At the end the DJ came on and said, "For all of you who don't know, that was Phil Collins - Lily Collins's dad." 'I thought that was the weirdest thing, just so bizarre. Even my dad has said to me, "You know, I am known as your dad now". But he is extremely proud and couldn't be happier. Hide

That, to me, if I can help make people a part of a story, that's what I enjoyed most about being little was that I was taken into another world. Hide

It's close to his heart. It excites him to see me taking on roles about growing up but, yeah, kissing scenes aren't easy for him. And in Stuck in Love (2012), I take my top off, so that was awkward.

My natural accent when I was little was British and then, when I moved to the States, everyone made fun of me and I just adapted to an American one and now this is what comes out of my mouth. Now it's just a bit of a hot mess. Hide

If I'm out and I'm photographed with someone, then it is what it is...That's always been my natural feeling. My family went through a lot of public situations and I saw that side of it from a very young age. Hide

I even plucked them once so I'd fit in, but I hated them and couldn't wait for them to grow back. Now I embrace them. I realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.

I feel the same way,' then all of a sudden, you feel more at peace with yourself and you can feel more confident with who you are. Hide

You need a healthy mix of both really, but it's important not to think so much that you're not able to follow your heart. Hide

It depends on who's in the movie and how their process works, as well. It takes a director who is open to that because you have a script, but then something funny could happen on set. So, to have people around you who encourage improve is really exciting. Hide

I think it's all about watching and just taking it all in. It's not even when the cameras are rolling, necessarily. You can see how they interact with the rest of the crew, and how they deal with being a character and then being themselves. Hide
