The 51-year-old Reservoir Dogs star explained that while he was surprised by Cillian's nerves on set, he admired Murphy's way of thinking.

Roth said: "Cillian is a hard-working and dedicated fellow. Unfortunately he’s ugly which is a problem for him in life," he joked.

"I’ll tell you what’s really interesting about Cillian which I hadn’t suspected. I never thought not just in relation to him but to anyone. He’s a serious stage actor. I have incredible stage fright. It’s awful. Filming holds no fear for me. It’s just where I live.

"But he [Cillian] is the absolute polar opposite. He’s really nervous about film. I really like that. I actually admire it. Every film is a battle which I think is very useful."
