Florence Pugh, in a recent revelation during a panel discussion, shared an interesting behind-the-scenes moment from the filming of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer.
The Hollywood blockbuster, hailed as a masterpiece, has garnered significant attention, especially with its 13 nominations at the upcoming Academy Awards.
Discussing a particular sex scene with co-star Cillian Murphy, Pugh disclosed an unexpected challenge they faced on set. “In the middle of our sex scene, the camera broke. No one knows this, but it did. Our camera broke when we were both naked, and it was not ideal timing,” she revealed. In the confined set, the actors found themselves dealing with the situation humorously, with Pugh seizing the moment to learn about the technical glitch.
Pugh added, “Cillian and I are in this room together. It’s a closed set, so we’re both holding our bodies like this, I’m like, well, this is my moment to learn. ‘So tell me, what’s wrong with this camera?’ You just make your moments. I’m like, ‘What’s going on with the shutter here, buddy?’”
Despite the unexpected hiccup, Pugh praised the professionalism on set, highlighting Christopher Nolan’s keen eye for detail. “It was just crazy that every person on this set was so knowledgeable and was so ready to make this kind of a movie that there was no dull moment. It was all amazing. It felt like we were lucky to be there every second of the day,” she shared.
Oppenheimer, the film based on atomic bomb creator J. Robert Oppenheimer, has secured 13 Oscar nominations, making it a frontrunner in various categories. As the buzz around the movie continues, Pugh’s candid revelation adds a unique behind-the-scenes perspective to its acclaim.
