Billie Piper displays on ‘therapeutic time’ with Chris Evans | Leisure

Billie Piper has described her marriage to Chris Evans as “a very healing time”.

The 38-year-old actress, who was in a relationship with Virgin Radio DJ from 2000 to 2004, admitted that she was “happiest” during their time together, despite the public perception of her party lifestyle as “reckless”.

She told the ‘Changes With Annie Macmanus’ podcast, “Even though our lives were wildly wild compared to other people’s lives, I felt like I lived many of my college years or something because we spent a lot of time have traveled and drinking and meeting people I would otherwise not have had access to.

“Also, I was so withdrawn before I met him. So it felt like a very healing time, even though the world viewed it as a ruthless time.

“It’s just crazy to think that when I was the happiest as a teenager, everyone thought I was the saddest.”

Billie, who has had a happy relationship with musician Johnny Lloyd since 2016 and had her first single “Because we want” when she was only 15, admitted that she still has “fond memories” of her time with Chris.

She added, “I always have very good memories and lots of love and warmth (for that time). It felt like a really important moment in my life.”

Meanwhile, Billie reflected on past lessons, including her previous relationships with 5ive singer Ritchie Neville and her wedding to Chris in Las Vegas when she was only 18 years old.

Although she is growing up quickly, the star feels that her wild past helped her later in life, as she sees it as a mother and actress to get “quite a few” things “out of her system” at a young age.

She admitted, “I took a lot of things out of my system at a young age, which meant that when I became an actor, I could focus.

“There’s a lot to be thankful for. I’m not sure I would choose it for my own children, but it taught me a lot and helped me focus on what I actually want to achieve, and not to be seduced by the fame that comes with it. “
