It’s been a while since, “Oppenheimer” has been running in theaters and is ruling the hearts of the people as well. Recently, the actress Florence Pugh, who portrays J. Robert Oppenheimer’s lover in the film, claimed that Christopher Nolan apologized for the duration of her role. In Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, Florence Pugh plays Communist leader Jean Tatlock, to rapturous praise. However, Florence claimed in an MTV UK interview that when Christopher first approached her for the part, he apologized to her for the enormity of her role.
The Wonder star remembered when Nolan first approached her about taking on the role.
“I didn’t really know what was going on or what it was that was being made. Except I knew that Chris really, really wanted me to know that it wasn’t a very big role and he understands if I don’t want to come near it. And I was like, ‘Doesn’t matter. Even if I’m a coffee maker at a cafe in the back of the room, let’s do it,” Florence said.
Pugh continued, claiming that Christopher continued and expressed regret over the scale of her role: ‘I remember he apologized for the size of the role. I was like, “Please don’t apologize.”
“And then he said, ‘We’ll send you the script, and honestly, you just read it and decide if it’s like… I completely understand the sizing thing.’ And I remember that evening when I got the script being like, ‘I don’t need to… I know I’m going to do it,” Florence commented.
Florence’s role in the movie became the buzz of the world despite her little screen time, all because of her intriguing sex scene with Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer. The nuclear bomb thriller was Nolan’s first R-rated movie thanks to the sex scene.
The historical epic, “Oppenheimer” directed by Christopher Nolan has amassed staggering box office receipts. The movie has earned more than $700 million globally. With this achievement, the movie surpasses all previous World War II films to become the fifth-highest-grossing IMAX movie.
