Anya Taylor-Joy Reveals The Secret Talent She Uses To Troll Her Friends

Speaking with James, and fellow guest Ben Schwartz, the Last Night in Soho actress shared that she learned how to cry on cue “because the first time I ever had a crying scene in a film, I didn’t know how to approach it. So, I was like, ‘I know — I’m going to think about every thing bad that’s ever happened to me from 5 o’clock in the morning onward.’”

She went on, adding “they kept pushing my scene to the end of the day, so eventually I cried for 12 hours straight — not on camera. And they’re like, ‘It’s time,’ and I’m like, ‘I got nothing for you, man.’ So, yeah, [I learned to do it] kind of out of necessity.”

On top of using the talent on her projects, Anya also does it to mess with her friends.

“So this little light misting of tears, yeah, that I do to my friends all the time. Well — this is really mean — but when I’m with my friends and I wanna troll them,” she shared, before physically pulling the tear back in her eye.

While Anya does try to use it a lot with her friends, it appears they’ve caught on to it.

“When I’m out with my friends — I can’t do it as much now because it’s kind of lost the appeal — but sometimes I’ll just start crying and be like, ‘You can’t speak to me that way!’ in public and just wait to see what happens,” she continued. “But now they don’t put up with it anymore.”
