The wives and girlfriends of Hollywood's hottest male stars can breathe a sigh of relief.

Lily James' next film role does not involve any romantic interest.

The 31-year-old English actress will play Peggy Jo Tallas, a Texan outlaw who held up a number of banks in disguise as a man in the 1990s.

But while the armed robber was no stranger to adrenaline, her love life – unlike Miss James' – apparently did not exist.

Ms. James, who dated The Crown star Matt Smith from 2014 to 2019, raised her eyebrows by making close friends with two of her co-stars in recent productions.

She was featured in Daphne Du Maurier's most recent Netflix adaptation of Rebecca in a series of hot hugs with the social network star Armie Hammer – but it was her off-camera chemistry that led to the gossip on set Set led that they had become an object. Mr. Hammer separated from his wife this summer.

Then, three weeks ago, Mrs. James was seen in Rome scribbling with married actor Dominic West – her co-star in the BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love.

Mr. West and his wife Catherine FitzGerald later showed an awkward solidarity outside their Wiltshire home in which they posted a note that read "Our marriage is strong and we are still very much together."

Ms. James' upcoming film, Peggy Jo, has been described as "Bonnie But Without the Clyde" and will be shot on location in Texas and the southern United States early next year.

The action begins in May 1991 when Tallas – in her typical disguise consisting of a Stetson hat and a fake beard – begins her crime.

After a robbery in 2005, then 60-year-old Tallas was shot after pointing a wrong weapon at the police.

Peggy Jo is expected to be in theaters in late 2021.
