Lily Collins Nylon March 2012

Lily Collins covered the March 2012 issue of Nylon magazine. In the interview, Lily talked about the audition for her upcoming film, Mirror Mirror, and what it is like have a famous father.

On Having Phil Collins as a Father: "Obviously, I grew up seeing the pros and cons of the business with my dad, but he was really passionate about what he does, and you can't stop doing what you're passionate about because someone is photographing you... A lot of people's perception is that I don't have to work my way to get in a room because someone's always interested in the last name, but I always say that personality opens doors, but character keeps them open. Everyone can have something special to get them in, but once you're in, it's sort of like, 'Okay, so?'"

On Her Mirror Mirror Audition: "I just had this gut feeling that I needed to try one more thing because I wanted it so badly... so I went back in and I knocked on the door, and they let me [audition] again. I'm persistent but not in an annoying way. I'm really determined, and I want to try my best, and once I've known I've done all I can do, it's totally fine."
