Actress Lily Collins has her own social media life, like any other Hollywood celebrity. But her renowned eyebrows have their own fan following and an exclusive Twitter handle! Collins has revealed in many interviews about how insecure she was because of her eyebrows, which always stand out in the crowd. In a desperate attempt to fit in, she used to pluck it religiously until her mom, an American socialite, turned with some words of wisdom. ”You need to accept the quirky things that make you different and what make you beautiful”, her mother said. ”It’s the things that make you stand out that make you unique”, she added.
Lily Collins made her feature film debut at the age of 20 with the sports drama ‘The Blind Side’ in 2009. But the British actress had to wait till 2012 for her breakout role of Snow White in ‘Mirror Mirror.’ Her other notable movies include the indie rom-com ‘Stuck in Love’ (2012), the fantasy thriller ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ (2013) and the controversial Netflix drama, ‘To the Bone.’ Her portrayal of a college dropout who struggles with anorexia earned positive and negative reviews alike for the polarizing representation of the anorexic people.
In 2016, Collins was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her role as Marla Mabrey in ‘Rules Don’t Apply.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Lily Collins movie and TV show?
