Diamonds, erm, crystals are a girl's best friend.

At least, that's the case for Anya Taylor-Joy. In fact, while promoting her latest film Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival, the actress revealed that she doesn't travel without her crystals.

"I don't think that you could ever have too many of them," Anya told E! News in an exclusive interview. "The issue is that I travel with them, and when people lift up my bags, they're like, 'Ugh, it's so heavy. What do you got in there, rocks?' And I'm like, 'Yeah.' It's embarrassing."

The 28-year-old noted that she'll even pack her giant crystals, admitting, "I never look at one and go, 'You're small, you're a travel one.'"

This isn't the first time Anya has shared insight into her wellness rituals.

"I'm such a big believer in cosmic destiny and putting one foot in front of the other, and my feet led me to that film," she told Vanity Fair in 2019, referencing her breakout role in The Witch. "It's been really fun watching [that kind of wellness] take off."

She continued, "I think it's wrong for O.G. witches to be like, 'Ugh, now everyone has crystals.' It's like, Yes! Amazing."

For Anya, crystals have been a healing practice.

"People are starting to open their minds to the idea of minerals having properties that can help you out," she explained, "and it being less 'inject this; this will make you feel great.' Just maybe take a couple of breaths and hold on to this crystal."
