Lily James on confidence, criticism and starring in Rebecca | Full Disclosure | Bazaar UK

Lily James has some sage advice for anyone who's struggling to deal with their inner critic. "Talk to yourself like you're talking to your friend," she told us from the set of her Harper's Bazaar cover shoot. "You're your own worst critic, which is so ridiculous. Why can't we be kind to ourselves like we are to our friends?"

James takes on the role of the second Mrs de Winter in a new adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca - alongside Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas - and it was a role that was perfect for her to play at this particular time in her life, she explains.

"Rebecca's one of my favourite books, so when the opportunity came around to play the second Mrs de Winter I just couldn't resist it," she said. "She's such an extraordinary character. I was so intrigued by the disparity between how she thinks of herself and how she comes across. I think that's something that I've been exploring in myself so it was this golden moment to play her."

Watch the video interview in full here, in which the 31-year-old discusses dealing with criticism, tackling insecurities and the importance of being rebellious.

Umm what? Everything was fine until she called Rebecca brilliant. She was written to be a narcissistic malicious person who was deceitful and unfaithful and hurt her husband for the thrill of it. She wasn't some confident icon who did her own thing.
Lily James: "Rebecca disobeyed her husband, had affairs, and was basically just brilliant [loud laugh]" 😳😳😳

Just found out she's having an affair with Dominic West.
This lady is talking about growing as a person when she knowing has been messing around with a married man. The pair of them are disgusting!

Wait. So basically you are willing to wreck a marriage so that you can find yourself and learn from your mistakes??
Calling Rebecca a "free, wild woman who breaks every rule" is really putting it mildly 😬
I've read the book like 10 times... Rebecca is horrible, cruel (against disabled people, animals and generally anyone!)
She shows us the power and privilege physical beauty, a good position in society and wealth can give, allowing her to do harm and still being praised by all who knew her.
Maxim was a traditionalist man and eventual criminal which I do not condone, but he did NOT force either of his wives to submit, so there was no reason to "disobey him" 🙄
The second Mrs.De winter is initially young, extremely insecure and shy, she is tortured in her own mind thanks to her sense of inferiority, but she overcomes all that to become a strong woman, not like Rebecca ever was, still gentle, soft and not all all rebellious, but by no means weak or inferior.
It seems like Lily has a very modern and narrow view about the book and the characters, so I don't know what to expect from the movie...
Sigh, there always will be the iconic Joan Fontaine film (great portrayal of what introverted, shy and insecure people go through)

Can a company this big really not afford decent audio equipment?
I'm confused she sounds like she's playing Rebecca. Her character is Mrs. de Winter, not Rebecca... And how is a woman who has affairs with married men admirable exactly?

Alexis Co.:
This girl needs JESUS and professional help. ASAP!
I wonder how feminists are going to try and defend her and portay her as the victim after she tried to ruin a marriage!

she seems like a sweet girl even we don't know her in person , yes she cheated on a married man Dominic West , but most of all .... the Rebecca movie was quite bad ..... I watched it on Netflix and was quite disappointing . It was very rushed in the 2/3 of the movie and the characters in the movie were not engaging , quite a hollow experience

I really love this girl but seeing those news about her having an affair with a married man, I don't know anymore 💔 very disappointing. Hope you can come to your senses lily Married guy is off limits, there's a lot of young men that is available. Isn't it obvious that he is NOT A MAN? Cheating with you is no good for both of you. If he can't be a MAN for the women he marry, he can't be a MAN for you. Come to your senses Lily.

Lily if you're reading this, I want you to know that you are my favourite actress, I've seen all your films, I heard what you're going through, all of it, and I wanna let you know that I often think of you and hope things will get better 💖💖☺😔
She so refreshing! Cant wait to see Rebecca! 😍💗

Tania Smith:
I ask all of us to look in the mirror and have an honest talk about who and what we want to be, then ask for forgiveness. Step away from things that will harm others or ourselves. Try and change what we did wrong by going forward and not repeating it. That goes for everybody living on this earth. Above all prayer. Praying can help and sets off miracles everywhere, even if we weren't aware of it to begin with.

Lolly Lunaxouk:
We as a society are so quick to attack 'the other woman' but she did not cheat, she did not break her partners trust, we do not know what has been said between them - how do we know he didnt tell her that he and his wife we on the outs. He had the affair, he cheated on his wife. He is the problem but yet again he will waltz scott free and Lily will bare the brunt. People are so quick to trust the media when the media is the problem, they lie and sell us their agenda and we are supposed to just accept it as gospel. Don't judge others until you know all the facts.

To everyone criticizing Lily James for the recent scandal - Dominic West is 51 and has been married for 10 years. She's only like 30. He willingly consented to having an affair with her - as a married man with children. He has 20 years more time to have matured than her and should be held to a higher standard. He is equally if not more accountable if his marriage ends. She is not entirely to blame.

Okay lay off everybody. Cheating is more his responsibility than hers. Maybe he told her all the classic lies that he was separated or is divorcing or god knows. You don’t know and probably will never know so stop judging. Blaming it all on her is incredibly sexist and unfair.
