Hayley Atwell doesn’t “feel like a milkmaid” in clothes since losing weight for her role in Captain America: The First Avenger.
The 29-year-old British actress plays Peggy Carter in the action adventure movie, which features movie hunk Chris Evans in the title role. Hayley famously exercised hard ahead of shooting. The gorgeous star worked with the trainer Daniel Craig uses for the Bond film franchise.
Hayley lost a few pounds ahead of her role in the Marvel movie, and says she was grateful for the weight loss.
“Which is great - now I can fit into clothes without feeling like a milkmaid,” she told The Sunday Times Culture magazine.
Hayley attended a comprehensive school in London, and has revealed she was bullied for her style as a youngster. The actress combated the mean remarks about her fashion sense by behaving as if she was grown up.
“They said, ‘Your shoes are sh*t!’ I could never manage a clever comeback. I was shy and sensitive,” she explained.
“I used to say, ‘I’m sensing hostility. Are there problems at home? Are you being abused?’ I was used to adult company.”
