Who has Lily James dated? Here's why she canceled 'Today Show' appearance after Dominic West 'kissing' scandal
The announcement comes after Lily James and Dominic West were photographed 'kissing' in Rome
Lily James recently pulled out of a planned appearance on 'Today's Show' after she was seen kissing married co-star Dominic West, according to reports. Lily, 31, who is known for her performance in romantic films, likes to keep her love life private.
She was set to appear in the third hour of the NBC show on Monday, October 19, to promote her new Netflix drama 'Rebecca' alongside co-star Armie Hammer, reports Page Six. She is also due to promote her latest film through this week, although it’s unclear if she’ll still appear given the controversy. The announcement comes after Lily and West were photographed getting close while touring Rome after they recently filmed the new BBC drama 'The Pursuit of Love' together.
In pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, the pair were seen on a scooter ride and having a lunch date during the two-day excursion in the Italian city. West was also captured stroking Lily's hair and leaning in for a kiss. Here is the list of all the men Lily has dated:
The 31-year-old has only been publicly linked to a handful of men. Lily briefly dated British actor Jack Fox in 2011, but they split a year later. The couple attended a few events together, including the 2012 Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Final. The handsome 35-year-old British stage and screen star comes from the British Fox thespian dynasty, which includes his father James, brother Laurence, uncle Edward and cousins Emilia and Freddie. Jack and his dad even starred together in the 2015 West End production 'Dear Lupin'. It seems that Lily definitely prefers to date fellow actors, as everyone she has been linked to since dating him is in the same profession.
Lily's relationship with 'The Crown' actor Matt Smith is definitely her most-publicized romance to date. The duo first on the sets of 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Zombies' in 2014 and sparked relationship rumors shortly after. Although they made several appearances together, they usually avoided talking about each other in interviews. At the 2018 BAFTA awards, Lily was spotted donning a diamond solitaire, which sparked engagement rumors. Even though the couple stayed silent about their relationship status in public, their numerous public appearances together told a completely different tale. Lily and Smith reunited for a walk in London in March this year but it seems that they have officially broken up.
Lily and Evans' love story started somewhere in 2020 after the pair were snapped together several times in London. Not just the pictures, the couple spent a night out together at Marks Club, Mayfair, after which they headed back to Evans' hotel. On July 8 this year, the two were spotted eating ice cream while taking a walk through a London park. The couple never confirmed or denied the rumors of their romance, but Lily's linkup with West came as a shock for people as most of them thought that the 'Mamma Mia!' girl is romancing the 'Captain America' star.
