A blog dedicated to the lovely and talented actresses Jennifer Lawrence, Lily Collins, Saoirse Ronan, Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson. /
I wasn’t one of those girls who always dreamed of being an actress. I went to a normal school and then these film auditioners turned up when I was nine. Then I just fell into this whirlwind.
"I’m still renting my house. I’m travelling for film work: the studios usually put me up. I still stay at my parents’ house. I have my one car – I didn’t buy an expensive car because I’m a terrible driver. I’d trash it. So I pay for my phone and my laptop, and I bought a record player – I like records – nice little things like that, but I don’t even feel like it [money] is there. It’s not that I take it for granted. It’s just that it doesn’t … I’m sure when the time comes, when I want to start a family and I want to buy a house and I want to send my kids to school it’s going to be incredibly meaningful to me then.”
People always ask if I feel more American or British. The truth is that I love the way of life, the humour and the fashion in Europe. I love the tea and the food. I feel at home when I’m back here: I feel like little Lily again.
“I guess my main worry is that people will start hating what I hate about myself. I worry that everybody will think I am really annoying and just want me to shut up. Which would make so much sense because I annoy myself … I guess I want people to know that if they are annoyed with me, I get it, it’s totally cool. Please forgive me.”
