Lily Collins: 'I Don't Reach For Fame'

Lily Collins: 'I Don't Reach For Fame'

Lily Collins finds the sunset on a beach in this new shot from the March 2012 issue of Nylon magazine.

The 22-year-old actress opened up about fashion heroes, making movies in her head and not really going after the ‘fame.’ Check it:

On playing Snow White: “Growing up in the English countryside, I would go out into the fields and create my own stories, and I would run around as if I was in a movie. That’s why for me, playing Snow White was a crazy dream come true, because I’ve always been someone who would read books and then go and make a movie in my head.”

On life after Mirror Mirror: “I have no idea what will happen after Mirror Mirror but I love that I can still do what I want to do on a weekend, like go to the flea market. I don’t ever want that to stop. I won’t want to suddenly have to sacrifice parts of myself, and I don’t feel like I am, knowing that people are going to be more interested in my personal life. I never did go out and party! I never did do the whole drinking, drugs…That wasn’t ever me and is never gonna be me.”

On fame: “I don’t reach for fame; I don’t want to acquire whatever ‘fame’ is. I just want to be able to continue doing what I love to do.”

On her fashion hero: “She’s [former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld] one of my heroes! She told me never to touch my eyebrows because they are what make me stand out. I love her work. It was so amazing just to talk to her; I’m not sure if you know this about me, but I love fashion. Love it.”

FYI: Lily is wearing a top and dress by H&M, a Louis Vuitton collar, and a ring by Aterlier Minyon on the cover.

    “I Don’t Reach For Fame” vs. “trademark eyebrows”.

    Holding two conflicting concepts at the same time?

  • Ann

    LIly is very well-grounded, she’s an actress but at the same time she’s also a student at USC. She’s Phil Collins daughter , so she already knows what fame is about. But I love how she’s casual about herself compared to other fame climbers like Lindsay Lohan or the Kardashians.

    You keep your thick eyebrows to be unique but you don’t want to reach fame.. Contrasting huh. I just don’t like you. :P
