Anya Taylor-Joy is accused of ‘promoting starvation’ as she POSES topless in a waist-cinching corset


Anya Taylor-Joy has been accused of ‘normalising starvation’ and promoting eating disorder trope after displaying her tiny waist in a corset. 

The actress, 27, shared a behind-the-scenes snap to Instagram on Sunday following the Dune premiere, in which she’d cinched in her waist under her glittering gown. 

She went topless in the black and white image that highlighted her extremely narrow midsection.

Fans React

Fans were shocked by the image, taking to the comments to pen: ‘Can we not normalize starvation?’; ‘Do you realize how corsets are hurtful for women’s health and should not be promoted?’

‘Anya I love you but this looks so pro-ana’; ‘Are your ribs okay? Could you breathe? Like, honestly wondering! :)’; ‘Rough. Expected better from you tbh. Thinness isn’t chic’.

Others shared: ‘That is not a healthy look for women at all’; ‘I’m sorry this is not it’; ‘Stomach: I’m tired boss’; ‘Nothing to be proud of & sets a poor example for young girls.’

Some Like What They See

Yet some fans were quick to defend Ana, reasoning: ‘She’s not promoting anything, dude, let a woman be free. If she likes it good, if you don’t, it’s perfectly fine. You have the right not to wear it, just as she has the right to wear anything she likes. We don’t have to be all dramatic about it…’;

#What’s up with y’all in the comments? Go touch some grass. Her body is perfectly fine, she’s always been on the slimmer side and the first pic it’s just a corset she wore during an event. Ffs.’ 

In recent years corsets have soared in popularity after stars raved about their ability to whittle away your waistline.

There Are Warnings Against the Trend

Waist training – where you wear tighter and tighter undergarments to cinch in your middle permanently – is now de rigueur among certain celebs.

But doctors and historians have warned against the trend, revealing that restricting the waist can take its toll on many aspects of the body.

Along with her corset snap, Anya shared a snap in a dramatic Maison Margiela gown from creative director John Galliano’s Parisian-inspired SS24 Haute Couture Collection.

The incredible dress featured a form-fitting gold slip underneath, and a black sheer tulle structured dress over it.
