Anya Taylor Joy on her dating life on media
Anya Taylor Joy said to The Guardian in March 2018 that she is not ready to speak about her relationships publicly and might never do such a thing even in the future. When she was about how she is adjusting to the sudden popularity and fame, she said that she felt more pleasured when she was not famous. There is a beauty in being anonymous, according to Taylor Joy. She plays a lot of characters on screen, and people see those characters and develop a liking for her. The thought is quite daunting to her, so she avoids thinking about it altogether.
The people who fall in love with the characters and whom they love is a person who is behind the screen. They do not realize who the person is behind the screen and the person behind the screen is actually much different from the characters they play.
Anya Taylor Joy discussing “Girlfriend-roles” on and off-screen
Anya discussed a lot about her opinions about dating with The Guardian in 2018. She said that being someone’s girlfriend is of little significance to her, and she is not interested in being just a girlfriend. She might have had a relationship in the past, but the societal stereotype of a girlfriend does not attract her much.
She detests the idea of being someone’s girlfriend even when it comes to playing a role on-screen. She rejects “Girlfriend- roles,” and her reaction to them is, “Eh! Why?” Therefore one can see her in more character roles that have stories to tell. Most of her works have been quite different from mainstream romances or rom-com.
However, there are many on-screen romances of Anya with actors. The plot of the series or movie has some important elements and narratives which has much more than typical “boyfriend-girlfriend” romance.
