Anya Taylor-Joy has claimed that cooking is completely pointless since takeout exists. The actress is currently starring in “The Menu,” a comedy horror movie in which a young couple visits a “destination restaurant on a remote island” to enjoy an elaborate tasting menu. However, things go wrong from there. However, Taylor-Joy’s interest in food in real life is much less developed than her character’s.
- Apparently, it “doesn’t interest” her. Talking to Page Six, Anya Taylor-Joy admits that she doesn’t really see the point in cooking elaborate meals. After all, if she’s hungry, she can just order something out. No effort needed. “It’s just more that it doesn’t really interest me,” the 26-year-old said. “I’m not going to lie to you. I feel like we have delivery, we have take out.”
- He co-star is a bit more proficient in the kitchen. Nicholas Hoult said that he feels more comfortable and confident when preparing meals, saying that he’s “reasonable” and “can follow a recipe.” Pretty much anyone who can read can follow a recipe. It just depends on whether or not you have the interest in doing so.
- While you don’t have to be a foodie, shouldn’t everyone know how to cook? Eating isn’t optional. We all need food for fuel, so we should be able to prepare it. While Taylor-Joy is a celebrity who probably has a personal chef (or could easily hire one), there’s a certain joy (no pun intended) in being able to make yourself a delicious meal. Obviously, she doesn’t feel the same!
- So, what’s the deal with “The Menu”? Anya Taylor-Joy’s character Margot goes with her boyfriend Tyler (Hoult) to Hawthorne, an acclaimed restaurant at which chef Julian Slowik (Ralph Fiennes) does the cooking. She and the other guests adore the courses, but it turns out Slowik’s recipes are perhaps a bit too unconventional. It soon becomes clear that not everything is as it seems, and the night devolves into a hilariously terrifying one.
