LILY COLLINS
Opens Up To Glamour

Lily Collins is looking like one very pretty lady on the cover of Glamour Magazine this month. Inside, the actress talks about her friendship with Jennifer Lawrence, her career and of course whether or not she dresses up for the paps (because no one in Hollywood does, right?). Check out the highlights from her interview below:

Her dad didn’t make her famous: “I always wanted to do it on my own. I never wanted anyone making phone calls. A name can open doors, but there’s a quote I like: ‘Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.’”

Who is her mentor? “My mom. It has nothing to do with acting. She guides me through my personal life, telling me to experiment. She lets me borrow her vintage. She has Chanel and eighties stuff from Yohji Yamamoto and Vivienne Westwood that she got when vintage wasn’t cool. She’d wear them to events with my dad, and everyone would ask what she had on; when she said ‘vintage,’ they’d go, ‘Oh, that’s nice,’ and, you know, turn the corner.”

On The Mortan Instruments: “I’m so excited! I had read and really loved the books. The fans [in Toronto, during filming] were amazing. They’d bring us cookies, mugs, tea, drawings, everything. I want to make sure I live up to their expectations as Clary.”

On JLaw: “She’s a friend; she’s awesome. The choices Jennifer has made have been really interesting. And I loved how she carried herself after her trip [going up onstage] at the Oscars. I was like, ‘You go, girl!’”

Does she dress for the paps? “Even in L.A., where everyone’s in yoga pants, I’ve never been the girl to run around in sweats. I love fashion and always have something put together, but I won’t wear anything specifically to be photographed in. I have become more cautious of making funny faces in public.””
