of stars earning more than £ 150,000 – two-thirds of whom are men.

Only a third of the list of talent earning over £ 150,000 are women.

The salaries of Match Of The Day presenter Gary Lineker, talk show host Graham Norton, and Antiques Roadshow news anchor and presenter Fiona Bruce are expected to be disclosed.

Leading journalists such as Andrew Marr, John Humphrys and political editor Laura Kuenssberg are also expected to be on the list.

BOYZONE has teamed up with Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith to help them put together their 25th anniversary album.

The boy group’s record will be released before the start of next year and may contain tracks written by both singer-songwriters, according to Shane Lynch.

He told The Sun: “We have put together a number of leads. We are not yet finished, we are still harvesting. We have one track from Ed and one from Sam.
