'CINDERELLA' STAR EXPLAINS TINY WAIST IN THE FILM: Cinderella star Lily James responded to the rumors that her waist in the movie was CGI by revealing how she managed to pull off the look. She told E! News, "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. If you ate food, it didn't really digest properly, and I'd be burping all afternoon in Richard Madden's face, and it was just really sort of unpleasant. I'd have soup so that I could still eat but it wouldn't get stuck." Lily previously addressed the issue with the L.A. Times saying, "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 and boobs and a bum and a small waist."
