Lily James is tired of talking about her body.
Much has been said about the actress' tiny waist in Walt Disney Pictures' Cinderella, but for James, it's not something she ever thought she would need to address during the film's press tour. In a HuffPost Live interview Monday, she was asked, "Did you think that it was going to cause this much of a to-do?"
"Of course not. On one hand, it's upsetting. On the other hand, it's just boring. Why do women always get pointed at for their bodies?" the 26-year-old British actress fired back. "And why is this whole thing happening that I'm constantly having to justify myself? International Women's Day has just gone, and it just feels just a bit sad that it's still happening. And, you know, I'm very healthy and I always have been."
Sandy Powell designed the iconic dress that Cinderella wears to the ball. "It goes in at the waist and the skirt is big and full so that it accentuates the shape," James explained. "I felt like a princess wearing it."
James added, "Corsets are always hard to wear—they just are. That's what they are."
