Lily James is REALLY not helping all the controversy about her allegedly digitally-altered waist in Disney's live-action Cinderella.
According to the Downton Abbey actress, the teeny tiny corset she wore for the lead role meant she couldn't eat properly - nothing but liquids while in costume.
"When [the corset] was on we would be on continuous days, so we wouldn't stop for lunch or a lovely tea like this. You'd be sort of eating on the move. In that case, I couldn't untie the corset," the 25-year-old told E! News. "If you ate food it didn't really digest properly, and I'd be burping all afternoon in [Richard Madden]'s face, and it was just really sort of unpleasant. I'd have soup so that I could still eat but it wouldn't get stuck."
BUT! Lily does NOT espouse eating disorders or liquid diets.
"I think it's so important to be healthy and confident and natural and not put too much stress on trying to be thin. I don't get the thin, thin thing at all. It doesn't make any sense to me."
All right Lily, here is the thing - we all understand that actors and actresses have to do extreme and sometimes silly things while they are filming, it's part of the job and they are well-paid for it with nutritionists etc on standby.
But isn't it slightly unwise to ADMIT you were on a liquid diet for the role of Cinderella, knowing that lots of little girls will see the film and want to look just like a princess too? And then for them to find out it's completely unrealistic unless you go on a liquid diet???
Disney is not going to be pleased with this and we don't blame them, quite frankly!
