Evangeline Lilly: Men Stopped Talking to Me When I Got Famous!

Evangeline Lilly: Men Stopped Talking to Me When I Got Famous!

Evangeline Lilly looks smart and chic in this new shot from her feature for DuJour magazine‘s January 2014 issue, on newsstands now!

Here is what the 34-year-old The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug actress had to share with the mag:

On people approaching her: “Once I became a public figure, that ended. Men stopped talking to me. Because they think, ‘Why would she want to date me?’ But the irony of it is, that’s exactly why you’d want to date them—everyone needs something to ground them in their life, and often for public figures, that’s their partner.”

On where she was in life before Lost: “When I got the job on Lost, I was a broke university student living in the crappiest part of town, with a duct-taped back window on a broken-down car. I existed on peanut butter and tea. When somebody said, ‘I will pay you a lot of money to come and do this,’ it was worth it to make the sacrifice for a certain amount of time in order to have the flexibility that comes from having more financial freedom.”’

On playing a non-Tolkien character in The Hobbit: “There are a lot of forums online where fans are furious. They’re venting that anger and expressing themselves, and I just feel like, more power to you—get out there and express your opinions… I’ve had people who have seen the film who have daughters thank me for being part of it, because otherwise their daughters would have had hours of cinema without a single female character onscreen. In 2013, that’s unacceptable.”
