Hot or Not: Anya Taylor-Joy

08.30.2016by: Cherry Liquor

It seems as if age doesn't matter one bit when it comes to Michelle Yeoh, whom most of you expressed a strong desire for in last week's column. Her movie didn't fare as well, with most people going out in strong numbers for DON'T BREATHE last weekend instead. Which simply seems to say that audiences crave horror/thriller movies as the summer begins to turn into fall. A good thing for this week's featured hottie, who has her new movie MORGAN locked and loaded to do battle with the killer blind dude.

Anya Taylor-Joy

If you don't recognize her yet, you should. She's that willowy blonde who had everyone atwitter in THE WITCH earlier this year. Shhhhhh... I haven't seen the movie. If I'm being completely open with you, I haven't seen anything ATJ has done yet, other than the clips for that movie, her BBC 1 show "Atlantis" and the trailers for MORGAN. Wait, I did see VAMPIRE ACADEMY but I'd be hard pressed to point her out in her role of "Feeder Girl" if you asked me to.

Here's what bugs me about Anya. Her face looks CGI. Her eyes seem too big, spaced too far apart on her face. When I first saw the trailer for MORGAN, I instantly flashed to the 2009 movie, SPLICE, which I love because of the awesome casting of Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley but especially because I have a hard-on for director Vincenzo Natali. Taylor-Joy has the same face as Dren, the science experiment gone wrong. While that creature/character was played by French actress Delphine Chaneac, her features were distorted with CGI. When photographed well, Anya appears striking, in that odd beautiful kind of way. When she's not... well, she looks alien in a very discomforting way. Great for the movie's creep factor, not so much for determining sexiness.

Hollywood is already infatuated with ATJ, considering that she's gone from practically a fresh-faced newbie to a potential blockbuster front runner with 4 relatively big budget flicks on her roster, including M. Night Shyamalan's latest, SPLIT, due out next year. But, I'm going to give this one a pass on my final answer when it comes to hotness. While I'd like to recognize her uniqueness in a cookie-cutter industry, there's something off-putting when you just look at her pictures. Once I've watched some of her work, I'm actually fairly certain I'll change my mind. But for now, not so much hot as she is... well, just not.

What do you think of Anya Taylor-Joy?
