I’m just trying to live my life where I am, rather than on my phone, because the phone or the computer can be a really scary place if you let it be that. Whereas if you focus on what you have directly in front of you or around you, that seems more manageable, and it feels like it’s actually more ‘you’ than whatever image of ‘you’ is out there that people interact with.
Because what will happen is [Furiosa] will wrap, and I will have gone from being covered in mud in a really private experience, to sloughing off all of this stuff I’ve had on me, suddenly being really clean, wearing a pair of high heels that I haven’t worn in more than half a year. But I think it keeps it interesting. And to be honest, I have so much energy. I’m so grateful to have things that make me tired and that make me feel like I’m giving everything that I can give. – Anya Taylor-Joy
