Who is Lily Collins?

Born Lily Jane Collins under the sign of Pisces on the 18th of March 1989 in Guildford, Surrey, England, Lily Collins is a 30-year-old English-American Caucasian actress, model, TV host and writer, of German and Russian Jewish descent. She is perhaps best known to the world for her significant presence on the television screen and across the news outlets as a popular actress, most famously for her prestigious recent role as Edith Bratt in “Tolkien” – a film about the early life of probably the most talented writer the world has ever known, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. She has also had a number of other successes over the course of her often lucrative acting career since 2009.

Who is Lily Collins’ boyfriend today?

Lily Collins has definitely dated a good number of famous men to date. Naturally, her fans have always been interested in any change in her love life. However, Lily  doesn’t appear to have a current boyfriend, but is yet to address these inquiries publicly.

Who did she date?

Lily has had an extensive public love life so far, generally more so than an average celebrity. As for her romantic involvements prior to the age of 20, there is almost no information across all of the credible sources that could accurately describe this part of her life. Her first public relationship started in 2009 with stuntman Riley Harper, who remained with her for a year. In 2010, the star of “Twilight”, Taylor Lautner, became Lily Collins’ boyfriend, and they dated for one year, and then she remained single until 2012, when she was seen on the red carpet with Chord Overstreet. The fans speculated that they were together, but this was never confirmed.

Between 2012 and 2013, she dated Jamie Campbell Bower and Zac Efron. In 2014, she dated Thomas Cocquerel and Matt Easton. The next year, she dated Jamie Campbell Bower again, and was rumored to have had a fling with Chris Evans. The last known Lily Collins’ boyfriend is, again, the aforementioned Jamie, who dated her once again in between 2017 and 2018. She is not known to be with anyone at the moment, and there’s been no controversy surrounding her current status.

Early Life and Education: Growing up in Los Angeles

Lily was primarily raised in her birthplace by her famous musician father Phil Collins and her former Beverly Hills Women’s Club president mother Jill Tavelman. After her parents divorced in 1996, her mother was awarded custody and she took Lily to Los Angeles, California USA. She is in the middle of five siblings, two of whom are her older half-brother musician Simon Collins and her older half-sister actress Joely Collins – from her father’s first marriage. Lily is the only child from his second marriage, and her younger two half-siblings are from the third marriage, named Nicholas Collins and Matthew Collins.

When it comes to her earliest interests, there isn’t much information across the authoritative sources that could clarify specifics about this part of her life, though she is believed to have harbored a passion for acting. In her book entitled “Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me”, she revealed that she suffered from an eating disorder as a child. As for her education, she first attended Harvard-Westlake School, from where she matriculated in 2007. She then decided to further her studies by enrolling into the University of South California, from where she graduated with a major in broadcast journalism in 2011.

Career: A young actress

Lily’s first role took place in BBC’s “Growing Pains” when she was only two years old. However, her acting career, to which she owes the most significant amount of her net worth, started in 2009, when she appeared as Phoebe Abrams in two episodes of “90210”. In the same year, she also starred as Collins Tuohy in “The Blind Side”. Two years later, she took part in “Priest” as Lucy Pace, and in the same year, she met and co-starred with Taylor Lautner, one of her ex-partners, in “Abduction” as Karen. A year after, she was Snow White in “Mirror Mirror”, and in the latter part of 2012, she appeared as Samantha Borgens in “Stuck in Love”. In 2013, she took part in four films, the most significant of which is “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” – her second most popular role. Another one of her significant acting achievements took place in 2014, when she appeared as Rosie Dunne in “Love, Rosie”. She appeared in two films in 2017, and in nine episodes of the TV show entitled “The Last Tycoon”, as Celia Brady, from 2016 to 2017.

The Last Few Years

From 2018 to 2019 she appeared in five titles, the most significant of which is of course the one in which she starred as Edith Bratt, the young and only love of the ‘father of fantasy’ – John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, the man who created “The Lord of the Rings” universe and wrote “The Silmarillion” and “The Hobbit”. Naturally, her ability to execute such a highly esteemed role earned her much more recognition, both critically and publicly, and she has since been cast in five more titles, all of which are currently in post- or pre-production. One which is likely the most significant is a show called “Emily in Paris”, in which she has the title role; the TV series is set to be released in 2020, with a total of 10 announced episodes.

Is Lily Collins single or engaged?

When it comes to anyone that could be called Lily Collins’ boyfriend, the man’s identity is unknown at the moment. Lily is yet to come forward and address any speculations that the fans may have regarding her current love life. None of the trusted sources can at the moment clarify anything about this matter. Thus, she is believed to be single, unattached at this time.

What is Lily Collins’ Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Lily Collins is, as of early 2019? According to various authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the total of Lily’s accumulated wealth is close to $8 million. She made her fortune by lending her acting expertise to various films and TV shows over the course of her life, most prominently to the movie entitled “Tolkien” as Edith Bratt in 2019. Seeing as her career is continuing to develop, the said amount is bound to grow in the years to come.

