Read the full article to know the truth about Anya Taylor-Joy's plastic surgery rumors and calculated photo comparisons on the matter.

The Truth about Anya Taylor Joy's Plastic Surgery Rumors

It's no wonder that Taylor-Joy has been put constantly under the microscope in regard to her changes in looks and appearances. 

However, Anya’s rumors aren’t based on anything other than posts that are amplified by her fans and plastic surgery and makeup-related social media groups and channels, pointing out the changes seen in her appearances over the years.

In January 2021, an Instagram account @celebplastic, which tries to compare pictures of celebrities' appearance changes in regards to plastic surgery rumors, compared a series of pictures from different timelines, captioning, "Then and now."

The pictures posted showed a significant change in her cheek area.

And on Twitter, many fans have suggested that Taylor-Joy has had her buccal fat removed. 

One fan wrote, "Me digging through the trash at Anya Taylor-Joy’s plastic surgeon’s office to chew on her buccal fat, humorously posting a picture of a dog."

In addition, there are some who have speculated that she might have also done an eyebrow lift.

Another fan wrote, "I like everyone else thought it was just age. But then I saw this video of facial features changes of Anya Taylor-Joy and holy sh*t.. she has definitely gotten a few works done like an eyebrow lift."

In general, the consensus on Twitter is that she looked better naturally before these changes in her appearance of hers. 

As per a fan, "Remember everyone. Anya Taylor-Joy is the latest example of ruining your face and body with procedures you didn't need. Look at this. Elective plastic surgery must be restricted."

However, Taylor-Joy herself hasn’t spoken about ever doing plastic surgery yet.

Still, there is some voice on social media who doesn't believe that she went under the knife. 

A fan tweeted, "I don't know why anyone would make fun of Anya Taylor-Joy. She's strikingly beautiful in a way that no plastic surgeon could recreate. Someone that is naturally like that is a gift."

Similarly, another fan boasted, "I genuinely do not think Anya Taylor-Joy has had any plastic surgery and i’ll stand by that."

Hence, comparing pictures of the actress from different timelines may not directly co-relate that she did undergo plastic surgery procedures since changes in age and weight also bring changes in one's looks.

Therefore, until Anya's speaks up about her procedure, we must take everything we read online about her surgery rumors suggesting she had rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, or any other procedures with a grain of salt. 

Anya Taylor-Joy Doesn’t Wear Makeup Except when Working

If you didn't know, Taylor-Joy told to The Sun in 2022 that she was not "beautiful enough to be in films."

And while Anya is confident with her skin and natural self, she complies with a beauty routine for her professional work.

When talking to W Magazine, The Queen’s Gambit star revealed she avoided wearing makeup when not working.

Unless I’m working, I don’t really wear makeup… I don’t have the skill! The most I’ll do is stick on some lipstick (deep purples or reds are my favorites) and whatever mascara my sister has in her cabinet.

She also revealed that she didn't do much exercise but stated that she remained active throughout the day, especially when she was working. She also tries to walk to her destination if she has the time.

But that's a thing of the past. Now, she flaunts a fit body with abs.

In 2020, she lost weight to portray the character of Beth Harmon in the coming-of-age period drama miniseries, The Queen's Gambit.

But even before that, she had started to shed unnecessary fat in her body.

Her secret to weight loss was her workout routine comprising ballet, running, and other exercise activities such as kickboxing and pilates and her plant-based low-carb vegan diet plans. 

In addition, her busy schedule has also added to her regimen of not getting excess fat stored in her body.

She said she survived on "diet coke, cigarettes, and coffee" in the period of two months in 2020 while she remained busy filming Emma, Last Night in Soho, and The Queen Gambit in 2021.

Got Into Skin Care Because of Frances Cha

Anya wasn’t big on skincare initially but changed her mind later as her skin was essential in her work. Another thing that helped her was reading If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha. Though it’s a fiction book and not about skincare, it inspired her to care for her skin.

I never washed my face or paid attention to skin care until about two years ago when I suddenly realized I should probably start taking care of the thing I use to work with. I read an incredible book called If I Had Your Face by Frances Cha.

Anya further added that the book taught her about skincare in Korea and got her to be more serious about taking care of herself. She also expressed her gratitude to the author and her work of fiction.

Anya Taylor-Joy Is Into Anything Ridiculous

Though Anya started getting serious about skincare later, she is now very passionate about it.

One self-care practice she loves is baths with salts and essential oils. Anya says her love for baths was instilled in her by her mother, and she likes to make a ritual out of it.

Anya is also into more modern treatments such as cryotherapy, which involves treating the body using cold temperatures. However, when talking to Elle, Anya revealed she was into anything ridiculous.
