In an interview with actress Drew Barrymore, as per the publication NME, Anya Taylor-Joy once shed light on how she was bullied in school. For the unversed, Anya lived in Argentina for the first six years of her life. She then moved to England before finally relocating to New York at the age of 14. Shedding light on her school life, the actress asserted, “Argentina is all green and I had horses and animals everywhere – all of a sudden I was in a big city and I didn’t speak the language.” She continued, “I didn’t really feel like I fitted in anywhere. I was too English to be Argentine, too Argentine to be English, too American to be anything.” Anya added, “The kids just didn’t understand me in any shape or form. I used to get locked in lockers.”

The actress also thanked her parents for being understanding. “I was very, very lucky with my parents because when I was bullied for my looks my mom always said ‘You look at the inside of somebody, you don’t look at class, you don’t look at anything like that.’”

Anya Taylor-Joy earlier also confessed how getting bullied left a long-lasting impression on her self-esteem. “I spent a lot of time in school crying in bathrooms; I was so lonely as a kid”, said the actress.
