"I said to my partner the other day that he was my hobby," she told the fashion magazine in its April 2022 cover story, adding that he "loved" her joke because "he's the same."

She continued, "I've finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading. We're basically 80 years old and seven at the same time and it works really well."

Despite the London-based couple's recent long-distance relationship—thanks to Anya's busy filming schedule—the Peaky Blinders actress said she sees the bright side to the situation.

"It's kind of great because when you're together you're really valuing the time that you have," she told British Vogue. "Everyday mundane activities are so full of joy."
