Last year, James revealed he had split from his long-term girlfriend Ahna O’Reilly after dating for five years. The 34-year-old admitted the long-distance had become too much for them as he was studying English at Yale University, in New Haven, Connecticut, while she stayed in Los Angeles.

‘‘That [relationship] lasted about four or five years. We’d been living together in LA then I came to New York to go to school for two years,” he said.  ‘‘Then I signed up for more school at Yale. I think that was it for her,’’ he added.
