Because of the two blockbuster movies this summer, the 68-year-old from Massachusetts, Barbara “Barbie” Oppenheimersuddenly found herself in the strange position of explaining that this is her real name…

Barbie Oppenheimer is a retired Boston University professor and grandmother of 5 grandchildren. It found itself in a strange position due to the almost simultaneous release in cinemas of the films ‘Oppenheimer’ and ‘Barbie’.

Slate magazine interviewed Barbie Oppenheimer (Barbie Oppenheimer), who emphasized that the people who know her these days hardly believe that this is her real name.

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’.
