Anya Taylor-Joy gives Chris Hemsworth a French lesson

Anya Taylor-Joy gives Chris Hemsworth a French lesson

When “Ready, Set, Go!” becomes… “I want a big Mac Party”!

Anya Taylor-Joy has shown itself to be particularly involved in the promotion of Furiosa, which, after a memorable presentation during the 77th Cannes Film Festival, will be released in cinemas this week. Sporting an incredible look for her American preview, then posing with her very particular gestures as she climbed the steps, she dazzled the photographers… and greatly amused the public by responding with humor to questions from the press.

A video shared on the account TikTok from Warner Bros. has been causing a sensation since this weekend: alongside his playing partner Chris Hemsworth, she has to read lines from the George Miller film in French. The Australian actor tries to guess what line of dialogue it is, and despite his difficulties (he hears in particular “I want a Big Mac Party” when she says “Ready, set, go !”), everyone ends up saluting the almost perfect accent of the 28-year-old actress.

Does Anya speak French fluently? No, but his native language is Spanish. Although born in the United States, she was raised until the age of six in Argentina, before moving to England. This is what she detailed about it Marie Claire UKin 2017:

“I was born in Miami, but we moved almost immediately to Argentina, where most of my family still lives. I lived there until I was six, then we moved to England, but I didn't learn English until I was 8. I wanted to come home so much, I didn't understand anything about life in England. I grew up in a place where everything was green, and precious, where. there were animals everywhere, and suddenly I found myself in this big city wondering: 'What the hell is going on?'

Saying that her parents made this decision when they saw the revolt growing in Buenos Aires, she finally thanks them for having “do everything so that their children grow up in a world without fear”. She then says that while her ruse of not wanting to learn English in the hope that her family would understand that she dreamed of returning to live in Argentina didn't work, it helped her imitate various accents more easily.

Fluent in Spanish, she learned English with a London accent, but is able, after a few hours in the company of people of other nationalities, to pick up their accent. During an American show in 2020, the actress clarified that this could play bad tricks on her:

“The thing is, I do a classic English accent when I talk to my mother, but since it's not my native language, I tend to imitate the people around me. From there, It's difficult for me to stay in the same accent. For example, I went to Ireland and suddenly I started speaking like them, and I had to justify myself, telling the Irish: 'No no no ! I'm not making fun of you!'

On the other hand, for her profession as an actress, it is a very practical talent. “It can complicate my daily life, she confided to Evening Standard in 2017. On the other hand, for playing, it’s really great!”
