Lily Collins for Los Angeles Times

emily 0 comments Articles, Photos, Photoshoots, Press

LA TIMES – “Warren Beatty wants you to call him at home.”

This was the message Lily Collins received out of the blue three years ago, just hours before she was about to embark on a European press tour. She had never met the Hollywood legend before, but she called him anyway. He told her he was directing a new movie and felt like he’d met on it with every other actress in town, save for her.

So in the midst of packing, Collins invited Beatty over. He told her his next film was set in the 1950s and involved Howard Hughes, but didn’t reveal anything else about the project. Mostly, he just wanted to get a sense of Collins’ personality. Then he left, and she flew off to promote “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.”

It was supposed to be a pivotal moment in Collins’ career. She was starring in a young adult adaptation that was meant to turn into the next “Hunger Games” franchise. But when the action flick didn’t perform at the box office, its sequel was scrapped. Discouraged, Collins returned to Los Angeles.

I came home, and all of a sudden I became available,” Collins recalled, sitting in the expansive Beverly Hills home where she was raised. “So Warren started inviting me to a bunch of lunches and dinners with him and Annette [Bening, his wife, who plays Collins’ mother in the film]. I didn’t want to ask too many questions or give him any reason to back off. And I thought, ‘At the end of the day, if none of this goes anywhere, I have the coolest stories to tell and I’ve learned so much from him already.’”

By the sixth meeting or so, Beatty finally told Collins about his movie, “Rules Don’t Apply,” which opens Wednesday. The film follows aspiring starlet Marla Mabrey, who moves from Virginia to L.A. after being hired as a contract actress for Hughes [played by Beatty]. Once she lands in Hollywood, she struggles to maintain her moral compass — especially as she becomes entangled in romances with her driver [Alden Ehrenreich] and even Hughes himself.

After Beatty at last told Collins the film’s plot, he invited her over to his house to read the screenplay he’d written.

He put me into a library with the script and pencils and Post-Its and water,” the 27-year-old recalled, “and he would come in and check on me. ‘How are you liking it? What do you think? Do you like it?’”

Lily Collins Reveals the Best Advice She Received From Warren Beatty on ‘Rules Don’t Apply’

emily 0 comments Articles, Interviews, Photos, Photoshoots, Press

VARIETY – Born in England and raised in Southern California, Lily Collins, daughter of singer/songwriter Phil Collins, started acting at a young age, with credits that include “The Blind Side” and “Mirror Mirror.” She stars with Alden Ehrenreich in Warren Beatty’s “Rules Don’t Apply,” with Beatty as Howard Hughes. The film bows at the AFI Festival before its big-screen launch Nov. 23.

What was it like being on set with Warren Beatty?
He wore so many hats, as director, producer, writer, actor. He’s so lovely and so mentorish to me. You always hope someone will take you under their wing and teach you — when it’s Warren Beatty, it’s like, “Oh my god, how is this real?”

What was the best advice he gave you?
Allow yourself to surprise yourself. And, the instant you give it up to the moment and are present, something happens. But it only happens when you trust the people around you. I trusted him, Alden, and the rest of the cast and crew.

Describe your character.
Marla is an extremely optimistic, passionate young woman who comes to Hollywood thinking she knows it all. She thinks she has a certain set of rules to be successful. Through her trials and tribulations here, she realizes it isn’t all what it seems.

Can you relate to her?
Completely. I think she’s very open in her turmoil in the beginning — she’s very vocal about it. Maybe some of the other characters I’ve played have been more closed off, and not been as honest about how they feel, emotionally.”

What was the most interesting thing you learned about Howard Hughes?
I knew basics. I knew who he was, and I knew his influence in film and some in aviation. But I didn’t know he was so forward-thinking — or how political he was, or how vast his influence was. He’s an enigma, but at the same time he was so present in many facets of different industries.

Lily Collins Opens Up on Love, Destiny and Breaking Hollywood’s Rules

emily 0 comments Articles, Interviews, Photos, Photoshoots, Press

FASHION MAGAZINE – When someone as legendary as Warren Beatty handpicks a woman to be the leading lady in a film he’s directing, expect her career to soar. After all, this is the man who cast former flame Madonna and current wife Annette Bening in two of the biggest dramas of the ’90s: Dick Tracy and Bugsy. He also starred alongside some extremely talented women throughout the ’60s (Natalie Wood in Splendor In The Grass), ’70s (Goldie Hawn in Shampoo), ’80s (Diane Keaton in Reds), and late ’90s (Halle Berry in Bullworth) and is known for dating the likes of Cher, Joni Mitchell, Barbra Streisand and Carly Simon.

