Newly single Lily James described herself as a ‘serial relationshipper’ and has claimed guys are ‘rubbish’ on the dating app Hinge.
It comes just weeks after her reported split from her bass-playing boyfriend of two years Michael Shuman was revealed.
The actress, 33, appeared on the Capital Breakfast show on Monday morning to discuss her dating life.
Hosts Roman Kemp and Sian Welby told Lily: ‘We talk about love life quite a lot on this show’
Sian went on to say: ‘We do, and we quite laugh at our own previous experiences that went horribly wrong. Your character Zoe is very unlucky in love. Can you relate to this, is there any, in your past when you go, I’m cringing still’

Lily then explained: ‘I cringe at most things I do. Yeah I’ve been a sort of serial relationshipper, so I’ve not had any crazy dating stories however I did go on my mates’ hinge the other day and I just despaired. I mean come on!
Roman asked: ‘What do you mean?’ to which Lily replied: ‘The guys, they were rubbish’
Sian then asked Lily: ‘What were some of the icks?’
Lily quipped: ‘I’m sure some of the girls are c*ap too but men are worse. There’s a line in the film where my character is looking at this guy and he’s got a sentimental quote and she’s like “He’s fit enough that I’ll overlook the sentimental quote” which is “every day is a new rainbow” but that would be a bit of a turn off for me.’
Sian noted that ‘Sentimental quotes are out’ with Lily adding: ‘Not on the first look at someone, a bit of banter, I sound like I’m on Love Island!’
It comes as Lily has reportedly split from Michael after a two year romance.
The pair called time on their relationship after growing apart in recent months, claims The Sun.
The couple were first linked in February 2021 after they were spotted sharing a kiss outside a boutique hotel in Suffolk while she filmed What’s Love Got To Do With It?.
They then made their red carpet debut at the Oscars 2022 where they looked loved-up.
A source told the publication: ‘Lily and Michael have grown apart in recent months and have now decided to end their relationship.
‘They just couldn’t make it work as a couple, but they both wish each other the best for the future.’
Lily explained: ‘I cringe at most things I do. Yeah I’ve been a sort of serial relationshipper, so I’ve not had any crazy dating stories however I did go on my mates’ hinge the other day and I just despaired. I mean come on!’
The actress’s relationship with Michael initially came as a shock to fans of the pair, as Lily is known for her family friendly roles in Downton Abbey, Cinderella and Mamma Mia.
Meanwhile, Michael is a member of Queens Of The Stone Age, the band notorious for on-stage nudity and claims of drug and alcohol abuse.
In August 2012 Lily sparked speculation Michael had proposed as she headed out in Melrose Avenue, California with a gold ring on her engagement finger.
However a representative of Lily said of speculation regarding a proposal from Michael: ‘This is 100% not true’.
The couple were first linked in 2021 after they were spotted sharing a kiss outside a boutique hotel.
The American star was said to be staying at the hotel where Lily was quarantining with cast and crew for the film What’s Love Got To Do With It?.
An eyewitness told the Daily Mail at the time: ‘Lily’s driver turned up just after 9am, then she and Michael emerged from the hotel together a few minutes later. They were laughing and joking and looked very happy together.’
While in March 2021, the American rocker was thought to be staying with her at her new £3million home in north London while she was filming in the UK.
Lily was then seen visiting Michael’s parents Ira Shuman, a former executive production manager for Walt Disney, who has worked on films such as The Wedding Singer and Strange Days, and Janet Shuman, in April.
The Mamma Mia star has kept her personal life private since she became the subject of worldwide scrutiny when images emerged showing her and actor Dominic West enjoying an al fresco lunch with their mutual agent, Angharad Wood, in October 2020.

They enjoyed a two-day vacation in Italy where they were seen riding on a scooter through Rome, and Dominic appeared to at one point lean over and kiss Lily’s neck.
TV and film star Lily previously dated The Crown star Matt Smith, 40, on and off for five years, with the relationship said to be over just weeks before she was pictured with Dominic.
In July 2020, the actress was pictured heading back to Chris Evans’ London hotel after partying into the early hours at private members’ venue, Mark’s Club in Mayfair.
Lily has raised eyebrows in the past by forging close friendships with her co-stars in recent productions – Armie Hammer in Rebecca and Dominic in BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love.
