Batman BEGINS actor Cillian Murphy has lashed out against comparisons to Phone Booth actor Colin Farrell.

Unlike his bad-boy fellow countryman Farrell, Murphy - who is happily married to YVONNE and has a baby son MALACHY - prefers a reserved lifestyle away from the limelight.

Murphy says, "If you behave like a celebrity, then people will treat you like a celebrity, and if you don't, they won't.

"There's not much to write about me in the tabloids."
