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...

A few of her smiling for you lol, i guess i can see how she may come across as stuck up in some interviews or whatever but i take it more as her being more reserved and poised? I feel like calling her obnoxious and unlikeable is a bit odd lol

I was referring to her character in The Queen’s Gambit with the stuck up comment and not her as a person, but maybe that was the intention of the portrayal of the character🤷‍♀️

She's probably capitalising / building on the elfin or alienesque image. I mean, how often do you see aliens portrayed as being all smiles?

Maybe, with her hollow and high cheekbones, she's afraid that she'd resemble the Grinch...? (here's a smiling "alien" for you)

I can agree with you, the same goes for her role in peaky blinders, who was quite hard to like. But we cannot forget that she is an actress and only is portraying a character and therefore not her personality.
I personally find her even more sympathetic by being private about her life rather than super outgoing in order to receive more attention from the public. That’s probably my introverted self speaking who can relate to her.:luv:

I just feel like her character had so much more potential for us to sympathize with, but instead, she never portrays it 100% with her sadness, happiness, sorrow and excitements. It was completely flat somber character that never cracks a single smile or even twinkle in the eyes. No character depth or development whatsoever .

To me, that’s unfortunate because even though they are trying to portray her as fiery and angry, it can’t ALWAYS be the same two moods. If there were more facets for us to see, it would be able to contrast against the angry moods much more.
Therefore, I didn’t find her character in The Queen’s Gambit very endearing or to be sympathized with.

This is not to say I do not like her as an actress, but I also see mostly the same flat toned look most of the time even in paparazzi photos which makes me inevitably think she’s kind of stuck in that character mind frame.

It’s her 25th birthday today so here are some photos of Anya from some friend’s IG stories, past birthdays, and on the set of Emma for good measure ;) DC6CD364-F2BB-4B74-ADAC-02764C94082B.jpeg9EA466EF-41B4-401A-93BE-C515AD1CBC04.jpegE148B3A2-1F4A-47EA-9034-2A22CF6A7518.jpeg86FD123D-6734-4AF7-B3B2-DD88F0D3FE17.jpeg1748F080-8978-470F-9A4D-56C4C686E15F.jpeg

I’m living for this transformation. Here she is on the set of her upcoming movie Last Night in Soho vs more recent pictures of the Tiffany shoot:

Her arms have obviously been getting more toned. I’m wondering if it’s because she snagged the role as Furiosa and obviously as a war captain that character can’t be seen with dough arms.

Oh and her thighs are looking better too:

I find it amazing how different she sounds when speaking Spanish


Bring bilingual, I've been told that my voice is much deeper when speaking English and I see that it's the same case with Anya

Interesting fact: she used to be a model. She was signed to Storm Models in about 2013/14.

Some old modelling pics:

Wow I haven't seen this image before! Love that she is working hard for skinny if this is her 'natural' shape.

She is looking better and better! Her calves are always a little iffy, but I think she's really working on it.

She's not SG skinny but I think she's one of the better shaped celebrities, along with Zendaya, and definitely fighting hard for the look.

From her new movie Last Night in Soho. She would look so much better with her current weight...

Oh my god when was this filmed??? Did she lose a large amount of weight really quickly (or gain?) She just looks so different.
Well, usually movies are filmed a year or two before their release. I’m assuming the release of Last Night In Soho was delayed because of the pandemic so if it meant to come out in 2020 then i’d say it was probably filmed in 2019 or around then. On a side note, that dress does not do her any favors. Looks terrible imo lol.

Is it just me or is her posture also so much better now that she's shed the weight?
