Lily James33, and Matt Smith, 39, may have had an unexpected encounter on Sept. 30, more than two years after their split. The ex-lovers were both spotted partying at the Chiltern Firehouse, a luxury restaurant and hotel in London’s West End. Lily and Matt apparently stayed out until about 5 a.m. when they returned home separately within minutes of each other. It’s unclear if the former couple saw and spoke at the party.

Lily wore a gorgeous red dress that showed off her sexy body to the party. The Pam and Tommy The actress kept her coppery red hair in a neat bun, while dropping a few braids down the side of her face. Lily wore a pair of silver earrings and light red lipstick.

Matt looked handsome in a black jacket he wore over a blue shirt. The Dragon House star also sported a pair of black jeans and a black beanie. Again, there is no photographic evidence that Matt and Lily crossed paths at the party. For all we know, the exes might be on good terms now!

The British actors started dating in 2014 after meeting while filming Pride and prejudice and zombieswhich they followed with a romantic encounter at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2014. Lily and Matt made their official red carpet debut as a couple at the 2015 premiere of Cinderella. They fueled breakup reports after five years together when they were pictured having a super intense lunch in London in December 2019. The pair appeared to have patched things up in March 2020 when they were spotted doing a friendly walk together in London. But their romance had unfortunately come to an end at that point.

Lily and Matt are both in new relationships now. Lily went Instagram official with her new boyfriend, rockstar Michael Shuman37, in February 2022. Matt is dating a businesswoman Caroline Brady since at least May 2021. Ironically, Caroline’s sister Millie Brady co-starred in Pride and prejudice and zombies with Matt and Lily.
