In fact, she explains that her last name is indeed related to Robert Oppenheimer, as her husband is a third cousin of the “father” of the atomic bomb.
Oppenheimer initially said that “some people think I’m joking. I had students from high school who remembered me years later to comment on this coincidence with my name. It’s really funny that the two movies came out so close together and all this mess has happened.”
Oppenheimer added that she and her husband saw Christopher Nolan’s film because they “really wanted to see how he portrayed his story.”
She mentioned that she has seen both movies and loved both ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer’.
