Lily Collins: Elle Canada's September 2013 Cover Girl!

Lily Collins graces the September 2013 cover of Elle Canada.

The 24-year-old actress opened up about her upbringing, family, taking the spotlight and Clary Fray. Check it:

On family: “I’d like to have get-togethers and things at the house — I’m looking forward to that, being a mom one day. Now that I’m baking and cooking, I can’t wait to share it with kids. I really can’t wait. I want a big family.”

On “City of Bones”: “It deals with sexuality, family issues, with a girl trying to find herself and grow up. It deals with a lot of issues that I don’t think young-adult novels have dealt with before. I think she’s an amazing literary heroine for this new generation. I don’t feel that she is this girl that allows herself to sit back and bask in the men in her journey. She is never a victim. She figures out what to do.”

On her childhood and growing up around the industry: “I’m just alert — I’m aware. I witnessed a lot through the process of growing up in the industry. I grew up knowing the fine line between keeping things public and private. And that’s a cool thing—to be able to avoid mess-ups early on. My parents really instilled this respect for the arts in me. I’ve always wanted to be grateful and not get jaded, because it can be so easy. I want to keep being surprised by what I get to do.”
