Evangeline Lilly Reveals What She Has an 'Enormous Desire' to Do

Evangeline Lilly is on the cover of Shape magazine’s July/August 2018 issue.

Here’s what the Ant-Man & the Wasp star had to share…

On what she wants in life: “I’m a strange mix of someone who is quite reclusive and comfortable with very little but driven professionally. I don’t need to be famous, but I do have an enormous desire to influence people and connect with them. It gives me satisfaction to know that I’ve touched others.”

On doing meaningful work: “Sometimes I wonder if I’ve taken on too much, but I just want to live out as much potential as I can.”

On how she stays grounded: “We have constant distraction and choice, which can be very destabilizing and get in the way of experiencing life. So it’s important to engage in activities regularly that reunite you with yourself. For some people it’s prayer, reading, meditation, or a breathing practice. For others it’s a dinner party.”
