Lily Collins SEVENTEEN Cover Girl


On not making schedules: ‘I used to be a big planner and had to have things figured out ahead of time, but I’m leaning to love living in the moment. Last night, I called my friend randomly and said, ‘Where are you? I want to come see you!’ It’s not a new version of me. I’m just embracing it more.’

On her relationship with Jamie: ‘We’ve made a conscious decision to go out and live life. I’m not one to hide anything, but I don’t feel the need to comment directly on it… I think it would be a shame to not live in the moment and not enjoy everything that’s happening in fear of other people’s opinions.’

On her goody-goody reputation in high school: ‘I didn’t feel the pressure in drinking or doing drugs. I wanted to remember the fun moments and not wake up and go, ‘Um, I think I had fun?”

On Kristen Steward and Jennifer Lawrence: ‘I admire how they’ve both handled the fame that came with those roles and their ability to step outside those roles and do other projects. That’s what I want to do: balance fun big movies with gritty passion projects I love.’
