Anya Taylor-Joy Cover Feature

“It was definitely the bloodiest and dirtiest I have ever been in my life,” laughs actor Anya Taylor-Joy, recounting her “war stories” from the set of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, in which she stars as the titular lead. “I remember looking at my makeup artist at one point and saying, ‘I am filthy right now!’” she recalls, sharing nothing prepared her—not even her annual trips to Glastonbury, her favorite festival, where she’s well-used to being knee-deep in mud and grime.

Madonna 'Confessions on A Dancefloor' essay

Time was on Madonna’s mind at the start of her tenth album. Opening with a ticking clock on the seismic Hung Up, there’s an air of urgency as Madonna tells us there’s “No time to hesitate,” because “You’ll wake up one day/But it’ll be too late.” On the dramatic Let It Will Be, Madonna considers: “It won’t last long/The lights, they will turn down.” In How High, she asserts “Nothing lasts forever” and bleakly wonders: “Does this get any better?”

During his MI5 medical exam, Gary Oldman’s scruffy spook Jackson Lamb tells his doctor he’s quit smoking. “Really?!” the doctor says, suspiciously surprised. “Yeah… I haven’t had one for 27 minutes now.” “What about alcohol intake?” the doctor wonders, eyebrow aloft. “Two to three bottles a week.” Not bottles of beer or lager, he implies, but bottles of wine and whiskey. The doctor asks him to get on the treadmill. “You put me on a treadmill, you’ll be done for manslaughter,” Lamb retorts…

Moments later, for the first time in the evening, Harvey addresses the audience: “I’d like to bring to the stage a very special guest,” she says in her rich Dorset tones.
