If you haven’t heard of her already she’s an actress who recently gained a lot more attention as Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit and has been in other things such as Split, Peaky Blinders, and The Witch. I’ve been wanting to make a thread for her for a while now because although she’s not particularly skinny, I think her face is stunning and I enjoy watching her on screen. The reason I started this thread was because I just came across these recent photos of hers which make me wonder if she’s lost any weight. Can someone tell me if my eyes are deceiving me?

Here is her before:B76E1175-D102-4A67-8CE3-7C6A0C6FA410.jpeg0645D663-1C9D-4815-A1EE-B2D936B9178B.jpeg3AF5E0D9-13D6-46DB-B01B-DA3EA5223CA2.jpeg

Oh, I’ve been a fan of hers for a few years now. She was fantastic in Thoroughbreds and Split (though Split itself was admittedly not great). The Witch was also a great performance even though she was still quite young.

I haven’t watched The Queen’s Gambit yet but she definitely looks skinnier to me in those paparazzi photos... it suits her much better to be thinner. Her face is so unique and beautiful and her doll-like features are so much more prominent when on a skinnier body. I hope she keeps this up and that it wasn’t just for the role! :luv:

Your eyes are not decieving you. I've been following her for quite some time now and I have to say watching the meltdown scene in TQG was particularly painful :slinkout:
I'm glad she's losing/lost because her face and frame just can't take the excess weight.

I love her - I think her face is otherwordly and I am jealous that she seems to be able to pull off any hair colour and style. She would look much better if she lost some - those pictures look promising, hopefully she can maintain it.

Anya won a Golden Globe for The Queen’s Gambit and she looks amazing! She has slimmed down so much.585CEE3B-21B4-4300-B4AB-BB775D180C4F.jpeg01BC6AF0-AB00-477C-AE8F-73A366AF88E2.jpegB0B38AD8-3473-4980-9BC0-148D67120E80.jpeg

Although she’s not SG skinny (and probably never will be) I’m low key loving her transformation. I find her facially really beautiful. I felt a wave of disappointment every time the camera showed her arms or body in the Queens Gambit; all I could think was “what a waste of face”. This is a much needed improvement!

I was just coming here to see if anyone had made a thread about her or commented on her stunning golden globes green dress. The dress/coat combo was so elegant and I thought her arms looked proper skinny. Didn't love the dior second look, but that's down to the dress (weird construction imho) than her.

Also, if that's all her real hair, I'm so jealous and would kill to know how she keeps it all so healthy and white- white blond. anya-taylor-joy-dior-atj-blue-dress-hr-1614607461.jpg

Her face was stunning even before she dropped the weight; now she's otherworldly. :luv:
(I don't even care if she never gets SG skinny if I'm being perfectly honest:run:)

In Dior haute couture for the Critics Choice Awards. Personally don’t love the dress tbh but she still stuns.

Another amazing dress for the SAG Awards:

You literally JUST beat me to it!

She is one of the most delicate looking creatures.
Her slender shoulders/arms, with that pale skin and her alien/fairy facial features... ugh :luv:

Compared to how she looked in The Queen's Gambit her progress is great. Hope she loses another 10lbs :inluv:

She is very gorgeous and one of the few celebrities where I feel don’t even need to lose more weight. She has the too-skinny-face syndrome that comes with losing weight.
Her face is actually looking rather gaunt for an actress. If she were a model, I would say another ten pounds.

On another note, I find her very monotone and not many other expressions. Never seen a smile or an expression more uplifting.
Even in The Queen’s Gambit, I felt like she became rather obnoxious and unlikeable of a character with the constant stuck up look...
