British actress Tilda Swinton is adamant she will not wear a mask on the set of her new project, despite being asked to do so.

“I’m actually just about to start shooting a picture in Ireland. And I was told, full disclosure, and I’m sure this is being recorded – people in Ireland might hear it – to wear a mask at all times,” she revealed while giving the keynote address at the 2023 South by Southwest Festival (SXSW).

“And I’m not wearing a mask because I’m super healthy and I’ve had COVID so many times and I’m so full of antibodies … and I have faith,” she revealed of her decision. “But it’s very nice to see your faces unmasked.”

Swinton talked to the audience further about the COVID pandemic affecting the cinema industry, saying:

“We’ve had different, not battles, but challenges, let’s say, that euphemism for battle … We’ve had different challenges in the last few years particularly, and some of them are lingering around people’s belief in sitting in big spaces… Look at you, I bet you none of you are wearing masks, as well. I mean, who knew that was gonna be possible… I mean in Texas, did people wear masks? I have to ask.”

Swinton further added the following in regards to the response to the pandemic:

“I don’t know… It’s a wide world and people do things differently all over the place… A couple of years ago, we couldn’t imagine sitting in a room like this. Could we? And we did wonder. I did. I wondered how long it would be before the time we would be able to, and I did – I did have a concern that those who thought that sitting in a big place to look at a big screen was a bit obsolete would kind of gain traction, and that that would just tip it over the edge, and people would just forget the power of the magic carpet… But, then this magical thing happened, you know you asked anybody…what they really missed during the pandemic, and they said the same things. They said friends, family, live music, cinema. Those were the only things people missed. And a bit of travel as well.”

  1. It’s always been about control, they don’t give flying fu*k about one’s health. They proved the world is full of sheepeople and very easily controlled, the goal from day one.

  2. Good for her! Stand your ground! These mask mandates are a joke to begin with! NYC was the epicentre of infections and everyone was wearing masks! So tell me what good are they?

    • You are TOTALLY CORRECT, Padre! The virus is 1/10th the size of the smallest “hole” between fibers in the masks that most people wear. 100% INEFFECTIVE against airborne viral disease infection. Stand your ground! Well stated!

  3. It was an experiment in mass population control and fear mongering and sadly the sheeples complied …all without China using ONE bullet or plane …just deliberately breaking a few test tubes and stand back.
