One month, two magazine covers. You know you've arrived when you're pulling double duty on the newsstand. Hours after Vanity Fair's starlet-spangled Hollywood issue hit our desks, we found ourselves face-to-face with "Mirror Mirror" star Lily Collins once again, this time on the cover of Seventeen magazine, where she's looking all kinds of adorable in a mini chartreuse frock. Inside the issue, the 22-year-old talks about growing up in the spotlight and paving her own path.
Lily's "Snow White" remake hits theaters March 30, and director Tarsem Singh hasn't been shy about what won Lily the role—namely, her eyebrows! "I just saw her eyebrows and I said, 'That's Snow White,'" he joked in an interview. But Lily hasn't always been comfortable with her prominent brow. “It used to bother me—having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in, but I hated them and couldn’t wait for them to grow back," she told the mag. "Now I embrace them. I’ve realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”
Of course, being beautiful has helped Lily land some plum roles, but she also readily admits that having a famous father (musician Phil Collins) didn't hurt either. “My last name may have opened doors, but I have to keep them open," she said.
And keep them open she has, landing parts opposite some of the industry's hottest, including Taylor Lautner and Armie Hammer. But there is one drawback to working with such tasty man meat: Hollywood crushes can be a little...awkward.
“It’s weird to have celebrity crushes now because I could actually meet them or work with them!" she lamented. "When I was younger, it was definitely Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Titanic'. I had pictures of him and I had ‘NSYNC posted. I had the biggest crush on Justin Timberlake!”
Didn't we all...
