Outlander star Caitriona Balfe discusses staying grounded while being swept up in the madness that is starring in one of television's most popular shows in an exclusive interview for Irish Tatler's July issue.

Irish Tatler's July cover star Caitriona Balfe sat down with Shauna O'Halloran to talk about the "wild ride" of stardom she has experienced over the last few years, revealing what it is really like on the set of Outlander, how she remains down-to-earth, and how it feels to witness the #MeToo movement unfold up-close as a Hollywood actress.

She also confirmed that she is to start filming on a new sure-to-be blockbuster alongside Christian Bale and Matt Damon this summer in LA. "It's a lot of fast cars, hot men, and me!" the actress said when quizzed about the movie, which will be a biopic of mechanic and race car driver Ken Miles set in the 1960s.

In the exclusive system, Balfe also describes how her time as a young model affected her self-esteem. "Your confidence and your self-esteem is in the toilet after you've been in the business that long," said the star, who was once ranked in the top 20 models in the world, walking the catwalk for Chanel, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and more. "Most models I know have terrible self-esteem, which is a crazy thing."  

Caitriona also shares details of her wedding plans in the issue, which hits newsstands today, and donned some of this summer's most romantic dresses by Valentino and Louis Vuitton in an exclusive shoot.

Also in the July issue of Irish Tatler is our ultimate holiday shopping special, with shoes, bags and bikinis to wear by the pool, the lowdown on the latest tanning waters, fashion buys for a summer in the city and our Weddings Special, featuring everything the budding bride to be needs to know.
