COUPONERS UNITED – Have you ever dreamed of being Cinderella?
Not just putting on the dress and the shoes, but actually BE Cinderella? The dress, the shoes, the prince, the castle, the pumpkin, the love, the loss, all of it? We had the chance to speak with Cinderella herself. Lily James IS Cinderella in the new Cinderella Movie. She tells us what it’s like to be every little girls dream!
Let me start by saying that Lily James is even more beautiful in person than she is on screen. Flawless skin, perfect hair, and all the grace and elegance you’d expect from Cinderella. She entered the room with such grace and gave us all a warm welcome!
Question: What was your initial reaction when you found out you got the role of Cinderella?
“Ken rang me himself and I screamed so loudly I’m sure I burst his eardrum. He said “I’d like you–, I want you to be my Cinderella.” And I just, my heart, I was on set and I screamed. And Laura and Michelle came running over and, and they knew I’d been doing this torturous audition process and they’re like, ‘what is it, what is it?’ And then Ken was like, ‘you’re not allowed to tell anyone.’ So, I was like, ‘oh, nothing, nothing.’ And then, later that day, Hugh Bonneville announced it at the Downton dining room table. It was really sweet.”
QUESTION: Can you tell us about how you felt when you first saw it (the dress), you tried it on, what it was like?
“The dress is insane. When I first put it on, there’s a scene from Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts where she looks, she puts this dress on and she looks in the mirror and, I think Richard Gere is looking really handsome somewhere and she just goes like swoosh, swoosh. She makes this sound and I put it on and I felt like Julia Roberts, it was just the best feeling ever. I was so nervous about this bit of the movie ‘cause it’s the bit where she’s the princess. It’s the, it’s like the moment, and I think, ‘how can anyone live up to that?’
Really, you know, it’s this fairy tale, it’s this sort of thing that’s very far removed from me. And then I put on that gown and I just felt transformed and it felt like a suit of honor. But, it was really hard to wear and it was incredibly tight and incredibly, it had a life of it’s own basically.”Continue Reading
