Speaking to The Times of India, Amy said, “I’m an actor and I take my job very seriously. For the last month, I’ve been filming a new project in the UK. So, for the character I am playing, I had to slim down and fully commit myself to the role. The online outcry from the (mainly male) Indian demographic is quite sad. I have worked with male co-stars who had to drastically change their look for a film, and they were highly praised for it. The moment a woman does it through unusual hair and makeup that doesn’t conform to their idealism of beauty, they think they have the right to troll you.”
Responding to many users comparing her to Cillian Murphy, Amy said that she is ‘over the moon’ that so many people think she looks like the Peaky Blinders star and is ready to get her Birmingham accent ready for a comeback.
Last week, Amy Jackson had shared a bunch of pictures from a recent outing with boyfriend Ed Westwick. Many commented on how she had an uncanny resemblance to Thomas Shellby, a popular character played by Cillian on Peaky Blinders. “You were great in Oppenheimer,” said a fan. “Cillian Murphy hacked her id,” commented another person.
Amy is dating Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick. He played Chuck Bass on the hit show. Recently, they holidayed in Udaipur together. Ed and Amy Jackson confirmed their relationship when Amy made an Instagram post in June last year. She was earlier engaged to George Panayiotou.
Amy has starred in a number of Bollywood films including Ekk Deewana Tha, Singh is Bliing, and Freaky Ali among others.
