SHAPE – Have you ever watched a woman in a movie get a beauty makeover and a new wardrobe and acquire instant confidence (cue the triumphant music)? Sadly, it doesn’t happen like that IRL. Just ask Lily Collins. To celebrate her debut on the cover of Shape, she went to dinner with two elementary school friends after the shoot and reminisced about how awkward they all felt about their bodies as teens. “We wore boys’ board shorts over our swimsuits!” she says. The irony that Collins, 28, was unwaveringly confident and at ease on set all day in one revealing swimsuit after another was not lost on her. “I never dreamed I’d be posing in a bikini on the cover of Shape. It’s a complete 180 for me. It’s a magazine about what it means to be healthy,” she says.

You see, for Collins, the struggle to get healthy was, and still is, real. And she’s refreshingly candid about it. Although she’s fit and radiant now, for more than half a decade she suffered in silence from an eating disorder that had her restricting her intake of food, bingeing and purging, abusing laxatives and diet pills, and perhaps more significantly, hiding it all from her friends and family. But after years of destructive behavior, Collins, who is extremely close to her mom (her dad is musician Phil Collins), realized that she needed to be held accountable. So she came out about her disorder. “My perspective on other people’s view of me was based on this disorder being a secret. But the more open I became about it, the more I was able to be myself,” she says. (More on that here: Lily Collins Reveals Her Past Struggle with Eating Disorders )

Speaking her truth to her inner circle eventually set Collins free to share her story with the world—and because of her journalism background, she had the chops to do it. At 15, she became a correspondent for Elle Girl U.K. (she spent a lot of her childhood in England), and in 2008 she reported on the U.S. presidential election for Nickelodeon. She was later a contributing editor for CosmoGirl and the Los Angeles Times Magazine. Her recently published book, Unfiltered, details her experience with her disease and ended up being “even more honest than I was intending,” she says. “I didn’t realize I’d cover so much.” But she was ready to talk. And that’s a good thing, because she has a lot to say. Here are the chapters on her recovery.

V MAGAZINE – In To the Bone, Lily Collins plays Ellen, a 20-year-old illustrator whose battle with anorexia has brought her to the brink of death. Collins, petite even by Hollywood standards, had to lose serious weight in order to play Ellen. It’s the sort of role that someone who once suffered from an eating disorder, as Collins did, might shy away from. But she embraced the complicated challenge in a healthy way. “[The producers and director] were all female and they were very motherly,” she says. “We worked with a nutritionist, and [the weight loss] was done in a specific, calming, loving way.”

Collins read the script for the film—based on director Marti Noxon’s own struggle with the disorder—in the midst of writing Unfiltered, a book of personal essays. She had just finished a chapter on her eating disorder. “It was like the universe throwing it at me, saying, ‘I think this is something important for you to go through.’” Having overcome her issues, Collins is able to bring a sense of hope to the role. “I had all of the stages there to give to Ellen,” she says. “She doesn’t know how to reach them yet.”

From the very beginning of the film, there’s a steely strength to Ellen. The same can’t be said for other characters at the group home where Ellen is admitted. That’s the reality of addiction: many addicts never recover, but the hope is that movies like this can help. “I would have loved to have seen something like [To the Bone] when I first started having my problems,” says Collins. In the end, Collins lived with the character for the month it took to complete the film. “It was a really long month,” she says. “But how awesome to face a fear head-on like that?”

To the Bone will be released worldwide on Netflix July 14.

Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn
Clients: Lily Collins, Hailee Steinfeld, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Biel, Gwen Stefani
Why they matter: Hollywood’s hottest styling duo delivers the drama, as evidenced by 27-year-old Rules Don’t Apply Globe nominee Collins’ fresh, retro awards-season run, including a screen-siren-worthy marigold Amanda Wakeley. Lopez enjoyed an endless supply of showstoppers — more than 1.2 million @jlo Instagram followers double-tapped on an image of the 47-year-old star’s sweeping, candy pink Ralph & Russo Grammys gown.

Top looks: On Oscar night, Biel, 35, dazzled in metallic KaufmanFranco with a 200-baguette diamond Tiffany & Co. necklace worth about $2 million, cementing her status as awards season’s sexiest plus-one. “It was very different — deconstructed gold sequins and rhinestones with pops of skin showing in a giant tribal-inspired necklace,” says Zangardi. “It was a hit!”

Why she didn’t always love her brows
My mom always said the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful. But when you’re younger, they’re normally the things that make you insecure. For me, it was my eyebrows. They were overly thick and luscious. So I went to town and plucked them. When you get older, [you realize] the things that define your differences are beautiful.

What she learned from writing her book, Unfiltered
[My book] is all about my experiences growing up and what it is to become a young woman in today’s day and age. I talk about a lot of the taboo things young girls don’t like to discuss. But the second we do, we realize we’re not alone. That includes self-confidence issues, body image issues, and accepting things that are different about yourself. It doesn’t matter what feature you’re talking about, whether it’s a physical feature or an insecurity about your personality. It’s what defines you as who you are. So it’s all about embracing that inner you, almost as a superhero and saying, “We all have flaws.” But sometimes those flaws can be turned into our greatest strengths.

The treatment she can’t live without
I love getting oxygen facials because I travel a lot. My skin gets pretty dry with all the airplanes. Also, I love Lancôme’s Genifique Serum, which comes in a mask now. They’re gooey and strange. But the next morning, you see the radiance in your skin.

Lily Collins, 28, is an actress and the author of the memoir Unfiltered.