This is all to say that the man is obsessively drawn to talent on and off the screen, and choosing Lily Collins to be the lead in his latest film, Rules Don’t Apply—where he plays Howard Hughes and she plays acting ingénue Marla Mabrey—seems to be consistent with his taste. The 27-year-old has been acting since she was 2, had a big break in the blockbuster film, Mirror, Mirror and has since been cast in a dozen big projects, including Okja, an upcoming Netflix series she stars in alongside Tilda Swinton.

While in Toronto to do the publicity rounds for Rules Don’t Apply (which opens November 23), Collins spent the morning with FASHION, taking in Toronto’s sites, including the city’s Distillery District. While touring the area, she humoured us by answering a few fast ones.

When you first met Warren Beatty did you immediately feel like a quick connection?
To tell you the truth, during the first bunch of conversations we had, I didn’t know if he was sold on me at all. I was just having these amazing lunches with Warren. I didn’t know until a couple months after these chats that I even had the part. I didn’t know the story of the script until meeting four or five! The first meeting was at my house.

In terms of your connection to the character—who is a Hollywood ingénue—how would you say you’re most like Marla?
I think I’m most like her in that she’s so driven, passionate, and determined. At the beginning of the story, it’s Marla’s drive and passion that propels her forward through all these trials and tribulations. I’m someone who’s extremely passionate and dedicated to what I believe in and what I want to do. When I was starting out in the industry, I got told “no” so many times. It didn’t deter me from continuing. I really pushed through. I think Marla’s tenacity is very much like mine.

How would you say you are least like her?
She left Hollywood. It was too much for her to handle in the situation that she was in. I admire what she did because she needed to mature. She wanted to be a mother and knew Hollywood wasn’t the place for her. I think I have a support system around me and people that I trust within the industry. If there are any things that come up that are problems that are hard to deal with, I have a supportive backbone to help me get through them. She didn’t have that.

Lily Collins for The New York Times

emily 0 comments Articles, Interviews, Photos, Photoshoots, Press

NY TIMES – In her latest film, “Rules Don’t Apply” (out on Nov. 23), Lily Collins, 27, plays an aspiring actress, but in real life her career is red-hot. Along with the film (and three more movies arriving in 2017), she has written a memoir titled “Unfiltered,” to be released in March. Raised mostly in Los Angeles, Ms. Collins spent summers in England, where her father, the musician Phil Collins, lives. Here, she shares her skin-care and beauty regimen.

Skin Care
First, I splash cold water on my face just to wake me up. Then I use the Lancôme Énergie de Vie line. I’m an ambassador for the brand, so I’ve tested the products. These are the ones that work for me because I feel they brighten, and the finishes aren’t sticky. I use the facial wash, the toner gel and a cream. Then I always put on a sunscreen.

There’s no California tan about me. People assume I can’t tan, but I actually can. I went on a trip to Hawaii when I was younger and came back so tan that people were like, “What happened?” It’s just not something I actively do. I want to embrace my ivory. I’ve been using a Kiehl’s sunscreen, which is super-light and doesn’t have a fragrance.

During the day, I’m constantly reapplying hand cream. My grandma used to do it all the time, so maybe I got it from her. I love the smell of rose, and there’s a Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream with a rosewater scent that I have with me everywhere. It’s so silky, and it makes your cuticles look amazing.

Makeup
When I’m off duty, I wear very little. My motto is the less there is on you, the less there is to go wrong. If I am wearing makeup, I love the Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow. It’s so luminous. And it lets my freckles still shine through. If I need it, I do the Armani powder, too. The important thing, especially in L.A., is that nothing looks coated on. You’ve got the sun and pollution already, so you don’t want more stuff clogging you up.

Then I always do a swipe of mascara. Then my brows. I’m very thankful the whole big brow look is an “in” thing now. I’m like, “Everybody keep embracing them.” They do need to be tamed on occasion. I use the clear Great Lash mascara from Maybelline for that.

I always wear lip balm. I love Smith’s Rosebud Salve. I’m constantly reapplying. If I’m going out, I may throw on a bit of blush and a lip. I really love the YSL lip colors. I’ll go for a deep plum. It works with my pale complexion and dark hair. It may take me a while to get it perfect. I’m no makeup genius.
