Anya Taylor Joy sky-rocketed to fame after her incredible performance in Netflix’s blockbuster The Queen’s Gambit. Fans and critics praised her performance, so much so that she won a Golden Globe for the Best Actress, along with countless other accolades from several award ceremonies.
However, besides her acting skills, fans were stunned to see Anya’s incredible physical transformation. Anya has always been a stunning beauty and her recent transformation has made her jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Her Golden Globe red carpet appearance made a lot of heads turn in the fashion industry.
Where some fans appreciated the incredible Anya Taylor weight loss, others were concerned about her health. The sudden transformation gave birth to a lot of questions. And, in this article, we try and answer all of those questions. So, let’s get straight to it.
Anya Taylor Joy Weight Loss Story
If you only started following Anya Taylor Joy after watching The Queen’s Gambit, you might not think that she has undergone much of a weight loss. However, the ardent fans who have seen the debut movie The Witch and her incredible work in the Split universe know that her transformation has been a noticeable one.
That’s why fans were quick to notice her weight loss when she appeared on The Queen’s Gambit. A fan took to Twitter to raise the question about Anya’s weight loss asking whether Anya is losing weight for an upcoming role or is it her own choice.
Well, it’s definitely her choice. But the rumors are that the sudden change is due to her demanding role as Furiosa.
Furiosa is the next big project of Anya all set for a late 2024 release, and Anya will be the lead cast playing the role of Furiosa. It’s a prequel to the Mad Max movies and a spin-off story about the character played by Charlize Theron.
Is Anya Taylor Joy’s Weight Loss Due To Illness?
While some fans are loving the new Anya, others are worried that she might be suffering from an eating disorder because of how slim she’s been looking recently.
However, seeing some recent photoshoots and the way she is flaunting her abs, we are pretty sure that she isn’t sick or suffering from any kind of disorder. Instead, her incredible transformation looks to be the result of a conscious diet and regular gyming.
So, to answer the question once and for all, Anya isn’t sick at all. As fans of her craft, we wish her all the health in the world and we wish people would stop undermining the hard work she has done to achieve this incredible physical appearance.
How Did Anya Taylor Joy Lose Weight?
Now, this is a tricky question to answer because although it is pretty evident that she has lost some pounds, Anya hasn’t talked about the weight loss at all. She often talks about her diet and whether she works out or not, but she hasn’t addressed the recent transformation in any interviews, or maybe everyone’s too busy admiring her, and no one’s asked her about how she did it.
Anyways, it wouldn’t take too many tries to guess that she follows a proper diet and workout routine. Moreover, when actors sign big-budget movies with huge studios as Anya has in the case of Furiosa, it is common for them to follow a strict diet to stay in the right shape for the character. However, what is that diet and workout routine remains a mystery.
Anya Taylor Joy Diet Plan and Workout Routine
Because Anya hasn’t talked about her weight loss publicly, there is not much to share about her diet plan or workout routines. However, we do know that Anya used to be a pure vegan. Ever since she was a child, Anya has followed a vegetable-based diet but only recently started eating meat. She said in an interview:
‘When I was a vegan, it was the healthiest I’ve ever felt because I had so much energy. I was eating a tonne because I have a big appetite and was getting in more greens.’
As for the workouts, only Anya and her trainer know what workouts she follows. But, aside from gyms, Anya is great at ballet and practices it on a daily basis. So, it won’t be wrong to say that Anya’s daily dance routines are the major workouts that help her maintain her new sleek body.
The 25-year-old is enjoying the peak of her career right now with plenty of critically and commercially acclaimed movies already under her belt and some heavy-weight projects in the works. And seeing how she is taking good care of herself, we can only hope that she has a long career ahead of herself. We just wish that she would share her weight loss secrets with us too, so we can try them out as well.
