Lily Collins Biography and Charlie McDowell

Lily Collins Biography: “There are times when I’ve [been on dates and] thought we had a great time and then I’ve never heard from the guy again,” she told Glamour.

“Sometimes that happens after one date, a couple of dates or one month. I would prefer people to be honest with me, as I live like that. I don’t think it will be something I can ever figure out.”

She is married to film director Charlie McDowell in 2021.

5. She used to dabble in journalism before becoming an actress.

Lily Collins Biography: “I started doing journalism for Nickelodeon, Extra, E, various networks. It was fun and interesting because I was interviewing the very actors I wanted to work with,” she revealed to Momtastic.

“I wanted to get more practice, whether it was journalism, on-air time, producing, learning about editing, anything.”

6. She loves to bake.

Lily Collins Biography: “I love baking… it’s really my time in the kitchen to explore and experiment and zone out,” she told Byrdie.

“I love the process: You have to make the dough, the dough chills, then you have time in between finishing the dough and putting them in the oven to clean up and zone out. Then you put them in the oven and you wait for them to bake; you watch them rise, and it smells so good.”

7. Her backup career is journalism.

8. She wrote a book.

Lily Collins Biography: “Writing my book was therapy because writing [my experience] down made it so much more real to me. Sometimes if I write down what I’m feeling, step away from it for a little bit, and read it back, it’s easier to work through,” she told Byrdie.

“There were lots of chapters that I wrote, then stepped away from and re-read, and I thought ‘Oh, okay, I guess I’m really going there,’ or, ‘I didn’t think I was going to talk about that,’ or ‘Wow, that really happened.'”

“It’s because once it’s written down you can step away from it and come back as a viewer or a reader, and you’re not defined by what you’ve written. It’s a part of you, but it’s just words that are stemming from experiences but they’re not defining who you are.”

9. She is very close with her mom.

Lily Collins Biography: “I’m super, super close with my mom. She’s first and foremost the closest person to me that inspires me,” she told Byrdie.

“And my girlfriends who I’ve known since high school and college, who’ve known me since the beginning.”

“They’re really inspiring, powerful women that I’m friends with for a reason. They uplift me, they make me feel great, they call me out on my shit when I need to be called out on it—in the most loving way possible.”

“And they hold me accountable, which, to me, is what you need from a friend,” she added.
