Billie Piper ‘needed to fall apart’ in her 20s after Chris Evans marriage split

Billie Piper has opened up about a period in a life which she has said was necessary for her to be where she is now.

The 38-year-old actress has said she needed to “fall apart” in her 20s, after her marriage to DJ Chris Evans fell apart.

Billie shot to fame as a teenage singer and married Evans when she was 18, separating three years later.

Speaking to Red magazine, Billie said: “My 20s were quite wild, and that was likely to be a reaction to (teenage years spent) working all the hours that God sent, being very performative and treated sort of like a flashy sales girl, a really young one.”

She continued: “I really needed to fall apart in that sort of reckless 20s way.

“To not care about looking put-together every waking moment of my life or saying the wrong things as a role model to children.”

The Rare Beasts director and actress said she had issues in previous relationships “from being on my own a lot when I was very young”.

It left her with an “extreme desire to feel loved and safe”, she added.

Billie continued: “I’ve (since) learned about attachment issues and co-dependency, which I never saw as a problem, until I did that work on myself.”

Billie, whose second husband was actor Laurence Fox, said she does not know the “key” to the success of her current relationship with musician Johnny Lloyd.

“Part of me doesn’t ever just want to see it as this rational thing where I’m making sure I have date night on a Wednesday, although I think there are merits in doing that.”

She continued: “But the thought immediately makes me feel a bit heavy-hearted and bored. I don’t know if I can ever really be fully practical and healthy around love.

“I think dedicating your life to pursuing happiness is not that helpful and you’re likely to be disappointed a lot.

“(Happiness) is fleeting, but when it’s happening, I like to be fully conscious of it and sit with it for as long as I can.

“In the past, people would say, ‘Just go for a walk or look at the stream or watch the way the trees move’, and I was so judgmental of that advice. Now, I realise it really does the trick.”
