If you’ve watched Emily In Paris, you know that Lily Collins character, Emily, is quite umm… happy all the time. She is taking life in, amazed by every moment, full of life, and more bubbly than a bottle of champagne.
And that’s okay.
Because her optimism is part of what makes her character so great. Now, even though we feel that way, we do know that not everyone agrees with us. A lot of people find Emily annoying. Her over the top bubbliness and optimism is a lot to take in.
“A lot of the qualities that Emily has, if you put them on paper, would seem so annoying,” Collins said to the outlet. And that is true, but if we’re being honest, we’ve always found that it’s there characteristics of Emily that make her more relatable and real. Who wouldn’t want to move to Paris and have adventures.
Sometimes Emily is a little tame compared to what we would be. Well, mostly, cussing out the company that we work for as we have to walk up like 5 or 6 floors to the company apartment. No one likes that many stairs.
She continued, “To have someone be optimistic, bright and bubbly—it’s sad to think that people would look and go, ‘That’s a lot.’ They’re such beautiful qualities, and the fact that she can partner that with being vulnerable and asking for help and making mistakes—she’s not infallible.”
But that’s part of what we love about Emily. Do you think what Lily had to say about her character rings true?
We want to know what you think of Emily? Love her? Hate her? Tell us all the things.
