Lily Collins: 'Mortal Instruments' is 'Not Just A CGI World'

Lily Collins flashes a smile as she waits for her car outside Red O restaurant after having dinner with friends on Tuesday (March 26) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 24-year-old actress recently talked about why she was drawn to her role in her upcoming film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

“I love the stories. I love Clary because she’s this heroine who’s this normal girl, who finds out she has these powers,” Lily expressed to MTV News. “The emotion is there. It’s not just a CGI world. It’s not just a translation of a book. It’s more emotionally, character-based than just aesthetically beautiful.”

    This movie sounds like a bomb. I’m thinking mortal instruments vs the host. But mnortal instruments city of bones has a really bad title. Even though it’s based on a book. I don’t even bother correcting my misspelled word cause the title really sucks. Plus it’s saoirse who has a far better line of work compared to her. Max is also better good looking than that long haired dude. Flop.

    Lily is so pretty and comes across as such a sweet person. I can’t believe she just turned 24 last week but she still looks like a teenager! Love that she’s back to brunette and still rocking her flawless eyebrows.
