Even in her early 20s, Anya Taylor-Joy already takes care of herself by practicing a healthy lifestyle. Most of the time, she’s conscientious of her diet. She also tries to lead an active life by exercising whenever she can. However, she also admits that her crazy schedule doesn’t give her much free time to visit the gym.
Nonetheless, she still considers her on-the-go lifestyle as a form of exercise. Being busy with work, that’s a lot of physical exertions coming from her. “The whole day feels like exercise, waking up at 4am and going straight to work. I want to get back into ballet and hip-hop dance classes. They help me to focus on one moment clearly,” said the actress.
