Lily James ‘pulled out’ of press interviews with ‘no explanation’ after Dominic West kiss scandal

The actress has cancelled multiple interviews since the scandal erupted

Lily James and Dominic West have dominated headlines following their trip to Rome

Lily James reportedly “pulled out” of press interviews with “no explanation” last week, after those photos of her and Dominic West hit headlines.

The actors were papped kissing and looking loved-up in Italy last Monday, which sparked concerns for Dominic’s marriage.

Dominic and his Irish wife Catherine FitzGerald have since insisted their marriage is “strong” – but Lily has remained silent over the scandal.

The actress is currently in the middle of a press run for her starring role in Rebecca alongside Armie Hammer, but she’s pulled out of a number of interviews since the scandal hit headlines.


According to PageSix, Lily attended a Hollywood Foreign Press event last Tuesday, the day after the photos were published, but she reportedly backed out of interviews “at the 11th hour”.

An insider said: “It was a two-day junket. On the first day, Lily was joined by the producers who it seemed were there to protect her from anyone asking questions about the photos.”

“The next day, when members of the HFPA and others were due to talk to her, she pulled out at the 11th hour. There was no explanation.”

The news comes after Lily also cancelled scheduled appearances on The Today Show in the US, and The Graham Norton Show in the UK.
