Lily Collins In Seventeen Magazine

Actress Lily Collins shines on the September cover of Seventeen magazine. The issue hits newsstands, August 6th. In the interview, Collins, who stars in the highly anticipated movie, The Mortal Instruments opens up how she’s been inspired by Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence, who shot to fame after starring in major franchises based on popular book series.

On her new sense of style:

I’ve definitely edged-up my style a little but not for any reason other than I’m experimenting with myself. I always wanted tattoos, so this past November, I got two. I got my back done first its my handwriting and it says, Love always and forever.

On looking to Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence and Twilight’s Kristen Stewart for career inspiration:

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.
