Mirror, Mirror (in theaters March 30) as she opened up about childhood memories,
appreciation and why she’s so happy. This Hollywood darling plays a Snow
White…and she’s just as charming! Check it out.
The fresh take on a modern
classic is about to hit movie screens. Are you ready? We caught up with Lily
Collins, star of the new movie
She’s sentimental. “I would [love] to take memories and relive them for a day. Not
necessarily to go back and change any of them, they’re your favorite memories
for a reason, but it would be so nice to experience them again.”
She’s a sucker for fairytales. “I love all fairy tales. My family would read them to
me before I went to bed. Growing up in England, I would go out and pretend I
had my own little fairy tale land. Every
single one of them brings back memories for me.”
She’s also had embarrassing dates. “Usually when an embarrassing moment happens to me,
I’ll call it out like ‘Oh, that was embarrassing!’ and try to make it not as
embarrassing. [But] at that point it’s kind of a mess the rest of the night.
Either you’re constantly apologizing, or you’re constantly uncomfortable.”

somebody took the time to write down. When I see something like that it

She’s content. “I feel so grateful for what I’m doing right now, and that I get to do
what I love for a job. This whole experience has been one of the happiest
moments of my life. I feel like I grew
up so much along the way, and I’ve found so many new things that make me happy.
Yeah, I’m definitely a happy person.”

Snow White when Mirror, Mirror hits
