“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” star Lily James covers the August 2018 issue of Allure magazine photographed by Sharif Hamza and styled by Beth Fenton.



On no one ever recognizing her: “I can just hang out in bowling alleys with loads of kids,” she says, with an air of bemusement. “I don’t think people expect to see Cinderella in jeans bowling at midday or in a pub having a pint.”

On enjoying life and not letting work get in the way: “You could go home early and sleep and not drink beer and not have a club sandwich when you get in at 2 in the morning,” James says, taking a bite of one of the French fries we ordered at some point after pounding shots. “But that’s not as fun. I don’t want to look back and think, I wish I’d made more of my life and the people in it. I don’t want that to be the cost of being an actor. It’s not worth it.”

On ERA 50:50 [a campaign for equal representation and equal pay in the entertainment industry launched by a group of women in the U.K.]: “It’s not just actresses moaning for more money,” she says. “It’s about the direct impact on our communities, and that extends to all things with diversity and women. It’s got to be fixed.” She frowns and says adamantly, “I’ve got to get more involved.”
