Maisie Williams tells it like it is. Whether she’s sounding off on Hollywood sexism or talking about her sexuality she’s candid and true to herself. And that same mindset even trickles down to her description of her bikini style, which was recently inspired by The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel, according to the actress, “minus the tail and the tits.”
While on vacation in Italy the Game of Thrones star posted a seaside pic to Instagram wearing a printed green two-piece with the caption, “I’m Ariel, minus the tail and the tits.” And we have to say, between her pose balancing on rocks, her hair blowing in the wind and the waves crashing behind her, she should definitely audition for the next live-action remake of the Disney movie once Sara Bareilles hangs up her tail.

She may 19 years old but she’s been working in the business since she was 12 and is well on her way to revolutionizing sexism in Hollywood. In 2015 she told the Evening Standard that she’s resisting taking those stereotypically sexiest roles.
“There are a lot of roles that come in that are ‘the girlfriend’ or ‘the hot piece’ in a movie or TV series. That’s something I’ve seen first-hand and read all the time. It will say ‘Derek: Intelligent, good with kids, funny, really good at this’ and then it will say ‘Sandra: Hot in a sort of cute way’ – and that’s all you get,” she shared. “That’s the way your character is described, so going into an audition, you are channeling ‘hot,’ which isn’t like a person, that’s not who a person is. That’s what I see and that’s what needs to change … I just hope that if we stop playing those characters, they’ll stop being written.”
