Why we love Lily Collins
Lily Collins has a famous dad. Truth be told, she’s probably a bit tired of hearing that by now. But when your dad is slap-headed pop superstar Phil Collins, it's hard to break free of the gravitational pull that surrounds his enormo-success.
Still, lithe’n’lovely Lily is making a very decent fist of becoming a star in her own right – and without any help from Daddy. She became a professional journalist while still a teenager, writing for the likes of Elle Girl, Seventeen, Teen Vogue and the Los Angeles Times. She’s also done a spot of TV presenting and high-fashion modelling, but it seems like movie-making is where her future lies, having already co-starred with the likes of Julia Roberts, Jennifer Connolly and Sandra Bullock. Big, big things are in store.
She’s been waiting for this moment, all her life. Oh lord.
