Billie Eilish reveals the dream she had years ago that made her realize she had to break up with her then-boyfriend.

The Grammy-winning singer and her brother Finneas O'Connell chatted with Amelia Dimoldenberg for an Oscar nominees “pre-luncheon” lunch on Friday when Eilish opened up about the memorable dream.

After Dimoldenberg asked the musical duo if they wrote their 2016 hit “Ocean Eyes” about Cillian Murphy, they both jokingly agreed that they “probably” did. O'Connell added: “I probably wrote it about Cillian, yeah. Big fan of Cillian’s Eyes in Dunkirk.”

But Eilish quickly added, “Batman is the one.” Dimoldenberg then asked, “Is that your favorite superhero?” to which the “Bad Guy” singer replied, “Yes? “I don’t really know much about superheroes,” but that she particularly liked 2008’s “The Dark Knight.”

This prompted the singer to say that she needed to “be real” for a moment.

“A few years ago I had a dream about Christian Bale, in a small cafe in the sunlight, and I realized that I had to break up with my boyfriend at the time,” she revealed. O'Connell burst out laughing while Dimoldenberg dropped his mouth in shock at Eilish's comment.

“No seriously. I woke up [cue her pretending to open her eyes] and I came to my senses,” the Happier Than Ever singer quipped. “It's over.”

Although Eilish did not name which boyfriend she was referring to, she was recently reported to have been linked to The Neighborhood lead singer Jesse Rutherford, but the two reportedly broke up last year.

Eilish and O'Connell are nominated for Best Original Song at the 96th Academy Awards for “What Was I Made For?” from the Barbie soundtrack. They are also expected to perform at the March 10 ceremony.
