We all know that my obsession with Emily in Paris is real. The show is just what we need at this point in time.
When I think of Emily, I would have thought that she was like 28ish years old. Just by her stature in her company and being sent to Paris for work, I definitely would have thought she was older.
The star of the show, Lily Collins spoke with British Vogue about just how old Emily is.
“I don’t believe we’ve ever given her a specific ‘number’ for her age, but I believe that she’s pretty fresh out of college. Maybe this is her first year after graduation. I want to say she’s like, 22-ish,” Lily told the website.
Ummm was her Dad, or like her boyfriends Dad or her best friends Dad the boss? Cause I am so confused.
“She’s had enough experience at her company in Chicago to have earned the respect of her boss,” Lily continued. “She’s a smart cookie and really innovative – and this is not her first rodeo doing what she does. She’s gone to school for this, and she’s completed internships.”
I get it. She’s been committed to her job and I respect that. My life is my job and I love it to be that way. I love growing each and every day through the things that I learn through work and life.
“Basically, she’s always kind of been a big fish in a small pond – and then suddenly in Paris she’s a fish out of water. If she had gone to a different company in Chicago, she would have been taken seriously – but in Paris, she’s not prepared for the cultural shift that she experiences at Savoir. Her only real experience of Europe is through movies and TV,” Lily said.
I GET IT. The cultural differences are pretty big. But I still woulda guessed Emily was 28ish.
How old did you thin that Emily was?
