Anya Taylor-Joy is a private person and tries to keep her romantic relationships under wraps. But, it was confirmed a while ago that she and Malcolm McRae are dating, and just like his wonderful girlfriend, this musician is far from boring.


Searchlight Pictures has released a new trailer for an upcoming film starring actress Taylor-Joy. Her character and her character's boyfriend travel to an island in this dark-comedy horror.

They visit a high-end restaurant there, but what is meant to be a beautiful night out, enjoying delicious food, soon becomes a cult-like horror scape.

Actor Ralph Fiennes plays the head chef that embodies the sense of uneasiness that the protagonist feels early on in the story.

At the trailer's beginning, the guests almost seem eerily entranced with the food from "The Menu," as the movie is aptly named. The protagonist appears unimpressed with the cuisine.


The chef then hauntingly says to her, "You shouldn't be here tonight," Whatever that means is a mystery we can only solve when the film hits theatres on November 18, 2022.


A romantic at heart, Malcolm McRae impulsively moved to Los Angeles from Alabama for a woman. Sadly, the relationship ended. But, at least he had his music to keep him company, playing in a band called "More." He has also dabbled in acting, but music is his main passion.

His broken heart was soon healed when he came across the beautiful Taylor-Joy. True to her private nature, the two kept their relationship under the radar. But rumors were everywhere until the two became Insta official in July 2021. Taylor-Joy posted a picture with the caption, "I'm besotted."


Hand-in-hand, they then took to the red carpet in March 2022 and April 2022. When the two aren't attending high-end events, they enjoy reading together in silence.

At least, this is what Taylor-Joy implied by speaking about her beaux's love for reading. She stated that it's important that her partner enjoys literature. They do seem like a match made in heaven.



It isn't easy to know a lot about this actress's dating history because of her penchant for privacy. Still, one of the most significant individuals that she reportedly dated, with rumors beginning around 2016, was Eoin Macken.

Macken is a model and an actor who appeared in many films such as "Resident Evil" and "Close." It was rumored that the two might get engaged when she arrived at a film festival with a noticeable ring.


But, even if they did want to walk down the aisle, her current relationship status proves that this certainly never occurred. There was also short-lived speculation that Taylor-Joy was in a relationship with the photographer Ben Seed.

In May 2020, photographs were taken of the two walking around New York City. But, this soon died out. Hopefully, the whispers can die down now, and she and McRae can read together in peace.


Let's also hope that her boyfriend can comfort her through the ups and downs of being an actor. Because, beyond the paparazzi, sometimes they can take on challenging roles.

Taylor-Joy claimed that she struggled a lot when playing her role in the movie "Northman" and is happy she survived. The film, directed by Robert Eggers, was taken on the freezing Northern Island along with treacherous landscapes.

Despite the many challenges, she pulled off an outstanding performance, as she always does; her determination is a huge reason that she is one of Hollywood's most wanted actresses.
