LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Being “the fairest of them all” comes at a price, and for “Mirror Mirror” star Lily Collins, it’s people talking about her distinctive eyebrows.
“It used to bother me – having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in, but I hated them and couldn’t wait for them to grow back,” the actress, who plays Snow White, opposite Julia Roberts’ Evil Queen in “Mirror Mirror,” told Seventeen magazine in its March cover story.
“Now I embrace them,” she added. “I’ve realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”
Another thing she’s embraced is being the daughter of a famous pop star – Brit Phil Collins — but the actress wants people to know she works hard on her own.
“My last name may have opened doors, but I have to keep them open,” she told the mag.
The 22-year-old rising star is coming to grips with Hollywood, but she admitted it’s put a spin on her early crushes.
“It’s weird to have celebrity crushes now because I could actually meet them or work with them!” she said. “When I was younger, it was definitely Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Titanic.’ I had pictures of him and I had ‘NSYNC posted. I had the biggest crush on Justin Timberlake!”
