Sabrina Carpenter recently expressed her admiration for Cillian Murphy during Vanity Fair’s Oscars party. Who wouldn’t have eyes for him, though? Barry Keoghan, another Irish actor who attended the party, had a funny reaction to her words.

Carpenter’s Admiration for Murphy

After the success of Oppenheimer, Cillian Murphy has been getting more and more attention, not just from fans, but also from fellow celebrities. During her interview, Carpenter joked that she would immediately leave the party if she saw Cillian Murphy, or leave with him so she could see where he lived.  Barry Keoghan left a simple comment under the video with a waving emoji and a shamrock.

Fans think Barry was joking because he was Sabrina’s date to the event. As always, some fans didn’t approve of Carpenter’s words. They kindly reminded her that Cillian has been happily married for almost 20 years and has children. Someone even joked about Sabrina collecting Irishmen as if they were infinity stones, as she’s been dating Barry for a few months, even though they haven’t announced it officially.
