Lily Collins Was Rejected From Magazines Due to Her Skinny Frame

Lily Collins takes the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 28-year-old To the Bone star had to share with the mag:

On her struggles with body image: “From a young age, I’ve had a desire to put forward this perfect image […]. Even though there was all this un-prettiness going on inside of me, I wanted to make sure that my appearance and composure were a certain way. I imagined that people knew I had these secrets and they’d be judging.”

On getting complimented by a friend while preparing to play a character with an eating disorder: “Someone I’ve known for a long time said to me, ‘Oh, wow, look at you!’ I tried to explain [I had lost weight for a role] and she goes, ‘No! I want to know what you’re doing, you look great!’ I got into the car with my mom and said, ‘That is why the problem exists.’”

On being rejected from magazines because she was too skinny: “I was about to embark on press for Rules Don’t Apply and I was told that a lot of media did not want to put me in their magazines. Not just on the cover – they wouldn’t put me inside looking the way I did, even though it was for a movie. No one knew my connection to the disorder, and at the time I was super upset because I thought, this is a huge moment for me and I can’t maximize on it. But it hit me – “Oh, this is going to majorly f*** with your career now, not just your health.” I told my publicist that if I could snap my fingers and gain ten pounds right that second, I would give anything to do that. I never thought I’d ever say anything like that! This cannot keep me from what I’ve always wanted.”

The 26-year-old actress opened up about trying to get her own show as a teenager while making an appearance on The Tonight Show on Tuesday (June 27).

“When I was younger, I wanted to be the youngest talk show host! I would go into boardrooms at 15, 16 years old with legit pie charts that I had done research on why we needed a young talk show host,” she explained.

Lily added, “So I’d go into networks with my blazer and my cell phone and I would pitch my show!”

“I suffered from an eating disorder as a teenager for quite a few years,” Lily shared. “This project came along my desk at the time when I was in the middle of writing my book ["Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me."], talking about my experience with eating disorders. It was kinda like the universe saying this is something you need to talk about for yourself but also to bring to the attention of people in general.”

“My experiences with this were a beautiful gift to be able to give to my character [Ellen],” Lily continued, adding, “There is always going a part of you that goes, ‘Oh, well stepping back into the shoes of something that wasn’t positive for you may be painful,’ but I think that that was so therapeutic for me as Lily but also to give to Ellen as the character.”
