Julia Fox was told to stop taking acting classes for Jordan Peele's next film

The 34-year-old gained recognition as an actress after appearing alongside Adam Sandler in 2019's Uncut Gems and she has since followed it up with roles in Steven Soderbergh's films No Sudden Move and Presence, among other credits. She is now working on Goat, a sports-themed psychological horror produced by Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions. To prepare for her biggest role to date, Fox decided to take acting classes - until the film's team immediately told her to stop. "You're ruining the magic," she told Variety as she recalled that conversation, noting that they just wanted her to be herself.
