This situation was practically unwearable from a style perspective. Anya Taylor-Joy “saved” Jimmy Fallon from a potentially disastrous moment at the 2018 Met Gala, as she stated during an interview with Fallon on November 16.
The Queen’s Gambit actress said to the Late Night host, “I don’t know whether you know this but you literally saved my life once. For this, I am truly grateful. Even though she thought this “actual story” was “quite cuckoo bananas,” Anya told the audience how Jimmy jumped in to help her at her first major event.
“I was stuck in one place because the clothing I was wearing was so cumbersome. I was just trying to get through the evening when, as I was standing at the top of the stairs, the stunning Hailee Steinfeld walked by with a very complicated, like, three-train thing, and I got caught up in it “her words “And I thought, “Oh, I’m going to die.
I’ve decided to end my life on the Met stairs, honey.” Anya Taylor-Joy, 26, was about to fall, but luckily Jimmy, 48, was there to catch her. The hand of god literally came down and took me out of it, and it was you, the Menu actress said.
“Also, you handled it in the most adorable way. You introduced yourself to the other person as “Jimmy,” or something to that effect.” Jimmy explained, “It did not escape my mind. You had already begun to fall.” After Jimmy came to her aid, Anya said the evening went from bad to better since she had made a friend.
She thanked you for putting a smile on her face, saying, “You were next to Sarah Paulson, and after that my night got a lot better cause I actually knew somebody there.” (The NBC network and E! are both owned by NBCUniversal.)
