Lucy Boynton Gets Candid About Boyfriend Rami Malek's Popularity in Public

Lucy Boynton is on the cover of the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Bohemian Rhapsody star had to say…

On feeling embarrassed when filming her first sex scene: “I hated it so much. But I had Helen Hunt directing me. I said, ‘I’m a bit shy,’ and she just [looked] at me. And it was like, sorry, I do get to keep my T-shirt and tracksuit on. But I was quite embarrassed.”

On coordinating with Rami Malek at the Critics’ Choice Awards: “I was supposed to wear a different Gucci dress, but it needed tailoring, so I had to swap. And I always leave earlier than him. I get ready with my team, then see him at the event. So it was only when we were sitting down that we did that kind of look across, and it was like, Ha! But really, I don’t think we want to be that couple, the coordinated duo! Being ‘thing one’ and ‘thing two’ is not the trajectory we’re aiming for.”

On Rami Malek’s popularity in public: “I mean, you’d never grab a complete stranger in the street. And I think there’s a sense of ownership. It’s OK to just come up to someone, with your camera already out, and disregard whoever they’re with. It happened when we were with my mother, and we were just shoved out the way. It’s quite shocking.”

On learning it’s okay to take her time building her career like her boyfriend: “[He’s] been doing it longer. And I think the main thing is to take your time. I want to do this for the rest of my life, and it’s easy to think that you have to keep the momentum going, a phrase you hear a lot. It’s tempting once you’ve done one thing to quickly sign on to something else, so you have something to talk about. I’ve learnt that’s not the case, and that you can take your time to do really good quality pieces, rather than just doing everything.”
