A Look At Lily James' Relationship History

Oh, it's been an eventful week already. Yesterday, Lily James was linked to The Affair actor Dominic West - after the pair were pictured in Italy, sharing a scooter and enjoying a very cosy al fresco lunch. Lily, 31, and Dominic, 50, are co-starring in an adaptation of beloved novel The Pursuit of Love, which is currently being filmed. But speculation mounted about their relationship when it was noticed that Dominic wasn't wearing his wedding ring.

Since, Dominic - and his wife Catherine FitzGerald - have insisted that their marriage is 'strong' and that they are 'very much still together'. In a bizarre appearance outside their home this morning, the couple kissed in front of press, and handed reporters a signed note which read: 'Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together'.

All this drama follows Lily's break up with Matt Smith earlier this summer. The pair had been together for several years - but in May, reports stated that Lily and Matt were giving their five-year relationship another try over lockdown. But, sadly, this didn't appear to work. The pair originally split following rumours Matt had grown close to The Crown co-star Claire Foy.

Here, we look at who else the Mamma Mia actress has dated - including her brief fling with Hollywood star Chris Evans.

Lily dated Jack Fox - yes, that's the brother of Laurence Fox - in 2011. The Fresh Meat star was her first high profile romance with an actor - and everyone she has been linked to since has also been in the profession. The couple broke up in 2011 on friendly terms, with Jack later saying in an interview that he would 'never have a bad word for her'.

Remember Pride And Prejudice And Zombies? No? That's probably a good thing. Anyway, Matt, 37, and Lily met on the set of the film and were together for five years. They rarely spoke about their relationship, but they did make quite a few red carpet appearances together. There was speculation the couple were engaged when she wore a diamond ring to the Baftas in 2018. They eventually broke up following claims Matt had embarked on a romance with his The Crown co-star Claire Foy.

The internet went into meltdown - and hearts across the world were broken - when Lily was linked with Captain America, Chris Evans. Lily and Chris, 39, were spied getting the same taxi back to London's Corinthia Hotel in July, after spending the night together in a private members' club in Mayfair.

They were then seen eating ice cream together at a London park - but alas, the dalliance isn't thought to have lasted any longer.

Lily and Dominic are currently co-starring in an adaptation of beloved novel The Pursuit of Love - and they were pictured in an embrace in Rome, where it looks like Dominic was kissing her neck. It also looks like he wasn't wearing his wedding ring.

Since, still not wearing his wedding ring, Dominic has told reporters that his marriage to Catherine FitzGerald is 'stronger than ever', with the pair kissing outside their house - and handing reporters a note with the statement: 'Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together'.

In The Pursuit of Love, Dominic is believed to be playing the father of Lily's character, Linda. They have worked together previously: Lily played Desdemona, and Dominic Iago, in a 2011 stage production of Othello.
