Pugh recalled asking the camera surgeon about how he was fixing the device while she and her co-star were naked on set.

Florence Pugh and Cillian Murphy experienced technical difficulties while filming a sex scene on the set of Oppenheimer, the actress shared this week during a Universal panel.

“In the middle of our sex scene, the camera broke,” Pugh shared. “No one knows this, but it did. Our camera broke when we were both naked, and it was not ideal timing.”

Pugh played Jean Tatlock in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, who was in a relationship with Murphy’s titular protagonist before and during his marriage to Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer, played by Emily Blunt.
