BEAMING happily in the Californian sunshine, Lily James enjoys a lunch date with her new beau – well-connected Hollywood party organiser Andrei Gillott. The actress, who only recently split from her rocker boyfriend Michael Shuman, met Gillott at last month’s Baftas. Gillott, who is a close friend of Leonardo DiCaprio, took Ms James, 33, to a Los Angeles sushi restaurant on Friday. Dressed in a £1,070 Versace denim jacket and white culottes, the Cinderella star giggled with the nightclub host and took a call on her mobile phone as he smoked a cigarette. The Mail on Sunday can reveal they met through friends at a Netflix Bafta after-party on February 19 at London’s Chiltern Firehouse. Ms James, who split from Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Shuman in January after two years, has been linked to several stars including Matt Smith and Dominic West. London-born Gillott, 38, was tour director for Guns N’ Roses, has dated singer Lana Del Rey and is one of DiCaprio’s ‘posse’ of pals, along with Tobey Maguire and David Blaine.
