Lily Collins Quotes
“It’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.”
“I grew up understanding the pros and cons of what you’re getting into and knowing what comes with your job. I like to keep my private life private, and then work is work. I feel so far I’ve had a really good balance with that.”
“I’m drawn to roles that have real substance, that aren’t just the victim or the teenage girl or the girlfriend.”