Body Measurements

When it comes to her physical specifications, she is known to be 5ft 5ins (165cm) tall, and her weight is around 112lbs (51kg) at the moment. Her vital statistics are 34-24-33, her bra size is 32B, her dress size is 6 and her shoe size is 7. Also, Lily’s hair is dark brown, as well as her eyes being a placid hazel and her complexion mostly has a bright tone. Lastly, her body shape is generally described as slim.

Social Media Presence

Thanks to the ever-expanding grasp that social media has on worldwide audiences, it is in the best interests of most celebrities to keep their fans informed about their activities and thus sustain and potentially increase their rating and profit. Lily herself is no stranger to this popular trend, as her dedication to posting updates on her public profiles and engaging with her fans is at an all-time high. Her Facebook page has almost 3.5 million followers, her Twitter account over 700,000, and her Instagram account more than 15 million fans.

1I'm not one to hide anything, but I don't feel the need to comment directly on [my relationships]...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.
2I like to think of myself as a very passionate person, and as very determined. So, if I set my mind on something, I definitely stop at no end to find within myself the power to keep going, whether that involves thinking of a new approach to a problem, or physically challenging myself.
3It's great when improve is encouraged. It's a really fun thing. 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.
4rooms of older executives and try to pitch talk show ideas and when I was writing as a journalist I would pitch ideas for my articles and I definitely understand that excitement of a pitch and what that is to be young and a woman and trying to make your voice heard.
5To look into that persons eyes and find yourself so completely lost in another world, a world full of absolute comfort and happiness.
6When it comes to the work, I'm excited to see what people think. When it comes to the private life, that's when I don't pay attention.
7It's really important to stand up for yourself and not always agree with what people say if indeed you don't feel that that's true.
8I love watching old movies anyway - I grew up with my mom watching old movies and being immersed in the history of old Hollywood.
9I think it's important to relate to one another about issues that you're having, because the second you open up and someone else says, 'Oh, me too. 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.
10No matter what, I need to maintain my sense of self and always be true to who I am.
11People are quick to jump to conclusions.
12I had some difficult times when I first moved to Los Angeles when people would tell me I was saying things wrong. I felt different although my mum kept reminding me it was OK to be different.
13I've grown up knowing that you put as much of your private life out there as you feel comfortable with.
14Everything happens for a reason and, of course at times it's very discouraging, but at the end of the day you can't take it personally and move onward because if you let it sit with you, then it starts to eat away at you and you're allowing someone else to steal your excitement. No one wants that.
15In the end when you accept yourself for who you are and you work with what you've got, you couldn't be more beautiful because you're confident and everyone notices.
16It truly is the power that you have deep within yourself that gives you the strength to pursue your dreams.
17The idea that I get to travel and do what I love and call it a job is just a blessing.
18I do believe in listening to your mind as well that that you need to be smart about certain things, to protect yourself. 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.
19I'm such a believer in going to set, even when you're not work because I think the best things to be learned, you don't necessarily get from your own scene or from someone speaking to you and telling you advice. 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.
20I never understood the word "celebrity." It was just part of my everyday.
21Someone told me they were listening to the radio and they were playing classic hits. 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.
22I grew up in England in the countryside in basically farmland and forests. I was read fairy tales before bedtime and I was totally the young girl who loved fairy tale princesses.
23That is me in a nutshell: a little bit English and a little bit American.
24I just did a film actually in Dublin where I played British, so it was lovely to be back in my natural accent, cause I haven't had one since I was five. 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.
25I don't feel the need to profess anything publicly or confirm something that in a normal situation you wouldn't have to speak about. 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.
26[on people who watched her movies] It's very, very sweet when little girls come up to me, or when people come up and say that they've liked a film or that they've watched it with their family and been happy and laughed. 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.
27I think it's hilarious that people think that I have the best eyebrows in Hollywood.
28I've just turned 24 but I'll always be their little girl. My dad started as an actor. 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.
29[on her appearance on the cover of Teen Vogue] I don't know if this is too weird to say, but this is completely surreal for me. Bizarre. The cover of Teen Vogue has been on my bucket list forever.
30I like to wear as least amount of makeup as I can during my everyday life because I'm just all about keeping my skin healthy and hydrated and I love to laugh and have a great time and smile - that's when I feel the most pretty so I just want to make sure that I stay happy.
31[on her eyebrows] It used to bother me - having bigger, fuller brows. 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.
32I don't like reading things that people say on the Internet because I know so much of it is not true. I don't want to waste my time worrying about what other people are thinking. I just want to focus on being able to do cool projects.
33I'm drawn to roles that have real substance, that aren't just the victim or the teenage girl or the girlfriend.
34Decisions are the endless uncertainties of life that we'll not know if they're right until the very end, so do the best you can and hope its right.
