Evangeline Lilly is one of those super-hot celebrities that everyone wishes they could be with, but it seems like she would like to change everyone's mind as quickly as possible. In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Evangeline lets the world in on her unique outlook:
She admitted: "I really don't want to be mysterious. Women in this business are expected to put forth a poised and perfect persona.
"I want people to see that I'm an ordinary-Joe girl. I blow my nose after work, I drool in my sleep and my s**t stinks."
Meanwhile, Evangeline has been branded a "potty-mouth" by co-star and rumoured boyfriend Dominic Monaghan, while co-star Matthew Fox, who plays hunky doctor Jack, thinks she's "weird".
The actress revealed to America's Rolling Stone magazine: "He's constantly looking at me and saying, 'Evie, do you realise you're really weird?' And then he'll just walk away."
She's also maybe a little crazy, adding:
"One night, we had all gone bowling," says Evangeline Lilly, 26, who plays the show's female lead, the beautiful but mysterious criminal Kate. "Most people left, so it was myself, Matthew [Fox], Jorge [Garcia] and Dominic [Monaghan] -- three goofy, out-there guys. So we're in the middle of a parking lot in Kailua, daring each other to do things. Jorge turns to me and says, 'I'll give you twenty dollars if you pee in that garbage can.'" Lilly flashes her America's-sweetheart grin. "Thirty seconds later, I've got my pants down and my bum hanging into this garbage can, and he has to give me twenty dollars."
Lilly laughs loudly. "I don't have a lot of inhibition," she adds, somewhat unnecessarily.
And her secret boyfriend, Dominic Monaghan added:
"She's a Christian, but she's a pottymouth," says cast mate Monaghan, formerly known as a Lord of the Rings hobbit. (The two are reportedly dating, although neither will confirm this.)
"Over and over again," Lilly says, "I've been called a walking oxymoron. I do things that you wouldn't associate with a good little Christian girl. People say I'm half-boy, half-girl." Before I can object that the visual evidence suggests otherwise, she continues, "I love style and dressing up, but I've also got competitive testosterone and I'm incredibly stubborn. When I'm going for a jog and I come up behind a guy on his bike, I try to beat him, even if it kills me."
Okay, that was a lot of text, and probably pretty redundant. But just to send the message home that Evangeline Lilly is a free spirit, here she is running barefoot in a bikini.
