On paparazzi: “There are times when you’re just one person facing off against 20 and that’s just physically not safe. It can be very frightening when there are whole bunches of men with cameras attached to their faces running after you down the street.”

On a recent incident: “I went out and I said, ‘Hello, my name is Anya. Let’s lower down the camera and let’s meet.’ I am not prey. I don’t want to run. I’d rather be like, ‘I understand this is your job and I hope that you can understand that I am a woman of a certain size and I feel intimidated right now, so can we make it work so you can do your job and I can feel less frightened?’”

On how FOMO is now officially a thing of the past: “I don’t have time to be a 25-year-old with a hangover. But I’m not someone who needs a drink to dance. Basically I’ve become very efficient at everything. I’m like ‘What do I need out of this situation? I need to dance for a couple of hours, see my friends and have a good time’, so I’m like ‘Right, let’s bang it out.’ Then it’s: go home, have a bath, get up for work. I sound mental, but that’s what’s working for me right now.”

She also just revealed something surprising about her breakout performance in The Witch.
