When I first met Lily Collins on the set of The Mortal Instruments movie, I was blown away with how sweet, humble, and kind she is. The actress just came across as genuine and you couldn’t help but think that she was your new bestie.
So we’re excited to read her new book. That’s right – Lily Collins is coming out with a book.
“It’s definitely like having my diary published,” the 27-year-old actress told People.
“It was not about attacking, it was about showing how you can be given situations in life and turn them into lessons,” Lily said. “It takes knowing what you don’t want to know what you do want.”
She’s so excited and we are thrilled for her.
I couldn't be prouder or more excited to finally reveal this labor of love that I've been writing for the past year! Thank you for inspiring me to be brave, honest, and able to open up about the things we all struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more. You constantly remind me that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for us to realize we're never alone. Can't wait for March 7 when I get to share with you how I've started #LivingLifeUnfiltered… @EpicReads @MaraRoszak @MollyRStern @Naj_Jamai
“This is my way to open up conversation with young women and say, ‘Hey, we’re all the same,’ ”
Collins said to People she first thought of writing a memoir a year and a half ago.
The book hits shelves, March 7, 2017.
