Cinderella's Lily James denies CGI claims: 'I do have a small waist'

14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cinderella star Lily James has denied that CGI was used on her body in post-production.

The actress said that the media interest in her waist size is "hypocritical" and "so negative" during an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

She said: "I naturally have a really small waist. The skirt's big and the corset pulls me in, and that's the point. That's the shape [costume designer] Sandy Powell created.

"I think it's all very hypocritical, and they contradict themselves, and they're drawing more attention to it. I think all that stuff's so negative, and you've got to let it wash over your head."

James added: "I'm so healthy. I've got hips and boobs and a bum and a small waist."

Cinderella also stars Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden as the Prince and Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother.

Helena Bonham Carter, Derek Jacobi, Stellan Skarsgard, Sophie McShera and Holliday Grainger also feature in supporting roles. »

Outrage Watch: Is 'Cinderella's' waist too small?

4 March 2015 11:47 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 4, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: "Cinderella's" teeny, tiny waist has become a battleground. After some observers questioned whether actress Lily James' barely-there midsection in the Disney film's trailer was the result of post-production trickery, the actress defended against those claims at the film's red carpet premiere, telling the La Times that not only does she have a "naturally" small waist, but that the look was the result of a corset designed by "Cinderella" costume designer Sandy Powell. Of the doubters, she added: “I think it’s all very hypocritical, and they contradict themselves, and they’re drawing more attention to it. I think all that stuff’s so negative, and you’ve got to let it wash over your head. ...I’m so healthy. I’ve got hips »

Even all dolled up as Cinderella, Lily James couldn't exactly dine like a princess. The actress - who stars in the live-action remake of the fairytale classic - found herself in a bit of a tight situation: The signature blue Cinderella ball gown had a constricting corset, which made eating a challenge. "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 Brit told E! News. And if she did attempt to consume solid food, »

Lily James, your new Cinderella, has another Disney dream role: Ursula

4 March 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"I want to be Ursula in 'The Little Mermaid,'" Lily James, the star of "Cinderella," confessed. "I don't know. Maybe I need to grow and get bigger tits, and then I'll do it." Though James is basically a showbiz newcomer most known for her arc on "Downton Abbey" as Lady Rose McClare, she's got the casual candor of a veteran actor. Maybe she learned that from her august "Cinderella" costars Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter, who play her wicked stepmother and fairy godmother. "Cate has been one of my favorite actresses of all time," James told us. "To watch her was amazing, how she transformed into this woman. It was intriguing." Check out our interview with James where we discuss the movie's exceptional costumes, the difficulty of chatting with CGI mice, and why she's still never worn a glass slipper.  »
