“I never think I’m pretty. I do not think I pretty enough to shine in the film, “the actress said in an interview with The Sun.
She continued, “This sounds pathetic. My boyfriend also warned me that people would think I was crazy if I continued to say that. But I just think my face looks weird.”
Taylor-Joy said she never went to the theater to see the movies she participated in and often panicked when filming Emma: “I think I was the first actress to play Emma without good-looking appearance, and I won’t be able to finish the role. Because the first line in the film is: ‘I am beautiful, smart and rich’.
