Mirror Mirror On The Wall: Who’s The Prettiest Cillian Murphy of Them All

Click this button to seemore post on Monthly Murphy

This April edition of Monthly Murphy comes with a poll.

If you aren’t a big fan of Cillian Murphy, you probably didn’t know that he has done 3 cross-dressing characters … well, 2,5 to be exact.

I was wondering which one is his prettiest character.

I hope, even though you are not a fan, you will also cast your vote. I include some pictures for you to judge 😉

First, I will introduce you to the ‘man’ behind these pretty faces.

The picture on the right is Cillian Murphy, an extremely handsome MAN with very gorgeous eyes. He is STRAIGHT!! I know some people who don’t know him much think that he is gay…but he is not gay!! I am sure he is 100% straight. He is married to Yvonne McGuiness and has 2 cute sons.

He loves playing unique characters and that’s why he had done 2 transvestites and 1 man who doesn’t mind to dress in woman suit for his job. I will not talk about the movie, for that you can just click on the movie title which will lead to my review on the movie (I haven’t reviewed Sunburn yet)

So…here are the contestants:

1.       Davin Mc Derby in Sunburn

Davin is not a transvestite. In this movie, Davin worked in a bar. The bar has a ladies night, and during that night the owner asked his employees to dress in woman clothes.

This character is the one I mentioned as 0,5 because he  didn’t exactly play  as a ‘woman’, but he still looked pretty for this role 😉

2.       Patricia ’Kitten’ Braden in Breakfast on Pluto

When I first saw this movie, I was blown away! He is more woman than I have ever been.

Kitten is very beautiful, feminine, easy going and kind heart. There was a scene where his skirt was blown by wind and wow…his leg made me envy. Cillian doesn’t refer Kitten as him, he refers to his character as her because she is not a man who pretends to be a woman, she is more like a woman trapped in a man’s body.

Kitten dresses in glamour style but far from being arrogant.

Look at how pretty she is:

3.       Emma Skillpa in Peacock

Emma Skillpa might be a bit twisted in the head, but she sure is pretty.

Emma, although dress in old fashion way, portrays an elegant and secretive woman. She is the kind of woman who lives next door and nice to talk to. She is like an older sister to whom we can share our problems with. A very motherly character.

Here are some pictures of the beautiful Emma.

I have given a bit description of each character, personalities behind those pretty faces.

I have hard time choosing between Kitten and Emma. Both are interesting characters and very pretty. But… my vote for the prettiest Cillian Murphy falls on PATRICIA ‘KITTEN’ BRADEN.

Now, it’s your turn to vote 😉

    I think he was prettiest in Breakfast on Pluto, but he looked way more natural in Peacock…

    1. Novroz says:

      I really his character in peacock…as you’ve said it, so natural.
      Thank you for voting and commenting 🙂

  2. Caroline says:

    I still haven’t seen Breakfast on Pluto but I do agree, he looks gorgeous in it. I voted for Kitten as well.

    1. Novroz says:

      Yup…she is very beautiful there.
      I think Kitten will be the winner here 😉

      1. Caroline says:

        I finally managed to watch Breakfast on Pluto. What a story. What a role. It is really good. Is it really a true story?

        1. Novroz says:

          As far as I know, it’s not a true story. It is based on a book by Patrick McCabe.
          I really want to read the book, but it’s an Irish book, it’s really hard to find

  3. wulaaaaan..... says:

    Kitten, definitely!!! Even more gorgeous than some of the REAL women!!! 😀

    1. Novroz says:

      Hahaha…he is indeed prettier than REAL women. If you saw the movie, not only the face is prettier, the behaviour is also more girly than some REAL women.
      He doesn’t act like most ‘bencong’ we see here.

      1. wulaaaan..... says:

        bwahahahahaha! ‘Bencong’??? I believe the almost-right term is….drag queen?

        1. Novroz says:

          Ah…so there’s a term for bencong after all 😉 . I’ve heard of that term before but never realized that it means bencong…honestly

  4. rtm says:

    OMG, he’s prettier than even most girls! He’s almost unrecognizable as Patricia ’Kitten’ Braden if not for those gorgeous eyes, and he wears the blond curls well, too.

    1. Novroz says:

      You should see his legs!
      His voice is also unrecognizeable. The first time I watched it, I couldn’t stop laughing at his voice.

  5. lifewith4cats says:

    I havent seen any of these. I like the first one best, because he looks like a fun person to hang out with who is not insecure with his identity. I voted for the second because she is the prettiest and very classy. The third pic is not pretty to me.

    Ive had some transvestite friends, who when they dress up they look like super models and much prettier than real women just like wulaaaaan said. Mabee we should get beauty tips from them. heheh

    1. Novroz says:

      The third is a double personality issue. He had to change from a nerdy kind of man to that woman. That’s why as a woman, he can’t be as pretty as Kitten.

