Lily James: ‘All sorts of people can become great loves of your life’

The Observer recently caught up with Miss Lily James to chat about her upcoming series, The Pursuit of Love, the importance of female friendship, as well as a certain Mr. Dominic West...

On the 'quasi-sexual' female friendship between her character and Emily Beecham's in the Pursuit of Love: "We never explicitly decided whether it was sexual or not. Instead, we talked about female friendship for hours over Zoom. We shared our own experiences of how they can be the most important, nourishing relationships in your life. Particularly as a young girl growing up, your hormones are going wild and you’re exploring your sexuality. Fanny’s mother has abandoned her, so she’s missing that connection. Linda’s locked in this house and refused an education. There’s so much longing within both of them. They’re figuring things out through each other. It felt so true. It’s an ode to female friendship."

On working with animals on the set of the show: Oh God, my little French bulldog Plon-plon. There’s a scene where Linda opens this hat box and a tiny puppy is inside. I’ve never had to act less in my entire life. I got so close to that dog. He was forever snogging me and licking my face. I didn’t mind one bit.

On being the centre of a media storm last year due to gallivanting with Dominic West in Italy: "Ach, I’m not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now, I’m afraid."

"There is a lot to say"

Be smart and don't say anything except "I made a mistake"
Like, what is the downside to just saying that?
I mean, it still paints her as "the tramp" to the vast majority of people. I feel like she and Dominic are sticking to the "just pals being pals" story and hoping it becomes a distant memory.
OK, but she's not smart, lol. She admitted that she might be taken in by the q-anon weirdos last summer.

I think the first rule of PR is to always deny because there is always someone out there who will give you the benefit of the doubt.

It’s a strategy that seems to be successful unless you have multiple pictures showing you canoodling around town with a married co-star.
lol okay, girl
Is this THAT Lily.
Oh it is
Lily Collins will not be able to live this affair down.
hermana, not this take coming from you lmaoooo

Didn't Cannibal Hammer's scandal bury hers? She should just ignore it. Act like it didn't happen. It won't affect her career.
Well I would say helping a married man cheat is a step above cannibalism fantasies and abuse.
Hopefully, this is sarcasm

Since he did a lot more than fantasies

i agree, i hope this is sarcasm considering armie hammer is an abusive rapist and cheating on his wife is the least problematic thing he's done

Would you, really? Would you really say cheating is worse?

She should definitely be happy that people forgot she and Armie hooked up while the whole thing was going down.
Even haggard, weathered, married men... love knows no bounds <3
The "all sorts of people" line sounds like it's about great loves coming in the form of friendship as well as romance, which I do agree with. The friends I made at 11 are still the strongest relationships I've had, and losing a friend can be so much worse than losing a SO.

I do look forward to whenever she finally does talk about the weird choices she made this year though lmao.
This has already not aged well
Girly you better stay quiet lmao

She’s messy but I think she’s talented and engaging onscreen
Yeah, I agree. I've said this already, but I don't think this should ruin her career.
she's incredibly charismatic.
I've liked her in everything I've seen her in.
Ooooo I'm hunkering down for this post lmao.
Clickbait title success
girl just sit there and eat your food lol
At the risk of being a hypocrite, since I just blasted Taika Waititi for cheating on his wife in another thread, I don't hate this girl. Perhaps because she gave us some entertainment during the driest part of quarantine lol. NOT excusing her at all, but I think about my past relationships and the crumbs I accepted and how hard it was to let even those shitty situations go; all this assuming she was lied to by West, but either way, hopefully she's learned something.

Also she doesn't really owe it to anyone to talk about it. I mean, I know celebrity works like this and she may HAVE to in order to control the branding nightmare this surely has been, but for me adults cheating on each other, eh, by all means, expose yourself as trash, but whatever, live your life.
I doubt that anyone in the industry would hold the cheating against her. It's shitty behavior but par for the course. What could hurt her is the fact that she flaked on a couple interviews after she and Dominic were exposed.
"past relationships and the crumbs I accepted"

Don't ever forget for a second that you deserve better than that. Men ain't SHIT.
Thank you, bb. <3
Sure, honey

You know that doesn't matter for huge portions of the population UNFORTUNATELY.
lmao ok but that's really not in the book so it's really some nonsense

Incoming Hot Girl Summer Lizzie would agree!
