Lily James discusses the power dynamic of men and women and the finding of comedies in trauma


Lily James and Armie Hammer have spoken about their upcoming film Rebecca after actress Dominic Cooper's canoodling scandal.

In an interview with Ali Plumb on Radio 1's film podcast, the 31-year-old actress reflected on the "addicting love story about thriller romance" she starred in, and also discussed the importance of finding comedy to "undercut" dark moments.

Last week, Lily caused shock waves around the globe when she was seen approaching married Dominic, 50, during a trip to Rome, just days before he defiantly insisted that his marriage to Catherine Fitzgerald, 49 everything was fine.

Lily was interviewed with Armie, her co-star in the new Rebecca – a Netflix adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's novel in which she plays a woman who marries a wealthy widower, but his home is haunted by the memory of his late wife becomes.

Speaking of du Maurier's novel and the film that follows, she said, & # 39; It's totally addicting read and story, and there are twists and turns that are so shocking and twisted in themselves and morally everywhere …

"You are so drawn into this addicting love story of thriller romance and there is also this amazing overall view of men and women and the power dynamic. It is very clever and tells a light in a commercial story. The book itself was a huge commercial success. & # 39;

The group discussed the comical words used by Keeley Hawes' character Beatrice Lacy and how they helped ease the pain of Lily's character.

Lily said, & # 39; We really wanted more of the outrageous words in – Keeley Hawes says bosh. These comedic moments have a lot of undercut. & # 39;

Nick replied, "It's important that your character be traumatized every day. Thank goodness for a little tickety tock and a little stiff upper lip."

Lily brought things into real life and replied, "Yes, thank God for that in the truest sense of the word and life in general."

Although the podcast was released on Monday, it is unclear when it was recorded. Lily has retired from scheduled television appearances on Friday following the Graham Norton Show and Monday's Today Show in America.

It comes after Lily and Dominic, who both star in an upcoming BBC series together and spent a two-day vacation in Italy, touring Rome on a scooter, and Dominic seemed to bend over at some point and kiss Lily's neck.

Most importantly, Dominic did not wear his wedding ring during his vacation with Lily and days later he set up a united front with his wife and declared that their marriage was "strong".

Dominic and Lily were seen "kissing and cuddling" in a very leisurely manner on their British Airways flight to the UK.

They were seen wearing face masks as they walked through the terminal in Rome to catch their flight to the UK.

A source has claimed the couple wasted no time starting their romantic weekend and were "on top of each other" while traveling, reports The Sun.

A source told the publication: “At first I thought she was his daughter because I knew he was around 50 and you could tell she was much younger. Within minutes of the plane departing, they began kissing and cuddling after they both removed their masks.

They looked like a couple headed for a dirty weekend and they were all on top of each other. They kissed in French and there was a lot of lacings. & # 39;

Lily was seen resting on Dominic's shoulder once before taking her flight back to the UK. After arriving in town last week, Lily and Dominic took viewers by surprise when they appeared to be kissing while eating outside.

Dominic is best known for playing Noah Solloway in Showtime drama The Affair, which examines the emotional impact of an extramarital relationship between his character and a younger woman named Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson).

According to a source, MailOnline Dominic and Lily spent two nights in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with panoramic views over the city and a two-minute walk from the Spanish Steps.

They only left the hotel for a couple of hours on an electric scooter around the Spanish Steps and Piazza di Pietra. During lunch, they joined their friend and joint manager Angharad Wood at a downtown restaurant.

At the end of lunch Lily sat next to Dominic and couldn't resist cuddling and caressing her neck.

It was announced last Thursday that Lily had finally broken up with 37-year-old The Crown star Matt Smith after a failed attempt to restart their relationship after a five-year romance.

Since the pictures of Dominic and Lily came to light in Rome, he has shown defiant with his wife Catherine Fitzgerald, 49.

Just hours after telling friends that she was "heartbroken" because of the pictures that went viral, she agreed to take part in a bizarre show of unity with The Affair Star in which he told reporters: "Our marriage is strong and we are very much still together".

The mother of four carefully stepped out of the marriage home in Chippenham, Wiltshire with her husband on Tuesday and hid her ring finger in her jeans pocket.

Catherine purposely raised her head and kissed Dominic passionately for the cameras as they emerged through a rusty gate out of their sprawling little house.

Dominic seemed to have a rather smug look on his face as he made it clear that he was still not wearing his wedding ring. He wore the same outfit he wore on his day with Lily and added a brown jacket.

With steady smiles on their faces, he and Catherine handed the photographer a piece of paper on which the words in his handwriting were repeated: "Our marriage is strong and we are very much still together," with their signatures underneath.