      For the Kitten part, Cillian spent a month with real transvestite to learn more about his role. I guess we really need to ask them for a beauty tips 😉

    He is quite lovely as a woman but I prefer the male him. Quite a good actor as well.

    1. Novroz says:

      For me, he is not just a Quite good actor, he is a GREAT actor. People need to see him in his non-holywood big budget movie to know his real talent 😉

  7. mee says:

    Oh so funny, I didn’t know he played as all these women. Okay I’ve added Breakfast on Pluto on my watchlist as it gets highest rating at imdb among the three films above. If I like that I shall venture to watch more 🙂

    1. Novroz says:

      Breakfast on Pluto is the movie that made me obsess with him.
      I’ve seen him in Batman Begins and 28 Days Later and I love looking at his handsome face BUT the movie that made me love him as actor is Breakfast on Pluto… he was Brilliant in that movie. The movie shows how underrated he is.

  8. kiwikar says:

    I admit I had never heard of the actor which makes me wonder because he is quite a handsome guy :). I voted anyway! And I gave my vote to the first one. I must admit it was almost a draw between first and last because usually crossdressing men don’t look like they’re just your average big sister kinda girl. But then I decided that a man who can dress up as a woman and still look like he is a heterosexual man deserved my vote a bit more!

    1. Novroz says:

      I am not surprised if you haven’t noticed him yet, it’s because he is not a superstar chaser, meaning he doesn’t try to find movies that will always make it into blockbuster movie…all he cares about is the script, if it was good he will play it be it independent movie or blockbuster movie. His recent blockbuster movie is Inception, have you watched that movie?

      Thank you for voting on Davin 🙂 he finally had a vote now.

      1. kiwikar says:

        Haha, so I was the first one to vote for No 1? Awww. 🙂

        I still haven’t seen Inception although people keep telling me it’s a good movie. But I rarely go to the movies nowadays… I don’t know why. I’ll keep an eye out for that one!

    Kitten, of course. He had blown me away with that look, esp. in the second part of the film. In the peep show scene, when he is sitting on the swing, he is so incredibly beautiful that it was really difficult to remind myself that this was actually a man behind the make-up. And a beautiful man at that, btw.
    I loved Peacock, the story, and Emma has this shy, natural look, so soft and delicate.
    Davin XD That was just for fun. I liked Sunburn, but i could have kicked his *ss 😀
    Oh god i miss his independent movies so much:(
    Cant wait what you have for May:)

    1. Novroz says:

      That peep show scene always makes me laugh, especially when he showed his non-existant breast…freaking hilarious.

      What’s amazing about Emma is the way she intertwined with John, the best performance by Cillian so far.

      Agree!! Davin really deserve a kick in the butt, such a painful friend. If I was his friend (I have forgotten his friend’s name), I’d left him in a second.

      Me too!! his independent movies are the best, he can fully show his talent in that kind of movies. His Holywood blockbuster movies rarely given him a chance to show his best.

      *Grin* I am hoping you can participate for May edition of Monthly Murphy. I will email you or sent you note from DA a week before the event. I hope a lot of people can participate for May’s post.

    He makes a rather convincing woman. lol
    There ia nothing wrong with pretending to be a woman for your tv show.
    Look at paul o grady for example.
    Besides i have pretended to be a woman in my web show before. lol

  11. Custard says:

    I feel a bit wrong. Murphy looks hot as Kitten. I have never seen the film, but my word he looks amazing as a woman.

    I hate him, good looking as a man, good looking as a lady. The Git!!!


    1. Novroz says:

      He is not only looks amazing as a woman, he also acts amazing as a woman.
      For his female roles, I join you in hating him…he looks more woman than I am 😉

  12. purisuka says:

    dari semua film itu baru liat Peacock aja. cantik ya cillian murphy. pas pertama muncul aku kira itu cewe beneran 😀

    1. Novroz says:

      Hehehe….dia memang Cantik dan Ganteng pada saat yang bersamaan *penuh cinta*
      Ayo nntn Breakfast on Pluto!! Sy br aja selesai nntn untuk yang ke… dah lupa beraka kali saking seringnya ;p

      Hear Hear!!
      I have been advertising those movies to anyone who never heard of Cillian. 2 of his best performances.
      Have you seen Peacock? that is also his best performance.

  14. DEZMOND says:

    I haven’t ,but I will. What I’m usually trying to teach people is that his name is not pronounced as “Sillian” but as “Killian” 🙂 He hates it when people call him Sillian.

    1. Novroz says:

      Looking forward to know what you think of Peacock 😉
      Ehm…I also pronounced it Sillian before I became obsess with him. I agree with him, “Kill” is much better than “Silly” 😉

      By the way, I am planning to do a tribute post for him on his birthday (like what Ruth did for GB), can I assume you are still willing to participate? *big Smile*

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
