Anya Taylor-Joy reconsidered her “really scary” experiences with the paparazzi. In an interview with Tatler, the actress explained how she was able to calm things down.
Anya Taylor-Joy opened up about some of her “really scary” experiences with the paparazzi. Following the success of The Queen’s Gambit, the actress is one of Hollywood’s most requested actresses, with several of her films including Last Night in Soho and The Northman being highly anticipated.
But while most of her encounters go very well, in an interview for the October 2021 issue of Tatler magazine, she confessed that her interactions with the paparazzi weren’t always so pleasant. “Most of the people are nice and sweet and just want a little chat, and I love it,” she shared. But, there are other times when you’re just one person against 20 and it’s just not safe physically. It can be very scary when there are lots of men with cameras strapped to their faces chasing you down the street. “
However, the young star recently discovered during a trip to New York that she can regain control in these situations by calmly presenting herself to the photographers lying in wait for her. “The next morning I went out and said, ‘Hello, my name is Anya. Let’s lower the camera and meet. ” I am not a prey. I don’t want to run away. I prefer to say, “I understand this is your job and hope you can understand that I am a woman of a certain size and I feel intimidated right now, so can we make it work? so that you can do your job and make me less afraid? “” said the 25-year-old actress.
