Anya Taylor-Joy didn’t like making Furiosa

How did she feel in late 2022, when she finally wrapped the arduous production?

“Like I knew I was going to need the two years that it took for the movie to come out to deal with it,” she said.

Taylor-Joy told me that championing Furiosa often felt like a solitary experience.

“I’ve never been more alone than making that movie,” she said, choosing her words carefully. “I don’t want to go too deep into it, but everything that I thought was going to be easy was hard.”

Her reticence reminded me of when I first spoke to the actors who had made “Fury Road”: During that shoot, the desperation of the characters bled into their real lives, and unpacking that experience took a very long time. Sensing that she was skirting a sensitive issue, I asked Taylor-Joy what exactly it was about “Furiosa” that had proved more difficult than she expected. For five long seconds, she contemplated giving me an answer.

“Next question, sorry,” she said. There was a faraway look in her eyes, as if a part of her had been left behind in that wasteland. “Talk to me in 20 years,” she said. “Talk to me in 20 years.”

She is a drama queen and probably insufferable.

Here’s a video of her talking about how she was on the verge of a mental breakdown and Nicholas saved the day by hugging her when he spotted it.

It’s very obvious by his reaction he doesn’t remember it.

She’s probably doing this all the time

r8 Oh wow, I didn't know this was a pattern with her. And if we here are noticing it, just imagine how much the creatives must be taking about it.

She is so full of shit.

There are countless press-junket clips and interviews for this film where she raves about the experience without a hint of strife detected.

Try to stay consistent, Anya.

Leave it to DL to tear the pretty girl to shreds!

Meanwhile back on planet earth, virtually everyone who works with George Miller says *exactly the same thing*.

Unless they are also INSANE, like a certain person.

R11 Regardless if it was torture, sell the goddamn movie. Who wants to pay someone millions of dollars to ultimately talk shit during the press junket?

R19 because you know she’s not. That’s why you know it’s a joke.

She’s not ugly. She just looks incredibly odd and alien.

Well, I certainly won't be adding to the little star's misery by watching this piece of lady shit.

Notice the pattern?

1. Fight like hell to get your way and "succeed."

2. Whine about how you're not happy and that it's all other people's fault, usually male.

Well she is half-Argentinian, those people are DRAMA

I had a crush on her when I first saw her in VVITCH. Loved her in The Queen's Gambit. Should rewatch that show again. But she's getting a bit annoying lately. With all the popular girl shtick. And trailer for Furiosa looked like shit. More like a video game than an actual movie

Too much plastic surgery too early.

That bucal fat removal was a huge mistake

Thank you r15. I find her hideous and her I’m such a delicate English rose-don’t look directly at me or I’ll die of galloping consumption attitude and mannerisms make me want to retch. Ifhh.

Could they not cast someone who even sort of looked like gorgeous Charlize? AT-J looks like a preying mantis.

Oh I thought the movie is called Anorexia.

by Anonymousreply 28May 15, 2024 1:26 AM

It was because she felt unwell in the African desert and George Miller suggested she eat something, isn’t it.

Her diet is very Kate Moss. When she broke out as a teenager she still had that lanky frame and flat stomach, but she had larger breasts and even some curves.

Hardly. Most people don’t even know her name.

I remember Michele Pfeiffer saying the exact same thing while making Scarface. Diet coke, Marlboro Lights and coffee = deliberately starving oneself to be as thin as possible. (Early in her career, Michele was part of a cult that believed you could survive on air alone, so she has always had a touch of anorexia.) Yawn. Does Anya think she's the first? She does look like a praying mantis.

by Anonymousreply 31May 15, 2024 12:44 PM

She looked so much better as a redhead in “The Queen’s Gambit,” it warmed her up. And her body in that was sexy.

The blond hair completely washes her out (Nicole Kidman has the same problem) and she’s too thin. I just don’t get the ice princess “I’m Untouchable” thing, it’s neither sexy nor relatable.

She's hot. But her buccal fat removal is so obvious.

Michelle did that because she was playing a coke addict, dear.

Anya used to be quite pretty yet still unique looking back when she was a bit heavier. Once she got the buccal fat removal and dieted herself down she lost all her prettiness. I still love her though.

The buccal fat troll strikes again.

She is total camp and I love her. She seems outrageously over the top. I hope she gets to star in an Almodovar movie like they have both mentioned wanting to do - she would fit into his world perfectly. Her and Rossy de Palma hissing at each other, long fingernails bared, I can picture it already!

Her performance in The Witch several years ago is astonishing. She can do no wrong in my eyes.

Apparently, the little girl who plays the youngest Furiosa is the best thing about the movie. No one is really talking about Anya.
