Evangeline Lilly is a bright pop of color on the cover of Ocean Drive magazine’s January 2015 issue.
Here’s what the 35-year-old The Hobbit actress had to share with the mag:
On if she’ll marry Norman Kali: “Every other 16-year-old girl wanted to look at bridal magazines; I could not have been more bored with the notion. I have an American son and an American partner, so marriage might logistically make sense at one point. My partner is a stay-at-home father, so if he wants to be on my health plan, or taxwise, or maybe on paper we want to have our I’s dotted and our T’s crossed, but emotionally neither of us really feels the need for it. We love each other today, and we hope we’ll love each other tomorrow. In my world, I don’t believe in forever promises. I don’t think it’s realistic.”
On wanting more kids: “What I wanted originally was six kids. I frickin’ love being pregnant. I’m one of the lucky women who just had a blissful pregnancy, but I wanted to adopt four. My partner and I have really been through the ringer in the adoption world and it’s hard, so we’ll see what happens. Life is magically beautiful, and it brings you what is perfect.”
On figuring out fame after Lost: “Fame didn’t fit well with me. It just didn’t work for me. What’s happened over the years is I’ve had to find ways to come to terms with it and understand it in a new way, and not turn my nose up to it and think that it’s all sort of perverse and distorted. I had to learn not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.”
