The 24-year-old Anya Taylor-Joy stays in shape by sticking to veganism. Everything she eats is plant-based. “I’ve been a vegetarian since I was eight, so I don’t touch meat or fish. I was vegan for a long time I got into it because it’s the most ecologically conscious choice you can make as a consumer,” said the actress.
“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 really big appetite and was getting in more greens. As a vegetarian I love a lot of Italian food – but I don’t get that many greens in there!”
