When you are the daughter of one of the biggest music superstars to ever grace the music scene, it can be quite difficult to get yourself out of the shadows and make a name for yourself in the entertainment industry in your own right. For Lily Collins though, the daughter of the legendary Phil Collins, it does not seem to have been a problem at all.
Lily Collins has become a top Hollywood star in recent years, with her big eyebrows becoming something that a lot of people have enjoyed talking about throughout her career. Lily has now opened up about those bushy eyebrows, admitting that she found it difficult to fit in while growing up, even going as far as hacking them off, much to the disappointment of her mother.
Collins explained, "Well growing up moving to England from Los Angeles it was a culture shock coming here. And I wanted to fit in and I think we all want to fit in at a young age, and we alter things about ourselves that we think are different to fit in better, and one of those things was my eyebrows. They were so bold they were very big on my face, and as a kid I wanted to change that. So, I took it upon myself to hack them away and I thought I had done such a great job."
She added, "And my mum was looking at me at dinner one night and said 'What did you do?' And I thought 'I know, they look amazing right?' And she proceeded to tell me 'You need to accept the quirky things that make you different and what make you beautiful, it's the things that stand out that make you unique, and allow people to appreciate that."
Lily Collins stars alongside the likes of Keanu Reeves and Alanna Ulbach in the new movie To the Bone, which featured at Sundance Film Festival earlier in the year.
