They’re both happily settled in relationships, so when Sam Claflin and Lily Collins offer you dating advice, you sit up and listen.
Lily, the 25-year-old daughter of musician Phil Collins, is currently starring in ‘Love, Rosie’, playing a character that gets royally screwed over by a guy.
More specifically, he gets her pregnant and then jets out of the country to bring up their daughter on her own. Charming.
Asked whether she had any words of wisdom for her unlucky-in-love character, the Guildford-born actress said to not even give him the time of day.
“You’re worth more than that. Ain’t nobody got time for that!” she told Yahoo Celebrity.
“No guy is worth you sitting around getting messed about with. Especially if you have a daughter. You move to someone that will respect you more.”
Actor Sam Claflin, 28, on the other hand suggested that there’s something to be taken from broken relationships, and he told us that he’s had to offer advice to many of his guy friends that have been in that situation in the past.
“Everyone has been in that relationship where you’re completely blind. You know it’s a disaster from the outside but from the inside, you’re like ‘We’re so in love!’” he told us.
“You kind of need to go through experiences like that – as long as they don’t get married! Sometimes seeing [your friends] get hurt is a good thing.
“Some people need to experience that and then when they’re on the other end, they’re like ‘Oh my God, what was I doing?’”
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay star is happily married to actress Laura Haddock, who he wed after 18 months of dating.
In previous interviews, he’s revealed that he knew he was going to marry her the moment he met her. Jealous, much?
But it’s not been smooth sailing for the Brit-born actor, who revealed that he has been cheated on in the past.
WHO WOULD DO THAT TO FINNICK?
“I have [been cheated on] – it was not comfortable. I’ve definitely been in [that situation],” he said.
Lily Collins was more schtum about the whole two-timing thing, but suggested she’d been in a broken relationship that she believed in – Jamie Campbell Bower, perhaps?
“You can be in something and not be able to see it from an outside perspective,” she said.
But the pair agreed that starting off as friends before embarking on a relationship is a good way to make it last.
And Sam that the exciting thing about a new relationship – whether it’s with a friend or someone you’ve just met – is that initial phase where you get to know them in a whole new light.
“I think with relationships, sometimes the most exciting part of a relationship is getting to know one another and getting to explore one another,” said Sam.
“I think with a friendship, you already know everything there is to know. What can go wrong? Everything’s out there!”
“[And] actually what’s enjoyable is you get to explore said person in a new light.”
We think we love him a little bit more!
